The Flite Test A-10 Warthog is one of the largest and most complete Flite Test kits available. 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.

The craft itself is wonderful to build and to fly, only once you work the kinks out of it. Such problems forced me to give this aircraft kit less than 5 stars:
1. Two of the 11 foam laser cut sheets were burned and cut all the way through. Lots of tape was needed to remedy the parts that had holes. Minus one star for poor quality control.
2. The kit did not take into account that the non-Flite test motors are reversed and then mounted, leaving the back end propeller shaft jabbing into the wheels. My own improvements helped remedy the problem, as opposed to damaging the motors and the wheels. Minus 1 star for the kit being prematurely released without the correct power pack being sold. If you can remove the keyed shaft at the “back” end of the motors, please disregard this comment.

Other than that, the kit is worth nearly every dollar. If you want to purchase this kit and use full rudder controls and not the standard differential thrust, purchase some y-leads (one or two) for connecting the motors and the ailerons in parallel instead of programming each motor individually. Don’t be afraid to improvise on these foam craft. Happy flying.

My second FT build. Overall the build went well. There was a lot of wrinkles on the nose section which was in the middle of the bundle. Not sure how the surrounding pieces were not wrinkled? Also, nothing in the build vid about the tricycle landing gear. I don't want to risk breaking props every time I land. I'm using the new ft radial motors with the ft 35A escs. They are really tiny, I hope they can handle the heat. I would have liked if the premium power packs were out already because I purchased mine separately. Anyways, I'm gonna be flying a 4s 5100 from rmrc that usually is in my stratosurfer. It balances out well so it should be a fun time.
