ARS 300 104" Review
This is my 3rd AJ Aircraft purchase, I have previously purchased 2 Lasers.
The ARS is an awesome aircraft, it flies very well and is light for its size. The quality of the kit was excellent with just a few minor issues.
The fit of the cowling could have been better, I had issues with the canopy fitting under the lip of the cowling. After opening up some of the holes in the cowling it still doesnt fit correctly and I have to hold down the rear of the canopy to get the screws into the rear of the canopy because of the down pressure from the lip of the cowling on the frant of the canopy. I dont know how this is going to effect the longevity of the cowling and the canopy due to the amount of pressure placed on it during flight and subsequent vibrations it will receive in flight. I suspect they will both start cracking prematurely.
Other than the previous issue, the fit and finish of the rest of the kit was stellar, everything fit very well and was easy to assemble. The included hardware was very good and quality was top notch.
If I had to find another area to suggest a change, it would be the placement of the cable tube from the rear of the plane is in direct conflict with the rear wingbolt on the one side, the servo extension wires are in the way of the wingbolt. The other suggestion would be on the graphics on the side of the fuselage where they come to a point, dont line up with the leading edge of the wing. This is completely cosmetic in my opinion, and most other people probably dont notice or care about it.
Issues aside, the ARS is nothing short of amazing and I will continue to purchase AJ Aircraft in the future as well as recommend them to anyone I fly with.
I gave 4 stars only because of the cowling issue, if it hadnt been for that it would be 5 stars!
