Flies well, but poor battery compatibility

It flies like its on rails, a truly awesome fpv machine. One serious flaw is the width of the fuselage. I'm having a hard time fitting turnigy batteries into the middle hatch. Beware anyone who thought about putting in a 1300mah 3s, it won't work. Even a 1000mah 3s would be tight.

Great for taking it easy or snappy aerobatics.

The FT Mini Arrow is my second foamboard build and my first build that I've waterproofed and painted (My FT Tiny Trainer delaminated after I flew in the fog). To say I'm a complete novice is a bit extreme since I've spent time on RC sims and briefly flew RC years ago, but I'm certainly no expert. That being said, the Mini Arrow has been an absolute joy to fly and has provided me with an easy and affordable way to get into the hobby with minimal expense or expertise. The design is simple, straightforward, and easy to build, and the electronics are a cinch to install. For my first few flights I kept my throws very low and stuck to simple maneuvers while focusing on getting the Arrow trimmed properly (My elevons had too shallow of an angle after construction). Once it was trimmed and the CG was set properly, the Arrow flew like a dream. Easily soars in circles and tracks very well through the air. With a little confidence I set the throws higher and found that it can pull tight turns, loops, and barrel rolls just as easily. The lack of yaw also means that it is extremely easy to pick up and fly (left hand fan focus solely on throttle) and only requires two servos to build. The only issue I've had with the design is that it's very hard to tell the orientation of the wing when flying LOS. To remedy this, I put the free FT stickers I received on the top surface of the wing so that I can easily distinguish the top and bottom surface of the plane. Final thoughts: I wouldn't recommend this as a beginner's *first* aircraft simply because it requires a bit more finesse and skill to pilot effectively due to the atypical design and lack of dihedral, but if you've already had some practice flying, I'd say go for it! The Mini Arrow gives you the freedom to take it easy at first and quickly transition into practicing more complex aerobatics like rolls, loops, and inverted flight.
