The Auster J5F Aiglet had a slightly shorter wing than other Austers, and larger ailerons as it was built as an aerobatic trainer. Ivan's version does very good aerobatics on low power due to the Eppler 195 airfoil and its light weight. In 2011 Ivan installed the Astro Flight Geared 25 inrunner brushless with 13x10 prop. It will just about go vertical with a 4S LiPo pack. Not quite "Auster like," but huge fun.
