The Acroduster Too, originally called the Schrack- Stolp Super Starduster Too, is a scaled-down 9/10-scale version of the highly successful Starduster Too, which was designed by Lou Stolp. The Acroduster’s designer, Morgan Schrack, beefed up the little ship to withstand up to 9 Gs. He made it possible to remove the front windscreen, cover the front cockpit with a hatch cover, and add a sliding bubble canopy over the rear hole. The fuselage was also metalized back to the rear of the cockpit. Lycoming engines from 180 to 200 hp provide the power.
