Probably the best way to describe the AcroPro is that it's a fully aerobatic Cutie on steroids! We've added a fully symmetrical wing, ailerons, a second hatch and cowl, beefed up landing gear mounts, gear fairings, battery tray and motor mounts. We've also dramatically increased the horsepower by utilizing the optional Jeti Phasor 15/4 brushless motor on seven cells.
The AcroPro is an aerobatic hotrod. Loops, rolls, stall turns, inverted flight, snap rolls, Cuban eights and all the rest of the usual maneuvers are no problem. It will even do horizontal and vertical eights!
Although the AcroPro can be significantly faster than the Cutie, it doesn't have to be. It will do all of the above maneuvers at a fairly sedate speed if you want it to. We didn't want the AcroPro to be a pylon racer because pylon racers eat up a lot of sky and require large flying sites. The AcroPro can easily be flown in a ball field just as the Cutie can.
Before we mislead you, the AcroPro wasn't designed to be an unlimited
3D aircraft with unlimited vertical performance. However, it will do just
about anything else you'd want.

In addition to the AcroPro kit itself, what will you need to get flying?
To complete your AcroPro, you'll need one of the
following sets, depending upon whether you are going to use one
channel or two channels to control the ailerons.
Two Channel Dual Extension Set, $17.95
Building Tools and
Material, $15.95 per roll
5/64� Ball Driver, $6.95
A 5/64� Allen Wrench will work fine with the socket head screws, but a Ball Driver makes it soooo much easier!
