Part# 01-00596


This is the best-known biplane across the country. It is a two-place machine, large enough for two and baggage, fast enough for cross country if you want to really enjoy life, and without question the prettiest biplane ever built. It is rated +/- 6 G, so most aerobatics can be performed. Powered with engines from 125 to 375, the 180 and 200 HP Lycoming are most popular. First flown in the 1960s, there are more than 1,000 flying. This is what flying was meant to be.

    They look just fine. I am not ready to install them yet so, they may or may not fit, Well see. I wish Aircraft Spruce (AS) had taken a picture of them before they sent them to me so they can post them on their website. AS is lacking in photos and product descriptions on their website - at least for Starduster Too parts.

    Overall the design is good, but the plans are of low quality. They are copies of copies and are not of top quality. In addition the plans refer to being drawn out in AutoCAD. These are not the quality that should come from a CAD printout. The other issue is there are no plans for the engine mount. This is left up to the builder to design? I was also expecting some mention of the canopy that is part of the options listed on this site, but I do not see that either. You can likely build this aircraft from these plans if you hired someone to design an engine mount. I have personally flown Starduster Toos and know them to be a wonderful airplane, I am just disappointed with the plans.

    Terrible. There is NO sheet on building the engine mount. 50% of the parts lists sheets do not have a title. This makes matching them with the drawing sheet more difficult.
