Title: Amazing A10 RC Model vs the Real Thing Here's the 1:5 scale A-10
Post by: SAS73 on April 29, 2008, 12:30:43 PM
Here's the 1:5 scale A-10 Warthog remote control model in some video action at Top Gun 2008, in Lakeland, FL.—the biggest remote controlled airplane competition in the world. And to match it, a real A-10 appeared in the scene, taking off from a parallel runway. We interviewed Mike Selby, one of the model creators, and got all the technical details about this amazing $12,000 beast, with two jet turbines, three on-board microprocessors, 24 servos, a 1" OLED display in its cockpit and a fully-functional gatling gun. Jump to see all its amazing details in a 26 photo gallery. [Video and images courtesy of Bob Parrish]
