Thought it would be a good idea to start a new thread relating to the balsa ARTF Acro Wot that's due to go on sale early July.

We've been test flying the review model over the last few weeks and have put together a little video.........

Did I hear you say that it's an ASP 70 up front in the review model?

Have an SC 80 put aside for mine!

I was planning on putting an Irvine .53 in mine. Is it really sacrilege to put a 2 stroke in an Acrowot, as some as suggesting?

the tragedy comes when fitting one to a wot 4, the acro seems to lend itself more readily to a four banger, has this thing got a forecast price yet?

i've one of these on order, I rang Ripmax Monday and they said possibly in next week.

I haven't decided yet wether to go IC with a Saito 82,or asp 80 or Electric (which I will fly more)

Are you saying its a tragedy to fit a 2 stroke to a wot4? (The Irvine .53 is in mine at the mo, and I was planning to put the Irvine .46 in the wot4, and move the .53 to the AcroWot).

Wot4 is great crack with the .53

It relly looks great , but can I be a realist and wonder if the eflite power 60 would be installerable and if it has provision for easy installation of electric

nope, not at all, the acro is a goer with a 4 stroke, best motor for the wot 4 is the superb irvine 53 2 stroke
