The Vector System is equipped with three flight modes: Stability (returns the aircraft to level flight), Dynamic (counteracts movement not initiated by the pilot such as wind gusts), and Direct (no electronic intervention). This system is compatible with any PPM or PWM receiver.
As a do-it-all multi purpose aircraft, the Arrows RC Bigfoot has amazing features found on a whole multitude of aircraft. In terms of flight characteristics, the Bigfoot is trainer-like and easy to handle. It also has bush plane genes, with over-sized flaps that give unbelievable low and slow performance (takes off within 3 meters and flies on 1/3 throttle) and giant tundra tires for all-terrain performance!
If you are a fan of scale, you'll love the landing, navigation, and strobe lights along with the eye catching red trim scheme.
Designed to be easily assembled, the Bigfoot features a completely screw-together design, taking mere minutes to assemble for experienced pilots.
Go where no plane has gone before with the Arrows RC Bigfoot.
This airplane is awesome. It took me a little time to put it together, mostly the radio. It seemed that the connections didn't match up with my radio, so I had to change the inputs on my radio to accommodate. But the airplane is so cool. STOL no problem. With the flaps you get a nice soft stable approach and landing. Flaps up and it's a very sporty flyer!
Flies well from grass lane in a filed. Lane is about 12 feet wide. Flaps work well. Takes off in about 20 feet. Rudder very responsive to land great in slight cross wind situations.
It flys great and is very durable. It flys better on 4 cells and has plenty of power. It is sure nice not having to pay tax on your purchases. The paint around the battery opening is not very durable and flakes off.
I will buy one or two more
this plane fly's great went together real fast. will buy again
I haven't flown the bigfoot with the vectoring system. I am still flying my old bigfoot and it's going strong. I would recommend this plane to anyone it's a blast to fly.
Terrific trainer and value for the dollar, allows new flyers to the hobby to experience ailerons and flaps without moving up to a more expensive planes. Great flyer.
This is the best trainer I've found under $200. I fly it nearly every day. The Vector stabilization system works as well or better than SAFE, and is programmed specifically for this plane. Very sturdy, full featured, the perfect beginner-intermediate plane.
Excelent for fun, suitable for beginners and also makes good pirouttes.
Liked it so much I bought another after hitting a tree with my first one.
Very nice experience
My second one, it's that good.
Very easy build/assembly. Prop was balanced just about perfect out of the box. Plenty of room to mount the RX and the Vector system easy to hook up a nd works great. Did put a Dr Mad Thrust electronic on/off switch to turn landing lights on and off but left strobe lights on wing tips on all the time and flashing.
Cant say enough good things bout the Arrows Bigfoot. Or for all the Arrows planes. Very well built and detailed, Esplanade's for the money. I have 4 of them. And the service from Hobbyzone just can't be beat.
Been out of the RC Plane world for over 10 years. Got back into it with friends. I ordered this plane equipped with Vector Stabilization. Easy set up, easy to fly. GREAT VALUE for the plane.
Very happy with plane. Crashed it (too low & slow) with no visible damage but broken prop
The plane was shipped very quickly and was received in perfect condition.
It was very easy to assemble and is a great value for the price.
I was shocked when I opened the box at the quality of the Bigfoot. Will definitely purchase more from Hobby Zone. Unbelievable price and the packaging was fantastic. Been in the hobby 57 years and this is probably the best bargain I've had.
Nice RC model. Got in my maiden flight today but it was cut short when the wind abruptly kicked up from an approaching rain storm. Two clicks of Aileron trim was I needed. No bad habits.
Started flying back in the 1970's,just getting back in again.I must say this Bigfoot is one nice plane,easy to fly,even for this old man.Very smooth flying,lands nice and easy.Very easy assembly.Vector system is amazing.Only thing I changed was tires,installed softer and made a big difference.Also purchased a Husky,Edge 540,and Tecman ,the are beautiful planes also,just haven't had the weather right to try them
The Big Foot is easy to put together and looks to be a real winner. Hobby Zone is great to work with and Dan, my personal contact and support person, is very helpful and follows up whenever I need him.
Great company, great service and great products.
Fantastic flyer great for smaller fields. This ane has lots of power and with the flaps at full has incredibly slow landing speeds. I'm getting 8-9 minute flights on my 2200 3S packs. Perfect winter plane for our snowy New England winters. I've got a set of skis all ready to go on and I can't wait to do some snow flying. In short this Bigfoot is a great sport airplane. I'm sure glad I got it.
Great airplane, the Arrows Bigfoot. Great service at Hobby Zone.
Excellent product and service and support!
If you land and flip your plane, your need to buy an extra tail rudder because it will be broken each flip. Plain flies nice but the wings are a pain to break down to put in your car or suv. Over all 4-5 stars :)
I think this is one of the best trainers for those who want to be serious pilots. It's sturdy, well designed, easy to assemble and work on. One problem that seems to happen to everyone is the wheels fall off, generally on take-off. I'd suggest anyone ordering this plane to buy extra props, generic ones often dont fit properly on the spinner.
HAD A PROBLEM WITH THE ESC, HOWEVER DAN IS TAKING CARE OF THAT. A GREAT PLANE TO FLY...HIGHLY RECOMENDED.
Made with a denser foam, seems to hold up better to "hanger rash"
I did not like the response of the rudder seems to be a bit too small, Batt box a bit cramped, I purchased the Vector with mine but Vector instruction sheet was not much help. Still not sure if I can assign a switch for the vector system.
Made from a denser foam and therefore a bit more "crash resistant"
A very robust landing gear that holds up well to it's bouncy landing tendency. Old guys with fat hands will find the Battery box a bit cramped. LOVE the lighting ((( just downright neat and cool))) A well behaved flyer but seems to be a bit underpowered. I wish the "vector" system came with more inclusive instructions, I still don't know if it can be put on a switch. Very easy to assemble and all parts fit precisely. Like the new control arm links, they have a courser thread and are more predictable to adjust...looks like Arrow is trying to step up to being a first class manufacture.
Plane came missing the y harness for the ailerons so I can't even finish it. Also very confusing on what wires go where. Manual isn't much help when it comes to that. I guess if you were very skilled you would be able to put this plane together but don't buy this if you're just getting into the hobby.
