Even radio-controlled model A-10s are indestructible

A crash-landing with just two of three wheels deployed? No problem for this Warthog and his “pilot.”

RC enthusiasts and fans of the A-10 will enjoy this.

At the Best In The West Jet Rally, a large gathering of radio-controlled model aircraft enthusiasts, last October in California, two model Warthogs were on display, complete with a pyrotechnics and a mobile tank “target” on the ground.

After several minutes in the air, one of the A-10s had trouble with its landing gear – only two wheels were able to deploy. Watch what happens and you’ll agree that even model Warthogs are indestructible.
