An exciting development of Silverlit’s best selling X-Twin mini planes, the amazing Air Acrobat features an undercarriage, and elevator function too. Now you can take off from the ground, and perform impressive loops upon command, with this sensational stunt plane. The attractive Air Acrobat gift box includes a fully assembled aeroplane supplied ready-to-fly, complete with a pre-installed 3-channel digital proportional radio control system, and an informative flight manual. Suitable for both beginners and enthusiasts, steer the model using differential thrust by simply moving the transmitter joy stick left or right, whilst operating the throttle to climb or descend. Easy to fly outdoors in calm conditions, and made of lightweight flexible foam to withstand the occasional heavy landing. The Air Acrobat incorporates a powerful lithium polymer battery and will fly for up to ten minutes, whilst recharging direct from the transmitter in less than half an hour. The X-Twin aeroplanes are available on 27MHz bands A, B or C, to allow up to three different Silverlit models to be flown together. As colour and frequency varies, we are unable to guarantee which colour product or radio control band you will receive. Requires 6 x AA alkaline batteries (not included).
The X-Twin Acrobat 3 channel is a full functional radio control, 3 channel plane with precision speed control for excellent flying stability. The rear rudder has its own control function to allow the plane to perform a host of stunts. Its easy to operate and control through slow to fast speed flight. Flying styles include hand take off, descend and spot landing, circling and gliding. The Air Acrobats wings are made of special EPP polyfoam material to withstand most crashes. The plane can be recharged simply by plugging into the hand held transmitter. The transmitter also has a host of other key functions including a charging indicator, throttle control, band selection, a power indicator, yaw control, pitch control and a trimmer for alignment. The X-Twin also includes a 'crash pack' spares package just for any unfortunate breakages, the pack includes a spare propeller, landing wheels and a protective outer shell.

Enjoyable easy flying..Highly recommended
Short flying time: 3 minds for 30 min charge, but can charge from AA batteries, on the go
We lost our first one in the bushes- so be careful!
Our second one was faulty: frustrating
Third time lucky?
Flown outside on 5mph or less windy days. Great fun to be had when there are thermals as it will fly quite high but always be aware the steering is quite bad so you have to plan ahead. Down elevator is you friend as the engines will get it high and the wind will always carry it away. I also have added blutac to balence the plane out. I have some on one wing and on the nose. On windy days a blob on the top of the middle bit of the plane can really help it. Some on the nose also works well but it depends on the wind and conditions as to how much blutac I have on the plane.
It can be looped but its not easy get the plane high cut the engines then down elevator the wait then full power and up elevator and it will loop the loop. Turns well when its in a steep banked turn and up elevator is used. It will themal really well as the plane can maintain level flight on a low power setting so once some lift is found turn it and then hold the power and up elevator to keep a could tight turn going and it will climb in the thermal (rising air current). Though bewarned it we get high very quickly so you must act soon or have a long walk! Once out of control distance it still flies well by itself.Read more ›
However, in practice the elevator at the back of the plane didn't really work - the planes natural attitude was to currve towards the ground. This could be avoided by constantly pulling back on the stick to go up, but as soon as you tried to turn the plane the natural downwards curve re-asserted itself, and the plane would crash. It couldn't be kept in the air.
I returned mine to Amazon, who I'm pleased to say accepted it for a refund (with a credit note).
If you want a 3 channel plane I'd recommend spending a little bit more and getting something like the Erc Mirco Spitfire - I bought one of these instead and it flies well, controllable and entertaining. It's more fragile, but then as you can control it it doesn't crash so much, and also spare parts are available.
