Default E-flite UMX A-10 Warthog

This is my complete E-flite UMX A-10 Warthog unboxing & first three flights video on this Ultra Micro A-10 EDF Jet.

Complete Unboxing & Maiden Flights:

E-flite UMX A-10 RC Jet Review Notes:

Pros:
- Ugraded EDF Units from 28mm to 30mm
- 3S power handling
- This can take advantage of a number of the Smart features
- The landing gear has been improved
- Strengthened nose and other weak points have received upgrades

Cons:
- A magnet was missing from the fuse to hold on the canopy. Not cool and it caused my canopy to come off during a rough landing on the maiden flight.
- IC2 connector for many, but not those that are already emersed in the Smart Ecosystem.
- The recommended CG in the manual is not correct for mine, but I quickly found the sweet spot.

Default Cool down time?

Got one in the post and 3 batteries. How long should I let it cool down between flights?

Sorry for just seeing this now! I would say it depends on how hot it is outside. It shouldn't take more than a few minutes this time of year.

I hope that helps!
