  • F-86 Sabre 64mm EDF PNP

    The North American F-86 Sabre was the first US fighter aircraft designed using the German research that showed a 35 degree thin swept wing gave superior transonic performance. The Sabre was the equal of its well-known Korean War opponent, the Mig-15. It was the highest production US jet fighter ever made, with total production of 9860 units. It was manufactured in many variants, and the Navy FJ fighter was a modified version suited for carrier operations. It was the first fighter equipped with air-to-air missiles, and later versions were supersonic in a dive. All in all, it is a classic.

    While Arrows has introduced a number of EDF jets, from the hand tossed Viper to the high-end MiG-29 and F-15, our engineering team began with the Marlin 64mm EDF, still the best EDF trainer made. The F-86 is the successor to the Marlin with fixed gear for strength and the same full 5-channel performance with flaps. The plane has excellent performance and agility at high speed and stability during landings.

    The smooth 12-blade 64mm fan sounds more realistic than older 5-blade 64mm units others use. Because of the more powerful 2840-3150KV motor and a 40 amp ESC, this plane is capable of top performance even though it is larger than other 64mm F-86's, with maneuvers such as rolling, diving, looping, and inverted flight. The quick release landing gear allow for fast transition from ground take-off to hand lauch and facilitates easy transport.

    The EPO foam is tough and at 820mm length and 860mm wingspan, it is a perfect 1/10 scale of the original full-scale plane. The contours, panel lines, and markings are highly accurate and realistic. The special water-based paint has a very realistic look. Assembly is fast and simple using only a few screws.

    Get ready for a new experience in EDF's with the Arrows 64mm F-86 Sabre.

    A few months ago I ordered the bird from Hong Kong. This bird flies sweet. Has landing gear , so you do not have to hand launch. Flaps and rudder are also included. It flies similar to the larger 80mm version from free wing . Has great detail, and it has great vertical performance on a 4s 3300 50 or higher c battery. I should have waited for hobbyzone since I paid more for mine from overseas.

    I am not a jet person but this F-86 just looked so good I had to have it. The assembly was one of the very best I have seen. Everything fit perfectly and it was completed in less time than charging the battery. This morning was the maiden and holy smoke it flew great. The flaps make it so sweet for landing and slow flying. I strongly recommend grabbing this F-86 while it is so affordable because it is underpriced for the quality.

    I already own the Marlin and have found it to be a great beginner EDG. However, the Sabre may give it a run for its money, mostly because of the Vector control system. Assembly is quick, the little side pockets to slip the aileron and flap lines through is incredibly helpful and there is sufficient room in the fuselage for your receiver and for my purposes, a BEC. No glue, just some provided screws. For radio setup I just copied my Marlin and added channel five for the Vector (it's a 3 position switch on my Radiomaster) and mounted my Turnigy receiver up under where the canopy snaps down. Balanced perfectly with a 4S 2200 all the way forward. Vector setup up took maybe five minutes.

    I won't fly an 8 servo plane with a stabilization system on the BEC in the ESC. No idea of the quality and if there is a failure, I still want control of my surfaces. 6amps continuous and 10 peak is sure better than the 3/5 most internal BEC put through.

    The maiden was about as uneventful as any I've had. Half flaps for takeoff in stabilizer only mode, no trim needed and then shifted to what I still call safe mode which I hated immediately as I do on all the Horizon products. It's too controlling and IMO, should be reserved for panic situations like an uncontrolled flat spin. Landed on half flaps, perfect touchdown on the mains and then the nose gear a couple second later all on 0 throttle and a LONG glide path.

    You can stall it in a turn if you are just being stupid and have bled off all the speed and are at 0 throttle. However, in normal flying, you won't need to power through the turns like many jets. I make my turn onto final with very moderate throttle, kill power when I straighten out and then flaps deployed. It settles in just beautifully with no stabilization on although this is probably where I should use it.

    People at the field loved the plane, many of them saw it in action in Korea (yes, we're an aging club), couple even flew it during their time in the service so it was warmly received. Good detail, good paint but I always recommended a coating of clear water based poly to protect the finish as long as possible.

    Bottom line - there are no negatives and I would buy it before the next price increase as we all know it's coming. I wouldn't worry about spares at it seems very durable and the gear is pretty stout. I do recommend removing the wing tanks - they look scale but really drag the speed down - it is actually pretty quick with them off (quicker than the Marlin actually). Glad I did an early order as this is a FUN plane to fly and one of the few jets where you can actually do 5 minutes on the 2200 but you better stick your first landing because there isn't much left for a go around.

    This F-86 model is a fun flyer and very stable. I also have the Marlin and think the F-86 is more stable especially in the approach and landing phase. The vector control works great on a 3 position switch on my DX8. I am using a AR 620 receiver.
