Ive not had the best luck with my Arrow. Broke the 8" kit prop on first flight and replaced it with a well under sized 6" prop from ebay. Had to repair her quite a few times now as she kept diving left and down on launch. But I think things are on the up (ptp) I have taken delivery of some 8&9" props now so will try them very soon to get some more height and duration. Very happy with last nights performance though.
Enjoy!

That looked like a nicely trimmed flight. Was that on the smaller prop? If it was you may only need a bit more right side thrust with the larger props.
Good luck with it.

Beautiful build! The esaki looks so tense on the fuselage, and there is absolutely no warp whatsoever. I've long thought of building one, you made me feel like it again! :-) I'd make it electric + RC though :-) Congrats on making a Guillow's fly! I never got there yet ;-)

Very nice flight!  I've seen several Arrows over the years and they've all been good fliers.
