Mini A-6 Intruder EDF Fighter Jet EPO (PNF) (AUS Warehouse)
The A-6 Intruder was designed as an all weather ground attack aircraft and was the jet replacement for the legendary Douglas Skyraider, it has had a distinguished career, spanning 4 decades. This mini A-6 is Made from crash resiliant EPO foam it includeds 3 x 9g servos, 20A ESC and a mini yet mighty 50mm EDF fan unit and motor all pre-installed. All that is required to finish the model is your own transmitter/receiver (Tx/Rx), a 850mah 3s1p Lipo and around 45 minutes of build time.
In addition to my review, I've been running a 1000mAh 3s 20C. The plane stays 'just' above stall speed on full throttle turns and the battery and plug (I use a deans) is quite hot. I'd recommend a 30C battery to pump out the 15-16A that the motor draws with more ease.
Hi can anyone help me out, i got this plane, but the battery i bought which is a 800 mah 3s has a JST connector on it, and the plane has 2 ml gold connectors?, is there a connector that i can buy to connect it up to the battery? any help would be great thanks.
no worries mate, have fun flying!! handels a bit of wind but dosent like too much. its got a bit of speed but not as fast as some of the 50mm range. and as for cg, i just put a 1000mah 3 cell right up in front of nose and it flew fine! happydays.
Just purchased one of these from HK's **** store (delivered for $62.48). I love the Intruder and hope this does it justice. I've heard good things about this series. We'll soon see if they're true. I'll post a review when I put it in the air. Planning to use a 1000mAh 3s.
lobstermash thanks for that. So you got the wrong INFO to start with. I hate that. I wonder if we (When we give the wrong INFO) are at all libel. Anyway that. Also a far few Jets need to be thrown hard. A few use BUNGEE.
As mentioned in the discussion, I bought this from the HK ebay store. They took 5 days to post it from the Aus warehouse, which is considerably slower than my previous purchases...
I flew with a 1000mAh 20C 3s (Turnigy). At first I put it a little further back based on the reviews in the Int warehouse. This put it at the rear end of the servos. This was tail heavy and I suffered a stall and a split nose for my trust in those reviews...
After I glued that up, I took it out again with the battery all the way to the from, cg at 139mm from intake lip as specified in the manual. Perfect. A good, solid throw and the plane flew OK. A little sluggish. A gust of wind hit it after about 2 mins and it stalled in spite of full throttle. Into the nose again.
3rd flight, cg in same spot (and recharged battery) and some sanding of the outlet, it flew much nicer. It needs a lot of room to land and power all the way. Happy to have had a good flight with no stalling, but this is a tricky little plane. It doesn't like wind, takes a strong throw to launch and stalls easily, but it sounds and looks fantastic. Not overly fast, but not for the faint hearted.

suppose ill chuck a review up as ive had her for a while now with quite a few flights. great jet not as fast as some of the other 50mm range but still enough to keep u on your toes. ive flown in up to 20km winds and didnt get much wobble , over all its a nice jet to add to your hanger. recommended .

Remember, let the plane get faster before turning right/left www.link
