Unfortunately, the AcroPro kit is currently out of stock. If you would like to be put on a waiting list so that you'll be notified when we plan the next limited production run of the kit, please send us an email at   office@srbatteries.com  .

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.

"Yesterday AcroPro flew and the field was crowded with club members. The club president hand launched for me and what a flight! A quick climb to altitude and a trimming pass over the field required zero adjustments with hands off flight. The CG turned out perfect and for five minutes AcroPro looped, flew inverted with no down elevator required, did several single and multiple axial rolls, a few low passes down the runway and a fairly decent cuban eight. With elevator at 1/2 inch up and down I couldn't get the AcroPro to stall. It just mushed along. The final approach and landing were simply perfect. A very stable and easy to fly model. You have exceeded your best efforts to date with this new flyer." Dick Kumin
