Product Description

Product Description

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).

Very easy to fly and performs well, making simple airobatics possible with the tail flap. After a few "slight crashes" I had to reset the tail-flap and strengthen the nose with plastic (but that was hardly the plane's fault!)
Enjoyable easy flying..Highly recommended

Over all its a pretty neat plane. The plane itself is made out of polystyrene so it absorbs the impact pretty well but on the second day, a small rip started to appear on the base of the left wing which I covered with selo-tape. It lasts for way more than three minutes which it says on the instruction manual. It is quite tricky to get hold of even though there is only a slight breeze, but I think that after a while I will get used to it. The range is very good to, as when I was flying mine, it got caught by the wind and it was at least 100m away from me and it was still responding to my commands even though they didn't even do anything! as the wind just kept carrying it away. I would recommend to anyone to buy this! Its a great buy but just make sure there is nearly no wind!

Simple to fly (up on 3rd attempt with 8 year old). Can even loop the loop
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?

This plane flies like a dream and goes pretty fast, it has bigger and faster motors than other X-twin planes so it also goes higher. The batteries last for a long time - more than 15 minutes - when in the instruction manual says that it only lasts for 5 minutes and charges in 50. This is also untrue as it charges in around 20 depending on the discharge from the previous flight. So overall I think that this is one of the best planes out there for its price and is well worth the money lots of fun!!

I was tempted by this plane because it has 3 channels, in theory offering a greater degree of control than you get with common 2 channel toy RC planes.

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.

What a great little plane. I have flown many R/C planes and gliders in the past so I got this when a friend had one and I flew that one up up and away and thus it was never seen again as the wind took it. So I bought him a replacement and one for myself : O ) I have had mine for 3 yrs now. Its been in a few trees and nibbled by a sheep. Wheels are long gone but not bothered. I removed the rear wheel and "repaired" the smashed nose with parcel tape. The wing tips were damaged after hitting a telephone pole and wire. One again just made good with selotape to may it kind of aero dynamic...

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.
