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!

Really great plane for the price... full balsa construction, can't beat it, even if it is a bit poorly designed in places. For example, the undercarriage is supported by a single 2mm balsa wing rib which also has a large circle cut out of it which basically just smashes the first time the plane takes a hard landing. This needs to be reinforced with a shaped plywood rib and the undercarriage re-installed.Flies very well. Smart aerobatics. Glides well. no problem for no motor landings.
I buy a second one due to a crash.
Beware (replace) of the aluminium blue pieces : i lost the rod connection to the elevator because the aluminium became loose due to the gasser vibrations !A very good box from VMAR models,btfull finish,aluminium anodized parts.a very ARF plane .This is the old Vmar from early 2000. My friend had one back then and they flew great....later ones were never as good. On instruction Manuel it is dated 2001, this is the old kit and this is the best flying one. Looks great went together easy and flies beautifully love itGreat looking plane nicely finished if your into these type of planes this is the one i have been scratch building planes for over 35 years i wish this was out when i first started would have saved alot of hart ache and money
