The Best Handling, High-performance “Hog”
Delivering high performance with easy handling, the original E-flite® A-10 Thunderbolt II Twin 64mm EDF was the perfect first larger twin-powered jet model for a wide range of pilots. This updated and upgraded version has all of the same great features plus the benefits of exclusive Spektrum™ Smart technology! Its twin 11-blade 64mm fans, high-RPM brushless motors and 40-amp Spektrum™ Avian™ Dual Smart ESC combine with your 6S 3200-4000mAh 30+C LiPo battery to deliver nearly unlimited vertical performance, level flight top speeds up to 110+ MPH and virtually instantaneous throttle response. The Smart ESC also provides real-time power system related elemetry data while you fly including battery voltage and more – with Smart and non-Smart batteries – via compatible receivers (including the AR637TA in the BNF® Basic version) and Spektrum AirWare™ equipped transmitters. With a 7+ channel transmitter, it also offers optional-use thrust reversing to shorten rollout after landing and provide other special ground handling capabilities. Nine factory-installed digital servos, including a metal-geared nose wheel steering servo, supply precise and reliable control. Functional features include LED navigation lights, operational flaps, twin rudders and electric retracts with shock-absorbing struts so you can fly from a variety of paved, packed dirt or manicured grass surfaces. It arrives factory-finished in the rare “Flipper” three-tone gray camouflage trim scheme with removable ordnance, molded-in panel lines, a cockpit with pilot figure and more contributing to the incredible scale looks. It all adds up to deliver a “Hog” that’s sized for easy storage and transport while also offering an unmatched flying experience you’ll enjoy flight after flight!

This high-performance A-10 Thunderbolt II model is equipped with both exclusive Spektrum™ AS3X® and SAFE® Select technologies. AS3X works behind the scenes to smooth out the effects of wind and turbulence to deliver a locked-in feel that makes it seem like you’re flying a much larger airplane. Optional-use SAFE Select offers pitch and bank angle limits along with automatic self-leveling that can be turned on and off at the flip of a switch, making this the easiest to fly A-10 yet! And if you don’t want to enable the SAFE Select features, simply bind the receiver normally and only AS3X will be active.
The A-10 64mm is equipped with an exclusive Spektrum™ Avian™ Dual Smart ESC that can provide a variety of real-time power system related telemetry data while you fly including battery voltage and more – with Smart and non-Smart batteries – via compatible receivers (including the AR637TA) and Spektrum AirWare™ equipped transmitters (including the DX6e and 8e, DX6 G2/3 and 8 G2, the DX9, NX6, 8 and 10, iX12, iX20 and others) while you fly. Plus, optional-use thrust reversing can help shorten rollout after landing and offers other special ground handling capabilities (7+ channel transmitter required for reversing).
The twin 11-blade 64mm fans, high-RPM brushless motors and dual 40-amp Smart ESC combine with your 6S 3200–4000mAh 30+C LiPo battery to deliver nearly unlimited vertical performance and a fantastic speed range – including level flight top speeds up to 110+ MPH – with virtually instantaneous throttle response. This power system also delivers better performance and longer flight times than the 4S-compatible power systems used in similar class models.
The A-10 Twin 64mm EDF features an accurate outline and an abundance of scale details including molded-in panel lines and hatches, gun detail, and removable ordnance – more details than you typically find on similar class and smaller models.
Factory-installed LED navigation lights, operational flaps and twin rudders are functional features that take your experience to another level.
The factory-installed electric retracts are equipped with durable metal components including shock-absorbing struts that make it possible to fly from a wider variety of surfaces including paved runways and even manicured grass.
Construction with fully-molded EPO material makes it possible to replicate complex detail and shapes in a lightweight yet durable form. The result is an outstanding scale appearance that’s easy to maintain and delivers the best possible flight experience, plus the factory-installed servos with ball-link equipped linkages deliver crisp and precise control at every speed.
The one-piece, composite-reinforced wing is easy to install and remove for storage and transport thanks to the innovative hands-free connection system. And the convenient top-mounted hatch makes it quick and easy to install and remove batteries.
Unique Trim Scheme
The factory-applied paint and decal finish is inspired by the rare “Flipper” three-tone gray camouflage that was used on some A-10 aircraft in the early 90’s and makes for a model you’ll be proud to show off everywhere you go.
Already own a Spektrum™ transmitter? Bind-N-Fly (BNF) aircraft make getting into the air quickly and with the best control experience possible easier than ever. They come out of the box with the power system, servos and a Spektrum 2.4GHz receiver installed so all you need to do is bind the receiver to a compatible transmitter, finish any final assembly, and fly!
This Bind-N-Fly Basic model is equipped with a Spektrum 2.4GHz DSMX® receiver featuring AS3X (Artificial Stabilization–3-aXis) technology that works behind the scenes to smooth out the effects of wind and turbulence. The result is a heightened sense of stability and precision that makes you feel like you’re flying a much larger, expertly tuned aircraft.
If this is your first model of its type, or you want an extra margin of safety while familiarizing yourself with the airplane, you can enable the optional-use SAFE® Select flight envelope protection technology built into the receiver. No programming is required. Simply change up the binding sequence as directed in the manual.
With SAFE Select enabled, you get:
Pitch and Bank Angle Limits
- These envelope limits keep the airplane from rolling or pitching upside down. They also prevent excessive climb or dive angles.
- The airplane instantly returns to and holds level flight when the sticks are released and in the center position. It’s also helpful for keeping the wings level during takeoffs/launches and landings.
Easy Switch Assignment—No Complex Programming Required
- The simple procedure for assigning a transmitter switch to turn SAFE Select features on and off doesn’t require any complex programming and takes just a few seconds.
If you don’t want to enable the SAFE Select features, just bind the receiver normally and it will function like a standard AS3X receiver.
