Before offering a Aerobatic Classics as an ARF kit, it was a long way to go.

First we have to tell the constructor and right owner about our new project and then put the old construction into a modern new CAD construction.

Important are the basic facts like interpretation and sizes of this planes have to be the same as to the original if something need to change we discuss with the old constructor.

The first prototype of the electric Arrow`ARF born and it`s fantastic to see this impressive world champion from 1979 and 1981 winning plane, again in the air.

Our test pilot Peter flew the plane excellent, thank you. The plane flies like a train and has impressive flying characteristics  and this with a flying weight including batteries of 7 pounds.

We have to make little changes for production, but mostly the plane is perfect.
