Oops ....... I've did it again ....... The Arrows 1800mm Husky


Recommended Posts

As the title suggests ..... more retail therapy 

 

This time in the form of the Arrows Husky 1800mm wingspan 6S version.

 

Another nice big floaty foamie to add to the fleet to give me some choice until some of my other slightly more complicated balsa and IC come of age along with my experience.

 

Not a lot different from my current training victim the PA 1700mm span 4S Supercub. Slightly wider span by 100mm and of course working on a bigger battery pack.

 

My foamie choices now consist of the following

 

FMS PA supercub 1700mm 4S

Arrows Husky 1800mm 6S

FMS Beaver 2000mm 6S

Xfly Twin Otter  1800mm 6S

Xfly Tasman Bush plane 1500mm 3S

 

Plenty there to keep me going and probably the best options for a change in model ..... once I am past my A test and have flown the life out of the Supercub.

 

I need to unbox and check it over so there will be some pictures later. Should have done it yesterday but didn't have time and since my potential flying opportunity is off for tonight due to working on and gusting winds it will give me something to do .

 

That's it now .... the very last .....:classic_laugh:

 

Cheers

and the underside showing ready installed push rods, horns and servos. I did not remember to check but I am sure the hinges are the hidden mechanical type ..... too much of a rush.

and there we have it.

 

As I said ..... 1800mm wingspan ..... works with a 6S 4000mah battery ( seperate ) Has vector stabilisation and flaps... built in navigation lights, steerable tail wheel etc.

 

any other questions ..... feel free to ask.

 

cheers for now.

A little bit of an impulse buy Gary.

 

I saw it ..... then done the usual internet search for reviews .... which seemed good. I like the sise  and the fact that it was running a 6S.

 

I already had the required batteries which helped and obviously the required transmitters so it was just the model itself and my go too Spektrum AR 620 receiver.

 

It gives me choice when I pass my A test as I am looking to stay electric and make use of the easier foam nature of the ARTF's as everything is installed. You still have to set the model up and set your rates etc but a lot easier than getting servos installations etc correct when building the equivalent balsa  ply kits.

 

I have several of the balsa models but initially as I get my A test and start to experiment a bit with which models I use and introduce into my newbie fleet ...... I'll stick with electric ..... and the easier  pre installed foam range. You can still have loads of choice with what you can buy and add a bit of variance into you journey.

 

I must admit .... the last one statement must be becoming closer to a reality though ....... the shed is stowed out. 😄

 

cheers for now.
