Thank you for the phone number.It"s very strange they don't have aweb site. I think many builders have a lot of questions regarding Acro Sport. For example, I still don't find an exact lenght of rib chord line.:-(And some people say they used an usual M6 airfoil, others that Poberezny had modified one. Who is right who knows....

I think the sale of the Acro Sport plans is pretty low key. Basically the lady just takes plans orders and sends them out. Technical questions are redirected to other volunteer sources. For tech questions you are probably on the best web site for that.

They do have a page at acrosportaircraft.com
Most of the questions can be answered on this forum.
They do have a nice dinner at Oshkosh every year.

Thank you for this link. Frankly speaking, I don't understand why they don't use e-mail address :- ). Unfortunately, the current crisis doesn't allow me to have a nice dinner at Oshkosh

Hi I recently began the construction of an Acro II and I have drawn the wings profiles on CAD as I found the plans not very precise ant not convenient for creating a good jig. Having then compared this profile to an M6 foil (created with Winfoil), I can say that they are pretty the same. There are very small differences specially at the trailing edge, but not significant to say that it was modified.
By the way, why do you need this information ?

If needed, I can provide some drawings. E-mail me at christian@chiru.ch.

If you have questions regarding the fuselage one solution (that I chose) is to buy the pre-profiled at www.cartesiantube.com. For a small additional cost, if you can afford, you receive all the tubes profiled, bent and ready to weld. This will save you a lot of time and questions.

Welcome Yury! (I have a friend that spells his name Juri, sounds the same) I think you will find any question you have can be answered here. I have been building mine a very long time, but I have welded up 5 of these fuselage assemblies and my wings are nearly done. Acro Sport had a web site at one time but it became so littered with trash it was useless. I did the technical support for Acro Sport for some years until my job took me away from home a few years. It is a simple, design that does not have any critical surfaces and is very forgiving to fly and is a good aerobatic trainer.

Yury - My Acro Sport II has been flying since October 2007. I've found it to offer a nice performance on 180 hp for a 2-place bipe and very forgiving ground handling with its low cg and wide gear. Construction is straight forward with nothing that's particularly tricky. I'm very happy with mine.

Hi Christian,
I need this information because I'm going to build Acro Sport II. If you can provide some drawing it'll be very fine. I'm going tobegin with wings.
Thank you for the link regarding the fuselage. Maybe, it's a good way if you are a pilot not an engineer :-)
