The HobbyKing® ™ Arrow is a high performance hybrid glider/pylon racer with distinctive F3A styling that offers high speed thrills for low speed money and amazingly for a composite high performance speed machine, it is Plug N Fly so all the hard work is done on this 4 channel model with ailerons, elevator, throttle and crow breaks for landing (recomended).
The airframe is composed of a good quality fiber glass fuselage AND wing, which is a removable 1pc item, only the horizontal stabilizer and elevator are balsa. The finish is quite superb and durable. There is no doubt, it looks fast, which is just as well, it IS fast! A model this quick needs to be well built and no corners have been cut, aileron's are "live" hinged, high torque 9g servo's have been pre-fitted with JR servo plugs throughout and all the included hardware is sturdy and good quality for reliability and performance including alloy horns.
The pre-fitted brushless inrunner motor has plenty of power and coupled with such a slippery air frame, huge grins are going to be the order of the day at your field. The prop is included as is the quality alloy spinner, so your radio, a lipoly and a couple of hours work at the most are all that stands between you and some high speed action. The HobbyKing® ™ Arrow racing glider offers an unbeatable combination of low price, quality, good looks, practicality, durability and of course awesome performance, it's a must for speed freaks!

My plane was well made , finish ok , but it can not fly well , the engine is too heavy and not folding propeller prevent the aircraft from taking speed. We must put an engine 100grs approx 1000kv or less well from when you loose to fly and then required a folding propeller . Now it flies well , much lighter with small batteries and small motor and goes very quickly with the folding propeller . But I had to pick up several times after crashes before the changes.
The small kinetic very well out of box, but this one, without changes sucks! It should be modified then have fun ..Well built , strong enough, but not very powerful and difficult to dispose of used motor ! The cover does not and when you throw it, it slips on the fuselage. Plane rather difficult to flythis plane is really made, well finished and quite solid. But it has two defects, a propeller too small with 4,75 x4, 75, there must be 5x5 or 6x4 because it has no original power, the engine roars but with this small propeller, it does not either falls violently to the ground. It is very difficult to start and if not power, it falls away! It is necessary to start the spring if you do not get to either run hand but with a larger prop, it is easier. Also, the elevator or stabilizer is imprecise, the strength in the plastic tube control. I put a carbon tube that slides right order. If you have a good level of control and you have mostly changed the propeller, revised stabilizer and placed before the battery too, then you will love it, but for a beginner, this plane requires a good experience, you going to crash now!
