The AVRO CF105 Arrow had all the right ingredients to become one of the most outstanding all weather interceptors of the Cold War. The Arrow was designed by AVRO Canada, to counter the threat of fast Soviet Nuclear bombers attacking the West via Canadian Airspace, however, based on an over-confidence at the time in surface-to-air missiles, this amazing aircraft was cancelled and despite impressive test results, never saw active service.
This quality and quite amazing looking 70mm ARF scale jet has a pre-painted fuselage and pre-covered foam core-balsa sheeted wing. The CF105 has a generous size delta wing combined with an ultra sleek profile, giving both speed and excellent slow fly ability. A 70mm fan unit is included, as is all hardware, including fixed under-carriage, or if you wish, the model is retract ready to accept a set of electric retract units (not included).

* ATTENTION ALL MODELERS*
Some say it can't be flown, some say this model is an urban legend and doesn't really exist, and some say it comes to life at night and bullies the other planes in your hanger!
In a first for HobbyKing we are throwing down the gauntlet with this model.
The first person to purchase this model from HobbyKing and record a successful flight video including a take off, 3 minute flight and a landing then post the video in the discussion area below this product listing will receive a store credit for the value of this model, so let the building begin!
*********** UPDATE **********
Congratulations to the winner of the Avro Arrow challenge! Check out the video in the video section below!
Well packed (double) no manual fibre glass and Hatch, dorsel fin,edf cover all have to be sanded to fit so no problem there well worth the moneyNot quite up to Hobyking standards f irst of all when getting out of the box looks good. Then comes the bad bits no instructions . comes with fixed undercarriage but you have to geuss how to fit them. Wont survive a heavy landing would be better with a set of retracts instead of the fixed.
wing servos are hard to fit no covers
they just hang there I used double sided tape to fit them.
will have to see how it flies and Lands.
could be improved with a little thought
retract under cart decent instructions and wing servo fittings. Not as good as the last two aircraft I have bought.
I will give it 7 out of ten.I like the look of the plane and is going to be a challange to get it in the air, one thing do not try using the turnigy" A" landing gear as the legs are to long and you cannot remove the set screws as it seems they were glued in. Already broke one allen wrench. But overall I do like the jet and will be using a different fan though.It is a lead sled! It is to small to be made out of fiberglass... make it out of foam and it will fly well or make a bigger version....I just got my Arrow kit and it is beautiful, however there seem to be no instructions at all on how to assemble. Am I missing something or am I left to figure it all out for myself. IE: are the wings attached permanently or are they meant to be removable, Can anyone help me with this?The manual says that the c.g location is 9 inches from the wing l/e or the centre of the fan hatch .This appears to be too far aft as most deltas have the c.g at 1/3 of the chord . Not having flown it yet i would appreciate any experience from readers .This plane is amazing. All parts are well painted including all decals. All mayor parts to mount an 70mm EDF are pre installed. The finish of the surface is very good. This is the best value for your money.
But I belive if you want real fun with this EDF jet you need 6s power because of 1,9 kg flying weight. ;-)Nice detail in the model, intake ducts need to inspected to make sure everything lines up properly, I'm changing the duct fan to the alloy edf 72mm duct fan, for more power.
