Arrows RC has announced a new electric ducted fan 64mm trainer named the Marlin. This is the first electric EDF trainer in its class to be equipped with fl*ps. All parts for the Marlin are stocked in the USA and available through either HobbyZone.com or ArrowsRC.com The price is $159.99.
Designed with the beginner to intermediate pilot in mind, this plane has a more rob*st fixed landing gear than most, to handle b*mpy landings. More importantly it is the only plane in its class to have fl*ps to shorten takeoff, and to make approaches and landings more like those of a high wing trainer. The 3150kV motor combined with a 40 Amp speed control, and a powerful 64mm 11-blade EDF, ensure plenty of power for takeoff and maneuvers. The fan sounds like a real turbine.
This plane basically has eight scr*ws and some servo connections to complete assembly. No glue is necessary, and because we use 8 servos we are not running a lot of control rods around. Even the nose wheel has it’s own servo. Flap and aileron connections are made with ball linkages, for greater strength at higher speeds. A latch type canopy makes in flight canopy loss a thing of the past.
If you are looking for a first EDF to try, or are looking to move up to a EDF without spending a bundle, this plane is for you.
