Bigfoot 1300mm PNP with Vector Flight Stabilization System

Bigfoot 1300mm PNP with Vector Flight Stabilization System

Arrows AH010PV Airplane Electric PNP
In Stock
$229.99
This plane is a Plug N Play version and includes servos, motor, ESC, but does NOT include the transmitter receiver, battery or charger.
  • Bigfoot 1300mm PNP with Vector Flight Stabilization System

    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.

    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.

    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!

    Durability

    Appearance

    Great plane... Took only about an hour to put together. I replaced the flashing light Y-harness with a regular futaba one because I read that the lights flash with the one included and I didn't want the. The manual is pretty good. My first electric.
    It flies great and you don't need the flaps but they are fun to play with. Flew it with only some small trims. I fly it without the vector thing active. I get about 8% battery loss per minute with the 2200 pack.
    I wanted a plane that I could put in the truck and go to the field on a cold day and sit it down 10 min and get back in the truck and go home. This plane is perfect for that.

    I purchased this little beauty several weeks ago and flew the wings off it.....then I thought, it struggles a bit in the wind at or above 10 mph so I plopped a 4s 2200Mah lipo in and in the middle of the second flight on that size battery....I had no power....Dagnabbit! I fried my ESC (20amp) so I harvested a 40 amp out of a wrecked Eflite Cherorkee and WooHoo!That Bigfoot woke up and has been a real pleasure for many many flights and no hiccups from the motor or any airframe structures....I Highly recommend the BF to you for beginners as well as sportier antics. -Dr Ron

    This is one of the best planes that i have.The quality is excellant,have one with the vector and one just a pnp and they are both great.The foam is of high quality and the bolt on construction is fast and strong.I use the 3s and 4s 2200 batteries and it flys perfect with either one.It handels grass fields with out a problem and is right at home on asphalt.Can do a lot of 3d and is a good upgrade for somebody that is still learning as it can fly slow and can be made very docil and landings are easily done.Just a great plane and thats why i have two. kenny.

    Appearance

    Good looking plane, flies well. Took a while to get up the courage to maiden it, but flew 2 batteries through it and didn't crash. Burnt up an ESC seeing how it would taxi in the grass where I normally fly but it was an easy replacement. (It nosed over in the grass and I didn't cut the throttle fast enough I guess.) I feel confident that they would have replaced the ESC if I had contacted them but I planned on putting a 40A in it anyway. Would recommend this to anyone wanting a little bit larger plane. (Much easier to see in the air.) I do wish the tires were softer. I just got a Tecnam and looking forward to flying it soon.

    The quality of this kit is unsurpassed by anyone. Every fitting perfect, every screw lined up exactly. A very fast assembly with no concerns. The Bigfoot easily would qualify for a second or third plane, and yet is full of ability for the more experienced. Every maneuver is predictable. I enjoy flying a stall with a well behaved plane and the Bigfoot definitely qualify s as a well behaved plane. The Bigfoot is definitely a 5 star plane and I should have bought it when it first came out, but at that time I did not know Arrows produced 1st class aircraft.

    I received the Bigfoot on Friday and flew it this morning, Sunday. My plane came with the Vector installed but I removed it.
    The first flight was with a 3300maH pack and a friend was on the Tx. At full throttle it was pretty anemic getting off our Club grass runway. After a little trimming, we both flew it for awhile but loops and rolls were not attempted.
    I had purchased an APC 11x7 prop with the Bigfoot, as a backup. I switched from the stock prop to the APC and dropped in a 2200 pack. On the takeoff run I gave it a little 'up' and it shot into the air with authority. Wow!! I looked at my flying buddy and he was grinning.
    Now, the loops, rolls and and inverted flight were a breeze.
    So, much fun!
    I'm not an Expert, so draw your own conclusions!! It was a hot, humid day on the Southeast Coast but none of the three battery packs I used were more than slightly warm.

    I have nothing but good things to say about the Arrows Bigfoot PNP. Robust build quality, fit and finish are better then a comparable E-Flite Timber or Carbon Cub. Vector seems smoother and less intrusive then SAFE, although this plane flies on rails so you'll be surprised at how little you need to use Vector. It can fly low and slow with flaps deployed or fairly fast on 3S. Inverted, loops, knife edges, and predictable habits are all there. I paired mine to a Flysky FSi6-X without any glitches and am very happy with nearly 50 flawless flights so far. A fantastic plane.

    I wish I'd listened to my uncle who told me to have someone teach me to fly. I said I'll be alright I've played gta and other video games, can't be that different. Well something they haven't added to video games yet is wind.

    So after destroying the 1st one i bought and finally getting the hang of it before it just finally gave out, i ordered another one and it's been just great since then.

    The controller is pretty flimsy, one of the switches broke and the rudder servo on the plane went bad but for a $300 plane i can't really complain.

    Would totally but again.... Which i did. Haha

    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.

I'd suggest anyone ordering this plane to buy extra props, generic ones often dont fit properly on the spinner.

    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.

    Great looking plane, goes together easy. Flys great. It would definitely benefit from softer tires and a more powerful motor it in my opinion it is well under powered. I will be replacing the tire with something softer and the motor with something more powerful, otherwise this would be a much perfect plane. Because of the hard tires and under power motor is the only reason I am not giving it a full five star rating.

    A superb flyer, maybe even a "best first plane" for someone who understands the basics

    Quality

    Fun

    Value

    Durability

    Appearance

    The Arrows Bigfoot is a superb airplane in many regards. The foam is dense and not susceptible to gatoring, the motor is powerful on 3s and ridiculous on 4s, the airframe handles predictably and is rugged enough to handle noobish "interactions" with the ground without much challenge.

    Might be a great first plane for a noob with some RC experience, like someone who has become highly proficient on an RC flight simulator, and uses a stabilizer of some sort.

    Biggest weak spot: value for money isn't competitive with FMS's new 1300 mm PA-18 Super Cub, which has $100+ worth of features which make it more attractive. You will be replacing the hard foam wheels for something with a little more give, which will cost you almost $30. The Vector flight control system isn't any better than native systems inside Spektrum or Lemon gear, but you can't buy the plane without it, which drives the price up. The clips which attach the struts are hard to install and come off/get lost easily. I'm not that fond of the "tribal tattoo" graphics on the wings. The lights on the wings blink (for some weird reason) and that functionality can't be changed without chopping off the control module in the electronics; wing and landing lights don't blink in full-scale aircraft, so why do they blink here? I called Dan at Hobby Zone and he had no answers for me.

    Most of these issues are easily resolved in any of 10 different ways by experienced modelers.

    This is a very easy model to fly with any expertise - landings on spongy grass or loam are effortless. There are LOADS of opportunities to correct your flight path prior to landing. I was able to tailslide this airframe and even hover it effectively on its first flight; aerobatics of any other kind are entertaining. The airframe has no bad characteristics. If I had a recommendation: for fliers who want better penetration in gusty winds, just fly 4s 2200 or heavier 4s batteries as the added weight will make it react more predictably on approach. On 3s, there's so much wing area with flaps down that you have to "drive the airframe down to the deck" to get it to land. Plus, the crazy extra power is fun if you like to fly aerobatically.

    Pro tip: turn your rates down and your expo up as the large control surfaces are overly effective, even at slow speeds, which can leave you over-controlling the model at low altitudes.

    Bigfoot is the biggest plane for me so far and super fun to fly. Gets off the ground quickly, and flaps make it easy to land like a champ. Assembly was easy. The lights are a real bonus for early morning or dusk flying. Very stable and predictable. The gyro works excellent too. My Bigfoot made its maiden flight on a set of Dubro DUB825 skis and stomped like Bigski all through winter. Get a set of those skis and enjoy 4-season flying!
