From the Magazine:- A quick building, great flying sport profile design for up to .40 2-stroke engines. Aero-Duster by Fred Johnson.
The intent here is to have something that bores holes in the sky instead of your pocketbook, and not totally sacrifice the appearance. This airplane is a simple, easy to fly, minimum cost project which combines reasonable looks with near trainer flight characteristics. While the construction approaches the minimum part count possible, the flight characteristics allow very easy take-off and landings, making this a good first taildragger. A unique aspect of this type of design is the ability to visually assess the fuel level in flight, thus helping to relieve the danger of running out of fuel in flight. This airplane can be built in a short time, still be fun and desirable when complete, and helps fulfill the need for a .40 powered sport airplane with very good flight characteristics. Aero-Duster 40 is the larger version of the Aero-Duster series of aircraft, and may be the largest of this type that can be easily transported.
