SA-700 Acroduster 1


First introduced in 1973, the SA-700 Acroduster is a single-seat, fully aerobatic biplane suitable for engines in the 125-200 hp range. Its fuselage is an all-metal structure constructed from light alloy, and its wings are conventional two-spar structures with spruce spars, plywood ribs and fabric covering. A unique feature of the Acroduster 1 is that when the stick is pulled back, all four ailerons are raised slightly to help maintain aileron control when the airplane is stalled in a normal attitude. The opposite happens when the stick is pushed forward to aid control when the airplane is in an inverted stall.

The Acroduster uses completely separate wing panels pinned in the center with a pivot type joint and tied to the fuselage with an open stance cabane that has four mounting points on the wings.

They are always building from a kit because Osborne won't sell a set of plans without the complete materials kit to keep them company. The kit is literally a complete, but disassembled, airplane that needs only the engine and propeller. Even the motor mount and gas tank are completely finished and ready to nail in place.
