This plane is a Plug N Play version and includes servos, motor, ESC, but does NOT include the transmitter receiver, battery or charger.
  • Marlin 64mm EDF PNP

    Something different! The Arrows Marlin 64mm EDF is an ALL NEW design with the beginner to intermediate pilot in mind. This plane has a more robust fixed landing gear than most, to handle bumpy landings. More importantly it is the only plane in its class to have flaps 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 ESC, 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 screws 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.

    Features

    • Sleek aerodynamic airframe
    • Screw together assembly
    • Flaps
    • Ball linkages
    • Latch type canopy
    • Ultra durable EPO foam
    • The perfect beginner jet!

    The rave reviews on the Marlin are true folks! Not only is it both forgiving AND a capable aerobat,  This plane can take a punishing with little damage.  The Marlin's landings in gusty winds were well behaved but my lack of skill still ended up flipping it and cartwheeling it and bouncing it....all with just some minor road rash.  A lesser plane would have gone to the hospital.  I LOVE this plane!!!

    Assembly was a breeze. Flights over 4 minutes with 2200 4s. Wing loading is very light so the plane slows down nice on approach. Not typical for EDF jets. behaves well in the air. Try to squeak the landings in. If you screw it up this plane will porpoise on landing. The good news is mine is fine after a few cartwheels. Durability seems awesome! Great value for the price!

    The Marlin is Fantastic!

    Quality

    Fun

    Value

    Durability

    Appearance

    The Marlin is a fantastic airplane. One of the absolute best foam airframes I have seen. It's beautiful. Simple, and cheap. It uses less expensive 4S batteries common to those who fly say the Timber X, many warbirds, and the like.

    The manufacturing is at least as good as FMS, E-Flite, and Freewing. Maybe even better. Decals are applied perfectly and no bubbles. The wing uses machine screws that go through plastic fittings in the wing then mate into brass threads in the fuselage. The fit and finish is perfect. I was truly impressed by the quality. It is extremely light. Much lighter than other similar products and this obviously contributes to its handling due to lower wing loading.

    I only have 4 flights but wow! This airplane flies beautifully. It tracks perfectly and has no bad habits that I could wring out. It is just a joy to fly and I felt very confident with it within minutes. Very stable and plenty of power. I was flying it with an Admiral 3000 4S. I was landing it too fast though. I needed to just slow it down and the landings would have been great. Almost relaxing. The only issue I had was I lost radio contact to it twice on different flights. It happened in the same spot after I turned final. I am not sure if all control was lost or just power. If this is a RX issue, then obviously the airplane is not at fault. The only other thing I could think of is a faulty ESC.

    In any case, not too much damage. She still flies great. I will swap out the Admiral RX and put in an actual Spektrum RX. I have another Admiral RX that I have not had an issue with.

    If you want an inexpensive EDF with very good performance and super fun to fly and uses cheap 4S batteries, then the Marlin is a good choice. Really fantastic airplane. Would love to see it with retracts! ;-)

    I will definitely be looking at more Hobby Arrows in the future.

    I love flying the Marlin because it tracks like it's on rails and the sound is great. No whiney fan noise just smooth air trusting out of the rear. Keep the nose high on approach and come down on the mains for nice greased in landings. One more thing; I had a slight problem with the nose gear as I was one of the first to buy the Marlin from Hobby Zone. I called them up to talk about the gear and they promptly sent out new and improved
    gear at no cost. That is what I call great service!!

    I purchased the Marlin about a month ago and installed a lemon gyro receiver. On the day of the maiden flight two very experienced club members and I checked the direction of travel in the safe setting and the stabilizer setting and found all control surfaces moving in the correct directions. we did not thing to check it in the off position to see if surfaces were moving in the right directions .One of the three of us who has the most experience tried to take the airplane off.It crashed at full throttle the nose broke off in front of the wing and the right was bent straight up in the air. We than found that the aileron control surfaces were reversed.The plane looked like it was a total loss but the more experienced guy who had been flying it took it and did an amazing repair job. I have been flying it since and have really it. If using a lemon receiver check it in all modes before flying. Hobby zone are great people to do business with.

    Amazing 64 mm EDF. Very impressive

    Quality

    Value

    Durability

    Appearance

     Have to say, I was really surprised at this one. At this price point you’re getting a high-quality 64 mm trainer jet. But you can do a lot more with it, it all depends on your experience level. I flew with a roaring top 3300 35c, and also on a admiral 4000.  Both of these packs are more than the recommended size,  but the plane handled it no problem. Just make sure you push them far back enough so you can get the proper CG .   I installed a lemon Gyro in it.  I maiden the plane on a really windy day, the Gyro really did help it out. I believe you don’t need a Gyro as long as it’s not too windy, hopefully I’ll put some video up without the Gyro if the wind ever stops blowing .  I highly recommend this EDF.  Five out of five stars.   Here’s a link to my maiden video, make sure you check out Don’s RC airplanes for more videos  https://youtu.be/MaFXB0zsgrM

    Marlin My First EDF

    Quality

    Fun

    Value

    Durability

    Appearance

    The Marlin is my first EDF plane I have been flying Warbirds and Sport planes since 2011. I would classify myself as an Intermediate Pilot . After seeing this airplane on Pilot Ryan and Captain Mike’s YouTube podcast and talking to Ryan he convinced me to try this as my first EDF plane. I have a lot of 4s batteries and didn’t really want to jump into the 6s realm so this appeared to be a good option to get started in Jets. Now for a review of the Marlin. 
    Pros 
    The assembly could not have been easier it literally took less than 10 minutes to assemble. 
    All the screws are the same so no searching for the right screw. 
    All the screws are 2mm hex no worries about stripping screw heads. 
    The fit and finish of the pieces were nice no big gaps. 
    Ample room in the battery bay for the battery, receiver, and gyro if you want. The battery tray has enough room to use several sizes of batteries and still be able to move the battery forward or back to achieve proper c/g. I preferred an Admiral 3000 4s 35c about 3/4 to 1 inch back from the front of the battery bay. 
    Ball linkages on all control surfaces for positive control with no slack. 
    Flaps for shorter take offs and nice controlled landings. 
    No retracts for those who are newer to EDF’s less to worry about. 
    Flight characteristics on this airplane are amazing. It does whatever you in put with no weird tendencies and is very stable in all flight modes. The wing loading is nice and light. 
    Power is ample. It has plenty of power to do any maneuver with a little in reserve if needed. 
    Good flight times. With my preferred battery an Admiral 4s 3000 mah 35c I could fly 4 minutes at 60 to 75 percent throttle with a couple of full speed passes and land with 3.8 per cell. This would allow you enough battery reserve to go around again if needed. 

    Cons 
    The nose gear strut wire is very soft and bends easily. The top wire piece above the connection collar will bend if you have the slightest bounce on landing or land on grass. The upper wire will break where the flat is for the grub screw after you straighten it a couple of times. 
    The steering servo is also weak and should be an all metal gear servo. Mine stripped the first time I went of the side of my paved runway onto the grass. 

    Conclusion
    I would strongly recommend the Marlin to anyone who is comfortable flying most Warbirds and  Sport type airplanes. It is a great option for anyone like me that wanted to try EDF Jets but wasn’t ready to jump into the bigger 6s powered  EDF Jets.

    I flew the marlin off a dirt run way, it jumped up in the air with half flaps, in low rates. It flew great, easy to fly i have a gyro in and it made it look like there was no wind at all. It's rock solid flight even for a novice like me was effortless. All in all a great plane but you do have to fly it to a landing.

    A great first EDF

    Quality

    Fun

    Value

    Durability

    Appearance

    I have flown my Marlin 11 times using Roaringtop 2700 4S batteries with excellent results. The battery is positioned approx. 1/4" from the front of the battery tray. I set my timer at 4 min. 30 sec. and then land. I have flown as long as 5 min. 10 sec., a go around, and still had 50% left in the batteries. I fly around 60% throttle about 75% of the time and higher the rest. I thought the surface travels were very conservative so I set my surface travels at 50% higher than suggested and this works great for a intermediate level flyer like me. If you are a more experience flier then you may want to increase them, but start low and then go higher.

    I been in the hobby slightly less that 2 years. This is a great first EDF and the flaps option is a nice extra for getting used to bigger EDF planes, if that is in your future. The flaps do not have any suggested settings so I have my takeoff flaps set at -55% and landing flaps set at 7% on a Spektrum DX8. I and the group at the field are amazed at how well the plane flies and I have no problem setting her on the runway. There are a couple of other guys now looking at the Marlin as a first EDF.

    I am using a reprogrammed AR636A receiver with 3 flight modes. Not sure if stabilization is needed, it flies very stable in near calm conditions. I do have the receiver setup in 3 flight modes, zero setting in mode 1, and stabilization set in flight modes 2 and 3. Mode 2 has 40% rate gains across the board and mode 3, has 55% rate gains across the board. Priority for mode 2 and 3 are set at 110. The plane flies with no flutter at full throttle on those settings and is rock steady in winds to 15 mph.

    If you are looking for an EDF, get this one to start, it has an excellent price and is easy to fly.

    Great New Favorite Plane

    Quality

    Fun

    Value

    Durability

    Appearance

    My jet arrived in perfect condition. I did have a problem connecting the horizontal stabilizer to the fuselage. If you grab the rudder and gently move it forward the stabilizer will shoehorn in perfectly.

    For the maiden flight I used a 4 cell 2200 LiPo.  My clubs field is grass covered and is 600 X 300 feet, eliminating the need for flaps on takeoff. Ground handling is great with the steerable front wheel.

    I was surprised at how easy the takeoff was.  The Marlin is very stable and tracked nicely even in a 5 to 8 mph wind. The speed and jet sound make it great fun to fly. To play it safe I set the timer to 3 minutes and measured the power remaining. After 32 flights I determined (based on how I fly) 4 minutes for the 2200s and 5 for the 2500s.

    You will be amazed how far this plane will deadstick without landing flaps.  I used the right out of the box setting (about half flaps) and made nice 3 point landings. This is a great plane at a great price.

    On the down side (and I'm nitpicking here) a front wheel the same size as the main wheels would improve landings and takeoff s on grass.  Also on one flight I experienced a power loss after takeoff which quickly disappeared.  After landing I noticed grass clippings around part of the belly intake screen and grass clippings in the tailpipe.  It might be a better idea to locate the intake on top of the fuselage.  All in all, if you buy this EDF you won't regret it, the fun factor is that high.

    This jet is nothing short of amazing, especially for the price. It flies so solid, almost like my Avanti 80MM. Plenty of vertical and aerobatic performance, and over 4 min on 3300 battery. Assembly is easier than any plane I've put together, fit and finish is just flawless., you can't tell where the fuselage ends and canopy begins, it's that seamless. Overall weight was 34 oz with 2200 battery, not much heavier than my stinger 64, but I enjoy the flights better with this one. Flaps slow plane down to a crawl. Only weak point is the front landing gear servo, mine makes a noise when turning sharp and gets a little stuck. Has not failed yet though.

    The Marlin is my first EDF. This is a quality plane that is stable, easy to fly, and highly recommended. I initially had problems because the new receiver I installed in the plane was defective. The Hobby Zone staff provided outstanding service in assisting with troubleshooting and resolving the problem. Best customer service I've experienced with any hobby shop!

    Appearance

    This is my first EDF and I'm glad I chose it. I've been flying for quite some time, but mainly focused on aerobatic planes. Many 64mm EDF's are under-powered, lack a rudder, and do not seem very durable. Virtually no other has flaps, which are helpful to slow these slippery planes for smaller landing areas. The Marlin is a peach, with plenty of power, an effective rudder (knife edge flight is straightforward), and responsive flight characteristics, while being a great first EDF with which to have a good experience. The jet flies better than many of my other planes and looks terrific. All the normal aerobatic maneuvers are straightforward. One of my flying buddies says it looks like a baby Avanti S, which is a big compliment. After a few bouncy landings, the nose gear failed. A quick call to Dan was all it took to get the parts needed on the way. He was extremely helpful and quick to both admit the weakness and have improved parts ready to go. As a side note, Dan says they are going to be bringing out additional EDF's soon. I'll keep a watch for them.

    This is a great EDF trainer. This airplane fly's great and you cannot beat the price. I have seen this recommended as a great first EDF, and that is true. It also would not upset me if someone picked this up as a first low wing trainer, the flight characteristics are that stable. Plane glides great and flaps make for controllable landings. Very satisfied with this plane. Great job Arrows!

    I have been looking for a first time jet that I would not have to buy 6 cell batteries for and the Marlin fit the bill. Very easy to assemble and the foam finish is very good. My only complaint is the plane manual calls for CG between 80- 90 and with a 4s 3000 it was almost impossible to balance. Then I looked at the Hobby Zone site specs and it says CG should be 72-75. Now it balances at perfectly. I've seen this problem before with manufactures specs specifically with FMS. Dealers should bring it to manufacturers attention.

    Easy to fly. VERY fun. I had to lower the rates substantially. Obviously different flight characteristics from ALL my traditional prop planes. Got to say this is such a nice change. Straight as an "Arrow" (pun intended) on run up. I needed maybe 3 clicks of down elevator and that's it. My initial landings were pretty ugly. But are improving. I am finding that minimal flaps keeps thing a bit more predictable on takeoffs and especially landings. Like I mentioned. You should own one.

    ....as your first or twentieth EDF. I am thankful the E-flite Habu STS 70mm EDF Smart Jet PNP is not available until almost 2021. I "was" close to pulling the trigger on it. The Marlin is simple, FUN and solid . 20 minute assembly time. I needed maybe 3 clicks of elevator and it fly's straight and level. My first few landings were a bit rough since its flight characteristics are, of course, different than my traditional prop planes. The rates on mine have been reduced pretty dramatically. 50% with 20% expo it what I use currently. And it still responds VERY well. My flaps are set at 30% for half flaps and 60% for full. I have only used half for both take offs and landings and that seems more than adequate for me. This plane is such a great change of pace and I look forward to flying it everyday. As I mentioned, you should own one too.

    I've had this flying for a couple of weekends now and it's a fun flying jet. Take offs have been smooth and with flaps it can slow down for nice easy flying. Raise the flaps and you can speed things up. Came in for a landing, got a little slow and dropped it about 10 ft and no damage, another landing and a wing caught a weed and cartwheeled the plane, just lightly bent the nose. Holding up pretty good!

    The Marlin is an awesome jet. I am so glad the elite f15 was out of stock because I found this plane after and couldn't be happier. I wanted a good first time edf and this is definitely it. With the flaps my landings are as smooth as can be. The plane can cruise super slow or light it up blazing fast.
    Not sure what happened with shopping, took almost a month. I ordered something from China the same day and received it before. I was worried with the extra time sitting and being moved around in shopping it would be damaged but thankfully they didn't just send it in its box like other companies, they put it inside a larger box which took all the damage.
    Bottom line I've had dozens of planes and this is by far my favorite!!!

    Awesome little jet. We now have 6 of these at our club's field and everyone is really impressed with how well they fly , sound and take a not so perfect landing. Our club has a well manicured grass field and these jets have no problems getting off the ground. The decals easily come off for some fun custom paint jobs. At this price you can't go wrong. Make sure and purchase the upgraded front gear, this has been the only weak point of this jet.

    This is a great EDF jet. With a 64mm EDF, but it is larger than most in this class. It is light, and easy to fly. Tracks well, no need for a gyro. Fast when you want it to be, slow when needed, with or without flaps. Inexpensive, and uses a 4 cell 2200 - 3300 mah battery. I use both, 2200 all the way forward, and 3300 towards the rear. I like that it has fixed gear, this adds to its ease of flying. I have many other EDF jets, but I fly this one the most.

    Pretty good - Nose Gear is a problem

    Quality

    Fun

    Value

    Durability

    Appearance

    First the bad, then the good. The nose gear is insufficient for anything other than perfect landings on hard-surface runways. I land on hard-pack dirt and had to repair my gear after the second landing. The servo stripped and I replaced it with a 90-degree metal gear servo. The upper gear piece snapped off at the detention. The lower gear piece remained intact. I have replaced the upper gear piece twice already even though I land on the mains. However, this is a great jet. I love the styling and it has plenty of power. The flaps help for shortening the takeoff and landing rolls. The construction is otherwise solid with alot of extras like the hatch-latch and ball joint control rods. It is a great beginner EDF for experienced RC pilots wanting to add a jet to their collection. Fix the nose gear and this would be a GREAT jet!

    Appearance

    As others in the forums this jet has an issue with the front landing gear, The rod connecting servo arm to the front landing gear breaks and there is NO replacement part offered for this jet. So unless you are good at diy replacement parts i would pick a different jet. One of the guys at my field is going to try and make a replacement rod for me. Also the front servo gears are plastic and strip easy.

    On a positive not before the gear broke it had no issues taking off from the grass runway.

    (Note from Dan, We had the factory obtain higher tensile strength steel gear. We then have packaged it with the plastic servo arm, and collet, and included this spare set in every new plane. We have been shipping them to anyone who notified us of a problem with their gear)

    The plane flys beautifully! My only criticism is that the nose gear bent on my second landing which was admittedly a little rough.   I was able to straighten it but I am concerned about it’s durability.  I see that there is an upgrade to the nose gear that I should order.

    The product arrived amazingly quick after it was ordered. Great packaging. Very easy to assemble. Maiden flight went great. On the second flight I came in a little hard and the nose gear bent. I had heard from other guys in our club that had the Marlin that the nose gear was a little weak. I have since ordered and received (once again very quickly) the heavy duty nose gear replacement.  I haven't yet had     
    an opportunity to install and try out the new nose gear.
