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, push rods, 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 labour 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.
