3D model description

A-10 Thunderbolt II
Early release as per request by the community.

I have maiden it once and crashed due to stalling out. It did fly decently for a maiden but I have not gotten the chance to test again. Did some redesign to increase reparability and remove pitch down effect when throttling up.
Due to weather, job schedule and upcoming baby no 2, I will not get the chance to verify the latest design. I have built it but not verified it, hence the pre-verification discount. This will be removed when either I get the chance to verify it or enough people from the community have.

First flight with crash landing here:

Build video:

Dual 70mm 6S setup (80mm upgrade is under construction, but not sure when)
Wingspan: 1450mm
Weight PLA+ w/5000mah battery:
CG: 1/3 from the wing root. Better tuned CG will be released as the model gets tested more.
Minimum printer volume: 210x210x200

This has only been printed in PLA+ so far but my next one will be LW-PLA-HT. Most of the model has 5 mm thick wall and should be decent to print with LW PLA with around 5% infill. The model has a lot of slots for 8mm carbon tubes, to be able to support if printed with LW-PLA. This has not been tested yet.

I am working on printable landing gear but not done with that yet.

This is a complex plane to print and build. This should not be your first RC plane both to build and to fly. If used for tabletop display only, then it's not so hard. A good tuned printer and good bed adhesion is recommended. Some afterwork on a few of the printed parts are necessary. Most parts are printed with 1 perimeter but see the print instruction for details for each part. This guide is not complete yet but it is a work in progress.
Large STL files due to some complex form and high resolution.

If you have any questions, just ask and I will try my best to help.

I hope that people will make upgrades and mods to this model. I will support that as much as I can.
