I scratch built mine, however, it's built up from 8 easy pieces.
Yes folks, single digit parts count.
You can have a squadron of these things built in an afternoon.
In flight, I really really like this design. Along side the Tek Sumo, I like the arrow a little better.
It seems to deal with wind and turbulence with more dignity and does not exhibit the tip stalling tendency I find in the Tek.
Initial trim is a little hairy, just as it is with most flying wings. when you forge through this process you are left with a plane that flys much better than it has a right to.
it is fast, and nimble, yet remarkably stable and predictable. I mowed the field with it inverted, flipped it right side up, bounced it off the deck and did a few more laps before floating her in for a landing. Then I explained the fearlessness to another flyer ... that its $4 worth of materials and little assembly time.
Buy a squadron of these things. They really designed a winner here

This speed build kit is very easy to complete, perhaps to beginners too! However, I was not able to get mine to fly. :( Patrick on 31st Jul 2016
Quick and easy build. Jeff Bezusko on 25th Jun 2016
Heaps of fun to fly, with the race setup it's amazingly fast and agile but will happily putt along at 1/4 throttle for a more relaxing experience. Move the CG back a touch and cut the throttle completely and it even glides reasonably well. As with the Versa, plenty of scope for modifications and improvements. Easy yet satisfying build.
Space can be a little tight in this design, use those wing pockets and keep your power pod neat! Jugsy on 19th Jun 2016
Great customer service, fast shipping! I really enjoyed the videos on building and instruction for beginners like myself. I ordered the mini arrow and a 2204 motor it was well made. I have had no problems. Perfect for anyone who wants to build a solid foundation on principles and dynamics of the airframe as well as electronics. I recommend this to all. James on 7th Jun 2016
Fast, stable and fun to fly. Make sure your CG is right and use the elevon setup gauge in the plans/kit. Some things I changed..
-Larger E-max 8.5g servos (Stronger if going 80mph+ or if you just like big throws!)
-Carbon fiber rod across wing
-Paint stick from front to back
-Naca duct to ventelate ESC
I dont have any fpv gear and found it could take a lot more weight! The plane was a bit tail heavy to start and decided to try my larger 1300 mah batteries. This made it easier to balance, increased flight times and increased stability in high wind.

All I can say is WOW. I have built and flown over a dozen oF FT planes...this Arrow and the Versa wings have become my favorites. I used the F pack and this this is amazing. Excellent for FPV or line of sight. Jack on 16th May 2016
Great for FPV, I put the "A power pack" on it.. and it works great with just a Fatshark CMOS camera and 200mw transmitter a little on the slow side but still a lot of fun for fpv I love how it holds a banked turn.... going to build another with a 2204 motor so and can add my runcam2 and capture some video...

Amazing Kit! I'm a first time RC hobby guy and this kit was a snap to put together.
Thanks to the video Josh Bixler put together. You guys rocked this kit out. I love the way everything just pops out and snaps together. Now I just need to get my power pack :)
Thanks Flite Test Chris Basinais on 6th May 2016
I watch a lot of the videos and read the forums from how to's to reviews. These guys are great and a lot of thought goes into to developing their products. This is my first "airplane" and it couldn't be any simpler, especially with the videos. I have not maidened my aircraft yet and plan on using it for fpv. Keep up the great work guys and as always, fly safe and have fun. Thanks. Gary on 3rd May 2016
