Default E-flite UMX A-10 Warthog

This is my complete E-flite UMX A-10 Warthog unboxing & first three flights video on this Ultra Micro A-10 EDF Jet.

Complete Unboxing & Maiden Flights:

E-flite UMX A-10 RC Jet Review Notes:

Pros:
- Ugraded EDF Units from 28mm to 30mm
- 3S power handling
- This can take advantage of a number of the Smart features
- The landing gear has been improved
- Strengthened nose and other weak points have received upgrades

Cons:
- A magnet was missing from the fuse to hold on the canopy. Not cool and it caused my canopy to come off during a rough landing on the maiden flight.
- IC2 connector for many, but not those that are already emersed in the Smart Ecosystem.
- The recommended CG in the manual is not correct for mine, but I quickly found the sweet spot.

Just got one of these a few days ago. Looking forward to flying it soon as the weather improves.
I will be using some 3s 800mah Gens-ace lipos.
Changed out the connector to an XT30 since I had nothing to fit the IC2 and Horizon has no adapters or connectors in stock.
How did your CG on the third flight compare with the manual?

I wish you luck on your maiden! The CG on mine was forward the book CG a little bit. I started with the recommended CG and it was too tail heavy.

Here is one thing to keep in mind. These planes are so small, that slight variations with glue etc can significantly impact CG. Mine and JohnVHRC's were more tail heavy, while others were more nose heavy out of the box.

I hope that helps!
