The Mini Arrow and Mini A Pack was my first Flite Test purchase and I was not disappointed. Like someone else said a three hour build time is about right if this is your first build, and this was my first build since I built an Eagle II in 1993. I was amazed at how well the Arrow flew right off the bat. My first flight ended in about three and a half minutes because of what I think was a brown out in my receiver. The Arrow broke cleanly and I was able to hot glue it back together. I took it out the next day and put four batteries through it with no issues.
I want to stress that the issues I had were with my radio equipment and NOT the Flite Test equipment witch was flawless! I have now purchased two more airplanes and a VersaCopter from the FT Store.
Thank you for all the customer support and helpful videos that you put out each week. Jason on 13th Feb 2017
First thing I found that I liked a lot was the simple build and the ease of working with the foam core material. I was able to build from start to finish in about 3 hours not including tuning and configuring the radio. Once the model was built I did not expect it to fly as great as it did. I opted for the 1806 motor since I had them laying around already. I also installed a runcam swift in the nose and a VTX in the wing. I flew it all weekend and was just left absolutely amazed how smooth it flys. Even throught the FPV goggles it was smooth as butter. It is pretty rugid little bird, I hit some scraggle branches on a tree and did not even crash, it just bounced off and kept flying. If you do damage it, fix it with hot glue and ductape your back in the air in minutes. I did total my model however flying into power lines at full speed and cut it clean in half right where the servo mounts in the wing. But hey its only 20 bucks, my wallet did not even feel that crash at all and since I did not have a bunch of time into it the crash was painless. The only thing that hurt was now I have to wait for a new kit from flite test. I will build another Arrow and am seriously looking at other flite test models as well. Unknown on 30th Jan 2017
Purchased the arrow with the f pack. This is my first fixed wing rc model. Also my first try at FPV. After 4.5 successful flights (first flight ended after 15 seconds by stuffing it into a tree). A couple of bruises, but the arrow was otherwise ok. This thing is tough! The next 4 flights were amazing! I'm absolutely in love with FPV. thanks to the flitetest crew for making a great product that makes getting into this aspect of the hobby an easy transition. Daniel Wittum on 16th Jan 2017
I have yet to fly it but me and my wife put each wing together, it was a fun little activity for us to do in a rainy day. we both cant wait to maiden it Daniel Pipitone on 18th Dec 2016
I was very impressed with the ease of the build and the thoughtfulness of the design. Me and my children are just getting started in the hobby. This kit was fun to build and learn with. A great way to have fun family time. Thank you Rick on 12th Dec 2016
The FT Mini Arrow was my first attempt at building a plane. Overall I really enjoyed the experience and will be building more I just wish I had the option of printing out or at least pull up detailed build plans and instructions. Ronn Radcliff on 17th Nov 2016
Haven't flown it yet but am anxious to. I mounted a 55mm ducted fan unit to it and am anxious to see how it fly's. So far the winds every day have been high teens to low twenty's. Since I'm getting back into the hobby after more than thirty years away I prefer to wait until I get a calm day. Should be soon though. Bob B. Virginia Beach, Va. on 12th Nov 2016
I bought my first arrow wing a couple of months ago and I liked it so much I bought a second one to take to Florida for the winter. I really like the long flight time with a 3s 800 battery.
Thank you Josh for a great design

I was really pleased with my FT Mini Arrow experience. My brothers and I flew U-C and RC with our dad back in the 1970's. Balsa and tissue were the medium of our dad's generation so we learned on those, but we experimented with things like hot melt glue, corrugated cardboard and the foam board available to us back then because of cost of balsa. It was a pleasure to work with nicely laser cut precision pieces that needed absolutely no trimming to fit properly. No detail was missed in making the Mini Arrow kit easy to build. And talk about price, what a bargain ! (My favorite innovation was the use of cable ties to support the control rods.) The Mini Arrow went together during my free time at work in a single day. I've also really enjoyed becoming re-immersed in RC based on electric motors & batteries that is free of oily cleanup. I liked it so much I went right out and bought the Vector.

We fly FPV combat and racing and this is a great wing for that purpose it's fast responsive and strong all the things you need for combat and racing. Fantastic price point and a super flyer. You can't go wrong with FliteTest!!!
Spend the 20 dollars and save the time, the laser cut foam is awesome, start racing quicker and buy a pair for a spare, hey that rhymes, your welcome to use that...
