JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING!
Needed to complete:
The Canterbury Sailplanes Arrow is a delight to fly, handling is safe and predictable for beginners, yet can be fast with a high roll rate for experienced fliers. And best of all, it looks great!
The Arrow is fully aerobatic and is suitable for dynamic soaring as well.
On conventional flying wings, the servos, receiver and battery all have to fit into the wing. This usually means you have to use a flat battery pack and need to position all the components in the thicker section of the wing, which limits how you can arrange things.
With the Arrow, all the radio gear is positioned in the fuselage and there’s plenty of room for the standard square battery pack. This speeds up the building process and it keeps all the gear central, which has advantages in reducing outboard weight in the wings and providing better survivability in a crash.
The Arrow's wings and fuselage are EPP, tail is Coroplast and the elevons balsa. All the EPP parts are accurately manufactured using computer controlled cutting machines to produce a very accurate and smooth finish. Most of the difficult construction work is done for you; mounting holes are precut in the fuselage for servos, receiver and battery. Tail is die cut.
The kit includes just about all the parts you need to complete the model, just a few basic tools are need to build and fly.
