The Flite Test A-10 Warthog is one of the largest and most complete Flite Test kits available. Now made of Maker Foam this kit includes all of the lasers cut components, including the firewalls, hardware, pushrods, duct formers, landing gear, and wheels. With a wingspan of over 60 inches, this plane really carries itself well through the sky!

Although this aircraft is big, it is not a complicated build. It is cut out of eleven sheets of foam that fold and bend to creating an extremely rewarding build process. Producing this kit is a labor of love with almost an hour and a half of laser cutting time.

This aircraft has great flight characteristics in the wind and calm weather alike. When you put a 4 cell battery on this aircraft it is fully aerobatic and you get the perfect pairing of speed and efficiency. The flight characteristics of this A-10 are like none other on the market at this size. It performs like a real A-10 with vertical lines and incredible performance at both high and low speeds, and with the included landing gear set, you can easily land and take off of short grass.

The FT Warthog is a direct result of the Giant A-10 vs Tank episode! With such an incredible response to that project and particularly the aircraft build, Flite Test wanted to make it accessible while still maintaining a substantial size and presence in the air.  Although this is a smaller version of the giant A-10 featured in the video, it is definitely an advanced build, but once it is completed you will find that it has some trainer like tendencies.

Flite Test A-10 Warthog "Maker Foam" Electric Airplane Kit (1537mm)
Flite Test is very clever to craft planes from simple foamboard! I've built several of their kits, but this A-10 is quite challenging (though it went together pretty nicely). Having flown many 3D planes over the years, I feel that differential thrust isn't that good at emulating a rudder on this airframe. That said, the plane does fly well and looks good in a low pass - although the kit needs to have a provision for cooling air to flow through the fuselage: on landing, my 4S lipo was rather hot.

The plane kit seemed a good value; the Power Pack seemed a bit pricey.

The Guinea Pig is an easy to assemble interesting looking aircraft. The assembly video on U-tube is loaded with valuable information on just how to build this aircraft. I modified my model with flaps and 2- 70mm EDF units with appropriate electronics. With battery it weighs in at 8#. I painted it in WW II German camouflages and markings, ala: Indiana Jones. Haven't flown it yet but the predictions are it should be a real performer!!
