VTPR Model Database 2009
Being the analytical type when studying a new hobby or interest before I blow my wallet, I feel the need to explore the whole scope of whatever new disease I’m about to let in. So, in the interest of satisfying my need for ALL of the information out there, I want to put together a database of every VTPR AEROBAT plane currently available that is a serious competitive VTPR class ("aerobatic very close to the terrain") contender on the International stage. Please limit input to conventional airplane plan forms at this time. For one it will help me in the quest to choose a plane(s) and maybe help other newbies looking into this soaring window. Also it might be of help to educate Parents and their teenagers who are looking over the sport in hopes of hopping on for the ride ultimately growing the sport.
So, Im asking for your input. Specifically and more if I missed something on:
• Model name
• EPP, Woodie, Composite, Molded etc.
• Size and weight
• Skill Level required ie: Beginner, Intermediate, Expert etc.
• Ballast Y-N
• Speed range
• Flight characteristics ie: fast/slow/majestic/flippy, whatever
• Cost / Availability
I will publish this information with photos on a new website for the Aerobatic community. It would be purely for free use information purposes only as a "one stop" spot for reference. It would be updated as new information is made available to us. There will be no monetary gain on mine or any other parties part whatsoever. For you manufacturers, consider it free advertising. There could also be a section reserved for historical aerobatic models of the vintage flavor for those who have enjoyed that era. We love the whole aerobatic scene. You can consider this your SLOPE VTPR DATABASE WEBSITE.
Post your contribution here, through PM or preferably via my email ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) if you have a large amount of text to post.
Thanks and Fly On…Eric

Let me begin with one i just hooked on today. The SONIC 100 EPP. Where might this be had because i really like this planform and its wide speed range. Incredible low speed rolls in a snap...pretty neat.
Any more info would be greatly appreciated.
Correction: This is not a EPP constructed plane as shown. Misinformation was passed along and is now corrected as a fiberglass fuse, white foam balsa sheeted wing cores. SEE message #21 for the real EPP version.

The Pro Dawson Henderson on Le Fish.
This video really shows how a beginning acro pilot easily adapts to Le Fish.

You might wanna document 4 axis transmitter setups as well...
i.e camber / reflex on the throttle, spring tension mods/add ons, etc...

Maybe you could take charge of that here? I'm a acro newbie and are acro-tx illiterate at the moment.

The Vector 3 is would be good to put on there. It is the only Acro ship that i have flown that actually carries its energy. I just put a video of it doing some DS acro on the site as well.....

Here is a frontside video for those wanting a peaceful, more majestic flight plan. The plane is so good it will make even me appear a pro!

Dont know much about this one nor have i heard much report though Dawson says its a great "close in" aerobat. Seems like a great little unit to begin with and master before going to a big ship.
