Donatas Design: Arrow V.6

Hello boys and girls i present you Arrow V.6. updated aeromusical design. Big thank you for Fred Midget from Higher Plane productions for provided Extreme Flight RC 104 Extra pictures. Also special thanks for Ignas for help with new color sheme. Kit is milled and printed on all sides, this mean no more ugly open white milling areas! Enjoy few first pictures. Depron part weight is ~42g. This makes plane acceptable for wide selection of equipment and naturally VPP unit.

Thank you all for such kind comments, im really excited about this one. Sorry for late reply, i build new 3 model at once Next week i will start flying all of them including new Arrow V.6. Here are answers to your questions and some building pictures:
Jamie, main goal of all small changes is to increase roll speed and plane stability with slightly longer fuselage. Plane is big bigger than V5, lenght is 95cm from motor mount to tip of rudder. Also i am very happy with depron parts weight, just 42,6g for such big plane. It will be very good platform for VPP, enought wing surface to carry extra weight and fly like regular good shockflyer and still have VPP system. Second Arrow V.6 will be build with VPP TVR system.

Everybody makes fun of me when I break out my 150 gram planes in front of the giants.

In most cases i am alone in field so no one there to make fun LOL Today i made first test flights in gym with Arrow V6. AWESOME machine, everyhting is like i expected. Roll rate is awesome, but at same time it is bit more stable than Arrow V5. I will try to make video next week.

Fuselage looks a little deeper round the canopy Don? Maybe just the new printed colours scheme of the canopy. Love the double sided printing on a milled model BTW. I always found the missing colour scheme a little strange to look at on earlier models

I assume you'll be working hard towards the world F3P champs with your new toys

Really cool. What are some things you look at in a foamie? Roll rate I know is one because having a foamie that rolls so fast the battery ejects is super important. But what else do you look for? What tendencies to you watch for and under what conditions are they likely to appear? I do a little plane designing myself, and though I have come a long way from when I started I do like learning new things...
