BajaHobby 1.7m Arowana sport jet


Decided to pic one of these up and give it a shot. Price wise it's on the lower end of the composite scale so I was a little skeptical when I bought it, but Peter from Bajahobby is a good guy guys so I gave it a shot. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality. They did a good job. And with the sleek it should be fast and fly very well.
For anyone who wants the dimensions this jet is 66.5 inches long and has a wingspan of 68". The fuselage is made in one piece and the rudder has been molded in as well. The wing tube and elevator tubes are aluminum and very robust. All control surface have live hinging except the rudder which has traditional hinging. It comes with a 1500cc file tank but I am planning on purchasing a 60oz dubro for my flying. There are 8 pin mpx connectors for the wings and regular servo connectors for the tail. The tail wires are wrapped and protected with aluminum tape.

Do you know where the C.g. is for this jet? I'm finishing mine up with a P-70 jetcat turbine.

Had to enlarge the rails and push back the tube a bit.

Lol, you are correct. That's what I get for hurrying out a response from my cell phone. I have corrected the post.
