The Arrow 2 is the perfect follow on model from a high wing trainer, ideal for novice RC pilots wanting to explore aerobatics or experienced RC pilots looking for a solid, dependable real world sport plane, the Arrow 2 is also one of those great models that can handle real world conditions and real world club airfields with ease, it is the perfect "club field" size model.
With the Arrow Tiger, the emphasis is very much on speed & aerobatics, with the Arrow 2 the emphasis is on predictable flight characteristics and aerobatics, what they both have in common is versatility, practicality and durability. The supplied hardware is nice quality and comprehensive, it includes heavy duty alloy horns & clevis, alloy wheels with rubber tyres, alloy spinner, fuel tank/engine mount, EP motor mount, etc. With "real world" sport models, practicality is of course important, the Arrow 2 features a 2pc plug in wing for easy transportation and field assembly, an easy access battery hatch and of course a robust steerable tail wheel.
As well as being practical and robust, it is also important of course that sport models are fun and the Arrow 2 certainly ticks the fun box! Good aerobatic performance & solid, predictable flight characteristics is what good sport/low wing trainers are all about, the Arrow 2 offers a wide flight envelope suiting novice and experienced pilots alike, it is no wonder that so many club pilots go back to low wing sport models year in, year out, when it comes to bang for buck, nothing matches a good all-round sport model!

Great value for money. They don't come much cheaper that this. Good quality hardware included.
Fitted it out electric with an Easy Match G46. A slightly heavier motor won't hurt as I had to mount it as far forward as possible and I use a 4s 4000mah Zippy pack with it. It is a real floater when it comes time to land with that very thick wing chord. Very strong as I found out with a hard landing which bent the aluminum tube wing joiner resulting in considerable dihedral. Just a bent tube - easily straightened and one cracked wing root rib needed gluing where one bolt was torn out. Landing gear wire is reasonably soft and that absorbed most of the impact.
Thinking of getting another for when my ASP46 no longer has something to pull. I have already got the other Arrow with the tapered wing sitting in a box awaiting assembly. Similar quality.An amazing plane for the price. Flys perfect with the hands off. Using as my step up from a high wing trainer.Good looking plane and it's stable in flight as you might expect from a trainer. Stick a 52 on it and it will be a good acrobatic performer. the packaging is great and came without any damage at allno comprem esta merda, muito bonito, estilo legal, mas mal embalado chegou com a asa quebrada, profundor quebrado. sorte que sempre constru meus modelos, consegui conserta-lo. quanto tempo levaria pra eu devolver e pedir outro. e provar que foi problema de transporte. pois a caixa estava intacta. mas veio s embalada com um papel pardo essa era a proteo. hk nunca mais compro modelos. comprem greatplanes.Havnt flew it yet, however its all built, and the quality is excellent for the price. No damage to New Zealand, and none of the control surfaces needed tweaking, they were all free and true. Great covering. Looking forward (scared) to getting it in the air.
