Congratulations on the build. It’s amazing and looks just like the real deal, I was employed by Republic Aviation Corp. that mfg’’d the A-10 back in the 1970-1980 period. It became the Star of desert storm. I am looking forward to seeing more of team efforts. Thanks Paws

The final glide in had the flight characteristics very similar to an A-10 with both engines out. Very cool. Re-balancing for the weaponry will be interesting.

VERY NICE !!! Looks like it could use a little more thrust though, it wouldn't get away from the explody tanks fast enough right now.....one ground attack run and the pilot is toast along with the bad guy.....more a Tank Marshmallow than a Tank Buster at this moment......but I still want it....makes my little twin 45mm EDF one seems pointless.

Guys, this was fantastic. The A-10 is such an excellent example of form following function, and its function is so good. It was great to watch and see achieved. Thank you. (Just one thing for the cameraman: when someone is doing something, show the something. We can still hear him talk without seeing his face. Show what he's doing or referring to. Please.)

Andres: You are the hero. Nobody else matters here. Don't waste your time with you-tubers anymore. And if you ever want a 30cc (aprox.) gas engine that makes up to 7hp on gas, with an rpm range of 8,000rpm to 21,000rpm, (can customize) for your young projects, I am the owner of Earthsurferproducts.com, (one of the best performance small 2-stroke engine builders in the world), and can fill that void for you.

Bixler is awesome. I've built many foamies from Flightest. A $10 motor, $12 controller, two or four $5 servo's, a $30 receiver, an 89 cent prop, $1 piano wire, $2 in foam, $4 gorilla glue, and a $100 radio and you are in the air with a mini you don't have to register, can be flown in nearly any local park, and you can crash- repair for pennies- and crash again. After a while you will need to rebuild with a new $1 piece of foam. It's a great hobby for all ages. There is a lot children can learn, it's inexpensive and, as you can see, it's easy to get hooked.

Do use have a site that can go to, So can purchase full size plans to build from not card board mind you from balsa, but this is cool though, But been having a hard time to get any plans up to Canada like this warthog would be an awesome build, I did get P-51 plans but they were terminable looked like it was done in a coloring book, but a friend of mine was awesome enough to be able to convert P-51 full size buildable plans but he since past away, now I do not have a great designer and cad or whatever other programs he would use to design great builds onto full size building plans, So if use could help me out that would be great and what use do is just totally great as well thumbs up, Bear.

VERY NICE Build! One of my favorite aircraft of all time. Out of curiosity: IF you put FOUR ducted fans (2 above and 2 below fuselage) on it could you possibly fly it with just differential thrust control? (no control surfaces?). I know it, wouldnt look like an A-10 anymore.

He made a good choice in 2 way. First, the A-10 is a killer looking fighter and Second, the plane was designed for low speed maneuverability, perfect for ducted fans. Watched a couple other vids of yours and I subscribed. Great job. I do have to ask, where's the link to the build prints?

It's funny how many people are in the comments whining about rights and the evil government. Guess what.. every time something get's banned or heavily regulated it's YOUR fault. People like you don't understand responsibility and the fact that just because you can do something, doesn't mean you should. You're so narcissistic and self-serving that you never consider anyone else, and then can't understand why your hobby is being taken away. You want to talk about rights? Your rights end where mine begin, and irresponsible use of drones and R/C aircraft are an infringement of OTHERS rights. If you weren't so busy crying about your own rights, you'd understand that you aren't the only one that has them.
