The A380 is the largest EPO model you will ever see and with a wingspan of 1520mm andfour 56mm ducted fans, it's sure to make an impression at any airfield!
Despite it's size, the A380 is very light and economical to fly, only requiring a 3,000mAh 3S battery. This hugeA380(EPO)model aircraft comes95% pre-built andincludes apowerful 4 x 25A brushlessEDF system and steerable nose wheel, just include your own Tx/Rx and battery.
Coming back to the burned motor controlers directly after battery connection. Polarity was o.k. and 3S battery was also o.k.
The reason was: Poor construction of the motor control electronics. I bought good quality 30 Ampere Hype BL Alpha pro controler and all was o.k.
Hi. Short grass takeoff is nearly impossible due to the small wheels. I hsve already tried and it won't accelerate enough. Bitumen strip is the best. Adding lights should not affect your flight duration very much. Flies like a big trainer but you will have to modify your landing technique too come in similar to a full size airliner, ie: with a slight nose up attitude as you reach the final approach and flair over the threshold. Other than that your 7 years of flying models with granddad should see you flying this Ok. Regards Lee.
Taking note of the 4 edf units and the weight of the aircraft It goes quite fast, and depending on your skill level it could be very difficult to control, the ailerons are very small and it has no rudder so crosswind scenarios could be very tricky. As far as grass goes I would say no, not only are the tires too small but the under mounted motors are very susceptible to ingesting small rocks and other debris. But if you think you might want this plane as you expand your knowledge I'd say buy it, I would suggest a buddy box with a experienced RC pilot though.
I don't understand the shipping rules. This item can not be shipped to the Netherlands according to this website, even if weight and sizes are within the limits given. #fail
Please ship from Europe! Special when produced in Europe!
Only from the International warehouse. Add it to your cart, and you'll find the shipping cost. You may need to start the checkout procedure, but as long as you don't commit to purchase it, you can go back and delete it from your cart if you like.
for A380, which kind of transmitter and battery do you suggest? How much do they cost? Is there a kit that includes those elements? In that case, how much does the kit cost?
Dou you send my package to Miami? Extra cost? Thanks a lot.
It looks like it's only in the HK main warehouse (Hong Kong) and the USA plus there Australian warehouses,but i'm sure we will get it in the European and UK warehouse at some point,but you could always go into Support at the top of the page not CS and then submit a request for it in your local warehouse,use the drop down box and enter suggestion/Feedback and type in your request,job done.
If you are in a country that have hobby king warehouse it will be shipped to you from the warehouse that located in your country.If not all the thing comes from Hobby king main warehouse. I means China
hi guys.i want to buy an rc plane which has "enough" space inside so i can add my electronic boards and batteries for them..i want also to carry ~1.5kg extra weight(this is the weight of batteries and the boards).. which has MORE space inside the body of the plane c17,a380 or a320? I think this plane has bigger body..not longer..but bigger diameter(or bigger radius) of the body circle.. thank you
I take it you can't take of and land on grass with this plane, is this correct?
On payvement or cement, who long a runway do you need for take offs and landing?
Any information is greatly appreciated.
Has anyone fly this plane with 3S 5000 mAH Lipo? I find that turnigy nanotech 3S 5000 mAH fits perfectly in the battery compartment. Does it effect the CG (where is the CG anyway as it is not mentioned in the manual). Cheers
I take a chance and fly it two weeks in a row using Nanotech 3S 5000mAH 45C and it flies great. It needs approx 30 feet of solid runway and it flies like a real plane. No issue with CG at all with this larger battery. My setup is using 4pcs Turnigy EDF out runner brushless motor 2615 4800kv, change the fan using the original GWS 55mm fan, 4pcs 40A ESC. At full throttle this setup draws over 1,100 Watts at around 98A of current combined. The flight time is around 3:30 min, using around 40-50% throttle. There is no need to fly it at full throttle as the speed does not differ that much, you will only damage the battery. Cheers
Assembly the plane is pretty straight forward. You can follow my setup: 4pcs GWS 55mm fan (sold here) to replace the ****py fans that come with the kit, 4pcs Turnigy EDF out runner motor 2615 4800kv, 4pcs 40A Hobbyking ESC. Setup this plane using regular setup (both ailerons in ch1 and both elevators in ch2, no need for vtail setup). Set it to max throws on both ailerons and elevators. You need to buy a reverse servo for one of the elevator because this is twin elevator set up so both servo will move at the same direction. Happy flying
Really large packet, but no damages. Nice finnish. Wheels are scale size so too small for grass fields. See further review and comments on Community pages www.link . Notice there is no rudder, requires V-tail mixing or modification to make working rudder.
