Donatas Design: Arrow V5

As i mention in Sultimate XL thread i start my own company that will be producing hi quality indoor kits. Together with my partners from Sweden www.Autopartner.se . First kit released by Donatas Design will be Arrow Version 5, this is evolution of famous Arrow that had VPP propeller mounted inside fuselage. I decide to release plane as regular airplane with motor in front first. This V5 Arrow together with vector control system prove to be one of most advanced and elegant looking F3P-AM designs available today. With same airplane i won prestigious IITOP 2011 aeromusical competition were most of Europe top pilots participate and finish third in ETOC. Here i share pictures of first prototype.
I'm very happy with factory work, specially on printing and cutting, everything fits perfect and looks simply gorgeous. However to make it competition level kit i prepare big list of small improvements that i expect to see in mass production. I put all my knowledge and heart in this airplane to make it as good as possible for mass production. ArrowV5 is big airplane, fuselage lenght is 94cm, this definitely give great appearance in flight in big hall. Big size does not mean big weight, kits are made from good quality flat material, all printed parts weight is only 48 grams! Also it size and right proportion of control surfaces, give plane unique flying characteristics, as you can see plane can be super agile and very precise as well!

Here is original plane in action:

(Special thanks Mr. Jurgen Heilig for video)

Hopefully next week factory can send me first mass production of Arrow and first samples of Symmetric. Long waited Symmetric will have fanciest painting i ever done! I will keep you updated in this thread about arrival dates, news and prices, im pretty sure we will be able to keep lower prices than most of other manufacturers.

Respectfully,
Donatas Pauzuolis

Would love to see the Arrow or the Sultimate in EPP built like the Telinks.

An epp plane in the 1.0-1.2m wing range would be really really great for sure. With your attention to details all the frames would be really stiff giving a good "connected" feeling but with durability of EPP.

We will staert work on EPP arrow quite soon, so it will be already available early spring, i think about 95cm Arrow, and later 1,20cm pattern trainer also from EPP.

So far here are several pictures from flying indoor Arrow outside:
