The full kevlar fiber fuselage includes in-mold installed carbon/Airex bulkheads and landing gear structure, making it one of most refined and achieved JWM class airplane available in the world as a kit.
The scale of this airplane is 1/5.8, the airplane has a wingspan of 300 cm, weighs 25kg kg and is powered by two T 180 thrust jet engines.The ultra-realistic model features nearly exact maintenance panels and even has a frightenly accurate 30mm gun.
The wings are similarly built from an Airex/kevlar fiber sandwich skin with carbon fiber/ airex, carbon fiber/ plywood ribs and specifically designed carbon fiber spar.In addition the A-10 uses the newest locked-rotor mode E-retract system coupled with FMS’s refined and oriented CNC-processed metal landing gear set for assistance with those not-so-perfect landings./Essential RC
