SORRY, ONLY IN GERMAN!
The delivery of series product of Acrostar XL has started and here are some additional tipps / information.
The wing tube which is included in the kit, was changed due to my wish. More specifically the wall thickness has been enlarged to get a stronger tube. The new tube is also used by the manufacturer for another airplane. So It could be possible that you need to cut the tube around 10mm.
I recommend to modify the tail wheel as shown on the picture. Just one washer and no lock-nut between the bracket and the wheel.
If you use long servo arms, it is useful to install the ball link below the servo arm. Otherwise the ball-linkage will touch the servoarm if you have big deflections.
I recommend to tape all control surfaces with flexible, transparent surgical tape.
The result is a much better effect of those functions.
But until I had it in my hands, it was a very long way. It took more than one year until the radio was completely finish. I think with the gold color it describes the quality and valence of this product best.
"Before gilding all aluminum parts, they have to be polished to a high level gloss and after that galvanic nickel-plated. The quality of the aluminum polish is decisive for the final result. Finally the galvanic 24 carat gold plating takes place."
Noch bis Ende April läuft beim VTH-Verlag die Adler-Wahl 2019. In jeder der 9 Kategorien wird der FMT-Adler verliehen.
Bei den Foamies ist die RT ULTRAmate EPP nominiert, in der Kategorie Kunstflug der Acrostar mk2 60E.
Ich würde mich freuen, wenn zufriedene und überzeugte ULTRAmate- und Acrostar-Piloten sich 5 Minuten Zeit nehmen und für meine Modelle abstimmen würden.
Es gibt tolle Preise zu gewinnen 😉
Die beiden Berichte aus der FMT von Nils Brückner gibts hier nochmals zum Nachlesen!
On saturday, 23rd of March, Mr. Hacker invited to his 20-year-jubilee of Hacker Motor in Ergolding.
A great event with famous guests, interesting guids through the company and an exhibition of their projects in RC-business and industry made this day to one of the highlights in 2019.
Even the weather was perfect with a deep blue sky and warm temperatures, maybe also a merit of the past 20 years.
What started in the loft of his families´ house is nowadays a mid-sized company with almost 40 employees and projects around the world.
For more than 10 years I am Pilot for Hacker Motor. Since my beginning I trusted in the products from Bavaria. When I look back, that was probably my best decision I made in my rc-career. I am more than proud to be part of this team since that long time.
For some time Hacker Motor is also the exclusive distributor in Europe for my RT DESIGN models- nothing better could happen to me!
At this jubilee last week we took the chance to introduce my latest design coming this summer the market: Acrostar mk2 XL – the big brother of our 6S successor came to the market last year.
(More information about this plane coming soon.)
Again congratulations to Rainer Hacker for 20 years of Hacker Motor GmbH!
I´m looking forward to the next 20 😉
After the huge success with RT ULTRAmate EPP in the past year I really wanted to present a colorscheme for this foamy which means so much to me and is part of my aeromodelling story!
We realized the scheme of my legendary 2,85m Ultimate, which I flew many years on airshow with great fun and good promotion for myself.
ULTRAmate 2019 edition
Kurz vor Jahresende sind zwei tolle mehrseitige Testberichte vom Acrostar mk 2 in deutschen Fachzeitschriften erschienen.
Ralph Müller hat den Acrostar für die FlugModell Ausgabe 02/2019 getestet, Nils Brückner für den Branchenprimus FMT Ausgabe 01/2019.
Beide Autoren berichten ausführlich über den Bau, mögliche Modifikationen, aber auch das Original oder die unterschiedlichen Antriebsvarianten.
Beim Test der FlugModell ist mit mir ein kleines Interview zum Acrostar, seine Geschichte und wie es weiter geht, dabei.
Beim Test in der FMT hat Nils Brückner den Cockpitausbau näher beschrieben und sogar über die FMT einen PDF-Plan zur Verfügung gestellt, den Link zur FMT-Website gibt es hier!
Beide Testberichte sind absolut lesenswert- vielen Dank euch Beiden!
Nun danke ich allen Besuchern meiner Website und wünsche einen guten Rutsch und alles Gute für 2019!

At the Rotor Live Helicopter fair in Iffezheim, I discovered for the first time the innoflyer light system, which was new in the product line of Hacker Motor. I became impressed by the innovative, simple and efficient handling. During dinner with Andreas Golla from Hacker and Christoph Raible from innoflyer we started speaking about my special project, the turbo KARAT.
As the Turboprop and the lighting are both from Switzerland, I decided to adjust the color scheme of the Ptrouille Suisse so it matches the KARAT.
The plane now has about 30 flights and everything still works fine.
At the end not the most spectacular plane I’ve ever built, but definitely one that I have the most fun with!
And just the worlds first F3A turboprop biplane – turbo KARAT.
Many thanks to Philipp Rösner for another great video of turboKARAT!
The title is very special to me because it was the first time I took part with my own designed KARAT biplane.
The formation of the national Team next year is not certain yet and will be planned by the federal commission of the DAeC.
Die first part sets for KARAT biplane have arrived and go straight to their customers.
But before I would like to show you some impressions.
The weight of all plane parts incl. battery plate, servo plate, motor plate, landing gear and pants is around 2150g.
Prices and delivery time on request or via our distributors.
