Simple is beautiful. Without any landing gear to deal with, the Arrows 50mm T-33 is lightweight and streamlined – perfect for those with a tight flying field or budget!
To minimize drag, increase flight time and guarantee precision flight characteristics of the T-33, Arrows designed a rigid single-piece wing structure and horizontal stabilizer. The lightweight airframe and exceptional aerodynamics give the Arrows 50mm T-33 excellent low speed handling and flight time – uncharacteristic for small EDF jets of its size.
Power comes courtesy of a 50mm 11-blade fan unit, 2627-4500KV brushless motor and a high performance 30A ESC (with 3A BEC)- giving unparalleled speed and sound.
In addition, Arrows takes the details a step further, with a servo protector on the bottom of the wings to facilitate belly landings. There are distinctive fuel tanks on the wingtips, and detailed decals to enhance the scale details.
How do you get pinnacle performance on a small budget? Let Arrows work its magic with the 50mm T-33!
Just maidened this sweet little bird today and I have some important information to pass on. First off it flies very well nose heavy. I set the cg spot on and it was a handfull to fly. Second flight I moved the 1500mah battery all the way forward as much as possible and it flew very well. I would recommend adding some expo. If you climb until it slows down, it will have a violent stall spin. Adding some down elevator helps it come out of the spin. I did not have the vector system hooked up. The vector system does help it fly much better. This little bird looks so cool and when set up right flies so good. I give it a huge thumbs up. A very nice SUPER WICKED little jet.
The ARROWS T-33 like the VIPER is amazing for a 50 mm jet. It flies , better than much larger edfs. I fly it with a 3 cell 30c 1300. I get five minutes of mixed throttle flying . Easy to hand launch ,easy to fly, looks real good in the air ,sounds good, glides rock solid for easy smooth landings. Hobbyzone Arrows T-33
ANOTHER WINNER!!! GREAT FLYING 50MM EDF JET!!
screws for wing attachment need alittle adjusting. Flys good with 1800ma battery. Better for CG.
This jet was straight forward to put together
I needed to call hobbyzone was not able to understand directions but that might b me
**** they were very helpful walked me through entire setup which to 3 min. Thankyou for that
This is my first EDF jet and I've been flying it every day that I can before winter hits. It looks and flies great. I use a 1500mah 3S battery with the CG at about 68-70 mm from the wing leading edge. Yesterday I tried a 2200mah 3S in near 15mph wind and up she went. Gliding it in for a belly landing is easy. I appreciate the Vector gyro as a beginner, but have found the airplane needs to be level every time you plug in the battery for proper calibration. Hand launching it was a bit of a learning curve and I crashed it on my second flight but that was no fault of the airplane. Pilot error! Now I launch it nearly level, gyro on, at full power and haven't had any problems since. The crash revealed the fuselage is weak over the wing, so I sunk a few carbon fiber rods in lengthwise during crash repairs. It lived to fly another day and the day after that. I honestly like this jet so that much I that bought a second one. Excellent all around.
Shout out to whom ever created the online manuals! RcSaylors? Very helpful. Thank you! ??
To date I've purchased the Viper and T-33 and am extremely impressed. Although I haven't flown the '33 becauseof weather I can say it's construction and quality is great. One wee disappointment is the wing bolts are difficultto line up. I eventually got it done but considering there are many comments on line I'm surprised the manufacturer hasn't resolved the issue. With reference to the Viper. I can't count the number of flights I've had with it. I get 6.5 minute flights on a 1300mah 3s with good throttle management. It's a hoot to fly. I'll be pulling the trigger on the BAE Hawk soon... real soon.
One final note. I'm from Canada and ran into a few problems placing my order. Dan and his staff spent quite a bit if time sorting it out. I was surprised considering the cost of the items so it goes to show all purchases weather big or small as well as their customers are important to them.
Pros: Great little jet! It flies like it's on rails, and unlike the original version it does not sound like a vacuum cleaner! Nice and fast with a 50c 2200 pack!
Cons: As a good friend of the 1-1 scale version owner, it would have been nice to get permission to use his paint scheme but that is not my department. Also, a rudder would have been nice but I will add one.
I give it 5 stars!!
Fun, stable and not to bad on speed. Main reson for purchase is that I worked on them in my younger years. Had to have it!! Easy build and set up. Hand launch in stability mode makes it nice. I Hate !! hand launching.
Bang for your buck a fun jet. Been running on 4S 2200. Pretty fast. Handles the wind well on the vector. Vector makes the self hand launch pretty easy. Flew off the vector a little,, been windy since I got it. Does good rolls. Mostly been doing low high speed passes down the runway. Looks good in the air. Good stable glide for landings but will bounce on the runway. Grass is better landing for me. Foam on wingtip tanks a little soft. Dented one during assembly trying to get the screw holes lined up for the wing. Overall awesome plane.
Great airplane, not crazy noisy due to more blades in fan, flys great. Balance in manual incorrect, should be 70mm. I wasn't able to get it fly very well with 3 cell lipo but 4 cell 1300 works great. Just don't go full throttle continuously. When switch is set to beginner mode leave your self a lot of room, it turns a very wide arc. On medium mode it's just right for me and smooths flight out nice. I don't fly expert mode but I'm not that good a flier.
CG in manual is too aft. Measure 57mm back from where the wing root meets the fuse, which is 30% of the 190mm of the entire wing chord. The Freewing T-33 CG is at 30% and is spot-on. Flew several times today using a variety of batteries, always setting them for the 57mm CG and she flew well-balanced with each. Did not use the Vector board at all (removed), instead relied on the flight modes of a Spektrum AR630, my go-to Rx. SAFE and AS3X performed beautifully. Rates High 100, Mid 80, Low 60 for A and E, expos at 40. Used high rate in SAFE and low in AS3X mode. Batteries used: 2200 4s 35c; 1300 3s 45c plus nose ballast; 2200 3s 30c. I was happy with the performance of the first two setups—not so much the third. A nice looking and spritely flyer!
The quality of the model is excellent and it's a great looking aircraft. Putting it together takes only a few minutes once you figure out a system to align and attach the wing to the fuse with the 4 screws that are included. That can be a challenge because they are difficult to line up. According to the multitude of videos I've watched and comments on a forum the CG is incorrect. I set mine at 70mm from the root which seems to be the standard according to what I've read and seen. I found that to be a bit nose heavy but that can be a blessing on a maiden. I can work that out later mm by mm. The recommended battery is a 1300mah 3s so that's what I used. I expected a hand launch similar to the Arrows Viper which is basically effortless but that isn't the way it went. No matter what I tried and how many times I attempted to launch it did nothing but head for the dirt. A flying buddy finally took it upon himself to hand launch it and low and behold it flew.... and it flew well. It tracked nice, reacted great to whatever input I gave it and was as enjoyable as I would have expected. The vast majority of my first flight of just under 4 minutes was done on 3/4 throttle or less. Roll rate was good on the toned down throws which btw I only flew on low rates. It flies scale which is what I try to do. Lots of vertical power and it did a nice big loop without any real effort. My first landing was a little hot but other than that it was fantastic. Two or three clicks of left aileron and a few down elevator clicks and it trimmed out nicely. For a flight summary I'd have to say if you get it airborne you'll enjoy it. Disappointment level regarding a lack of power to safely hand launch with the recommended battery is high. That said, I do have an old shoulder injury that could be a big part of the problem as well as the T-33's physical size is larger and heavier than the Viper. Suffice to say a good buddy is building me a portable version of a bungie launcher which with any luck will allow me othing but successful flights. It's a lot of fun and good bang for the buck.
One last note... I removed the supplied and installed at the factory stability system. In my opinion it just isn't needed.
For the price, this is a great little plane. Assembly was a little difficult aligning the wing screws, but otherwise it went together very easily.
I dropped a 6 channel receiver in it, bound it and assigned a switch for stabilization very quickly and easily.
The plane flies really well on a 1300 mAH 3S battery. I believe the CG in the manual is off a little. I found it flew better nose heavy on the forward CG measurement.
I and many others learned the hard way that the CG shown in the manual is way off. The Arrows page has updated it now, The battery must be almost all the way forward in most cases to achieve a CG 60-70mm from the shown leading edge in the manual. The plane runs very well on a 4S 1300-1500 battery if you get the CG around 60-65mm. Please read the posts on RCGroups forum before flying this plane.
