The legendary A-10 Thunderbolt II is also called the "Warthog" or "Tank Killer" thanks to its aggressive look. It is an American twin-engine, straight wing jet aicraft developed in the 1970s by Fairchild Republic. The A-10 is best known for its GAU-8 Avenger 30mm Gatling gun mounted on the nose which was designed to fire depleted uranium and high explosive flammable rounds. The aircraft is a low altitude and close air support aircraft which can loiter near battle areas for extended periods of time thanks to its excellent maneuverability at low air speeds.
Freewing's heavily upgraded RC replica of the A-10 does not fail to meet up to the standards of the legendary aircraft with its ultra-scale design including US Air Force graphics, hand-painted pilot, detailed cockpit, machine guns, bombs and drop tanks. Electronic retracts, 4S battery capability, high speed 2836-3500Kv motor which produces over 1700grams of thrust, metal gear servos, and twin 40A ESCs housed in a special compartment designed for effecitve cooling, all make up this upgraded model. Like the original aircraft from the 70s, this plane has amazing maneuvering capabilities, easy to control speed thanks to the twin EDfs and the wide wingspan, as well as incredible looks. As for the main wings, they are ready for flaps; all you have to do is add two 9g servos which will also help with shorter take off distances and slower speed landings.
