The Acrobatic is specifically designed as a pod and boom heli. The Trainer is the one you would use as mechanics for a fuselage. This info is published by Vario.

Sorry, but you are wrong. I have just rung Vario UK and I'm told they make a BO-105 to fit the Acrobatic. This is backed up by the web site under product 6004. It does need the alternative exhaust they also make.

I should have rung them first

As I stated in my previous post, I only quoted what is on the Vario site. If Vario says
The mechanics are not intended for installation into fuselages.
then Vario is not providing the correct info. Sorry for trying to help.

Hootowl, Don't take offence, I appreciate anybody trying to help. Maybe Vario will 'tweak there web description?

The skycraine sounds like a VERY good idea, I'd be WELL up for that !!

i have bought a vario huey im goin to fit my acrobat in there. just looking this evening to what modifications need to be made. im thinking it maybe just a small mod to the wood work. the frame of the acrobat is a little too tall so will have to lower the fixing points by about 5mm.

Yep, the Aircrane is a sweet machine Ive been flying mine for about 5 years now. Rbush take advice about Vario's from people who own them.. A good way to know that is to look in their gallery.

I have had an Acrobatic for a few years now. Vario has always said the Acrobatic is not recommended for fuse applications. Kinda weird that they contradict themselves by offering fuselages that accept the Acrobatic mechanics. I'm not a scale modeler so my response was based on Vario's recommendation. What a rude bunch.

its all cool hootowl, vario catalog does say not for pod and boom, but that was before they designed the fuselages that they now offer for tha acrobat.

I do, I've owned 3 Vario benzin's (2 in my gallery), a Vario Skyfox Allouette II (also in my gallery), and have attended the UK Vario south fly-in for the last 7 years.

I was simply not aware of a fuzz that fitted the Acrobatic. The last I was told, they didn't make one, so this is why I posted the question. Having now rung Vario, it seems they do now make at least one direct fitting fuzz.

The reason why I would want to put an Acrobatic in a fuzz is because I don't like the ever shifting C of G to be found on the Benzin trainer due to the fuel level. As I have said, I've owned 3 trainers, and worked on / flown a few Acrobatics. Acrobatics do not have this problem, so would be a more balanced frame for scale.

Anyway, the answer is yes, the BO-105. Thank you for your help.

I was looking at the mechanics on the Vario site for the Air Crane. It looks like you need a couple of add-on plates at the rear above where the tail boom would have gone. Also the bottom plate looks different. The rest looks the same.

What is different is the take off for the tail drive up top, and the gear ratio. The side frames and base plate are the same.

Skycrane certainly sounds like a good idea Rob!!

Would make a very interesting model I think esp with extra detail added (assuming you wanted to add extra detailing of course!)

Have you got a Acrobatic then??
