    Buying an ArrowCopter second hand

    Chris, thanks for the comments, clarifies quite a few concerns that have been raised in this thread. The world record in this machine is especially impressive. And also good to hear that they will continue to support older machines and still have stock of parts. Did you have any troubles with...

    Buying an ArrowCopter second hand

    Yes, I have seen & flown in G1010. It has almost 600 hours on it and not in perfect condition but not unreasonable for its age. The biggest issue is the bottom of the rudder has worn down so needs repair to the carbon fibre (I assume not too difficult - but the arrow does not seem to have any...

    Buying an ArrowCopter second hand

    Buying an ArrowCopter second hand

    Thanks guys, this feedback is gold! For those niggling problems like not enough trim at high speed cruise and blowing a relay when engaging the prerotator and trim at the same time - surely the factory was notified and issued a fix for these design flaws? Or does the owner have to deal with...

    Buying an ArrowCopter second hand

    All, I'm interested in ArrowCopter #10 (G-1010, the only one registered in Australia) as a second hand purchase. It is an AC10 build 2012 rotax 914 with about 500 hours. This will be my first machine and should have finished my training by Christmas. There is so little info on the web about...
