Hey FG'ers! There's another contest going on over at RCGroups that I want to make you all aware of. Now through 2/26, enter for a chance to win the new FMS A-10 Thunderbolt II PNP! This 70mm twin EDF Warthog comes complete with electric retracts, 17g and 9g digital metal gear servos, a pair of 70a esc's, two 2860 1850kv motors, and LED lighting pre-installed.
To enter the contest, post a picture of your best A-10 face! Sometimes, the A-10 has the P-40 shark mouth, and other times, it has a Warthog snarl; either way, we want to see your impersonation of this beautiful utilitarian tank buster! So head on over to RCGroups and enter for a chance to win.
Below are a few glamor shots from the FG staff, showing hat we're looking for. Brrrrrrrrrt!
FMS is proud to bring you this highly detailed twin ducted fan version of the A-10 Warthog. It incorporates many new and advanced construction and assembly features such as the optimized screw based assembly, ball links and a heavy duty wing spar and latest multi-connect technology. The “Hog” assembles quickly. In addition, the A-10 uses our newest locked-rotor mode e-retract system coupled with our refined and oriented CNC-processed metal landing gear set for resisting those not-too-perfect landings. The power system uses our new and improved twin 70mm 12-blade EDF V2, KV1850 inner-running motor system that provides tremendous power and speed when couple with a 6S battery.
