...Arrow only electric - not for me, in this case. What a shame.

Agreed. Some things are just wrong. ;-)

Or stated another way... Just because you can, doesn't meant that you should.

Nice - this looks to be made for Nitro power, isn´t it?
Is a special type retracts planned?

So what does a US Rep do? Exactly? And you want us to order from China and foot the $80 shipping cost on a plane that will not be available until February, Yet you did not express what the cost of the plane is.

So what do you do?

What are the differences in the glow and electric versions, and has the glow version been flown? If so, what engine was used? Also, have the recommended electric retracts been tested with the glow engine? Thanks.

Victor, thanks for the pictures but have you ever run such a motor ? or your fellows in china maybe ? this engine will tear your balsa chinese plywood fueselage into thnds pieces. and why do you have all these holes in the fueselage ? this looks like a 38” 3S piper cup , but not like a true pattern shipt to me . just my two cents.

Victor,

thanks for the additional pictures of the glow version. I think we'll likely have to wait until a production kit is available to fully understand how it comes together.

Without wanting to jump the gun, my first impression is that a little more consideration might have to go into the redesign to make it suitable for a powerful RE two stroke such as the venerable OPS of which SA is now a dealer. The space allowances for both the piped exhaust and fuel tank seem a little restricted. Then again, the airframe looks like one which might come in at an AUW in the 6-7 lbs ballpark. For such an airframe a lighter less potent engine such as an OS 55AX would likely be fine much like how this engine is recommended for the ARF Curare also produced out of Europe.

In any case, I look forward to seeing them in production and getting feedback from other pilots.

David

Victor, any updates on the Arrow flown with a glow engine? I am interested in one (and one Banshee), but would like to see if someone has tried it yet. The fuse does look a little weak for a strong 60 glow.

From the info I received from Skyaviation, the Chinese new year is now over and they have started working on the updated Glow version. They did not like the sample fuse they received and have asked the factory to add more strength to the fuse on the glow version and will need to OK the updated version before they produce them. To me it looks like they are making sure the Glow fuselage will be plenty strong for the glow engines.

Maybe blasphemy, but I might get two of them Arrows. One electric and one for my Jett 90 RE or my Picco 80RE. So that glow version fuse must be pretty darn strong!

Anybody here has actually got one, even if electric?

We've been hearing about these planes for 9 months now. Has anyone actually received one?

I have tried several times to get the actual price (for either electric or glow) and availability, with no success. Went ahead and ordered a couple of Curares from Shweighofer. They charged less than $40 for shipping of both!
Now let's see when they actually arrive.

Too bad the arrows are more a myth than reality.

Thanks Dieter, there is a lot of interest in both versions of the Arrow but no one has answered any of the questions that have been asked. Looking forward to the update on the Glow fuse and when the planes will be shipped.

Well tomorrow came and went and no new information. I think everyone should go back and read the first post very carefully and take note of how wrong it sounds.

This guy got his arrow and he was going to start putting it together. So it's been 9 months and no picture of his Arrow.

But he has asked twice now for pre-orders at a discount.

We want tolet you know in this forum: We decided to enhance the structural design and theproduction process of this classic ARF.
Many thanks to all who are interested in theproject.Such kind of an ARF project isnot an easy one - and needs its time.
The electric prototype had been test-flownsuccessfully, but we had our factory build also the glow version prototypebefore we would commission a production run - fortunately.Three weeks ago we finally got the glowfuselage. Checking it revealed some problems in accomplishing both an electricand a glow version – as I said: it's not easy.
We wanted the same fuselage design for bothversions, only the turtledecks may be different.But the glow version needs a much more ruggedfuselage than the electric version. Another problem is how to design thefuselage nose so it can accommodate different glow engines and electric motorsalike.
A fixed turtledeck is a less than perfectsolution since it should be easily detachable at the field. The existing designwas not good enough in our eyes, as was the whole fuselage structure which wasnot as rugged as needed for the glow version. Besides, the exhaust blowing overthe Ultracote covering would make the fuselage look awful after a few flights.
After a lot of pondering and discussing we nowdecided for a fiberglass fuselage.Todaywe finished the CAD design and next week we will mill the plug.
The built-up wings and tails from our"wood factory" are no problem, their quality is excellent. Coveredwith Ultracote (German: Oracover), the wing halves and tail feathers are justabout perfect.
Fuselage production will begin soon. It willbe a convenient ARF fuselage, ready for easy R/C and drive installation.
As an accessory we can offer a 3D-printeddummy Webra 61 Racing. Our ‘Made in Italy’ wing bags are just finished.
The projectis making good progress. Have a look at the pictures at our website. Wewill update it soon.




@Countilaw:We introduced the project nine months ago, that is correct – but we acceptedfirst orders only late November / early December 2016. And we announced thatthe plane would be finished not before March. That didn't work out due to theproblems mentioned above, but I believe it will take only a few more weeks toget the ARF ready.
