This further development of the Acro-Sport is intended for unlimited international-class aerobatic competition. Though basically similar in appearance to its counterpart, the Super Acro-Sport takes advantage of a more powerful engine turning a fixed-pitch prop, an improved roll rate and inverted flight capabilities. Its two wings have almost symmetrical airfoil sections. Also added was a trim tab on the starboard elevator and a servo tab on the port side.
