After years of trying I finally got mine two 16's :isohappy:

I'm now in the exclusive club of F-ARC owners.

They are unbelievable crisp. I few things that was new to me: The first two cells in bottom- and first cell in top skin, is in havier fabric, like ripstop dacron or something. The end caps for the spars is hard plastic rather then gummy and they are attached to a sewn in line going through the top of them. The deflate is a zipper rather then velcro that the original ARC had, and it runs cordvice. I find no drain holes.

No flying yet..

Hey, congratulations. They are a beast to fly.

one bit of advice. If you want them to turn, get yourself a big bar. 60cm+

Thanks.

I also own a Flysurfer MastAir 16 from the same time period, they must be better to fly then that monter :sarcastic:

Feels a bit bad to van Gogh it (cutting the ears of), but will fly it unmodded first. And I probably only do it with one of them anyway.
