The ACRODUSTER TOO SA750 is a fully aerobatic, two-place machine stressed to plus & minus 9 G's. It has modified symmetrical wings and is capable of matching aerobatic performance with any two-seat airplane now flying.

The optimum engine is the fuel-injected 200 HP Lycoming, with constant speed propeller. The prototype cruises about 160 mph, climbs 2300 fpm, and stalls at 55 mph. Although it has a comparatively sharp stall and sensitive control response, wings can be maintained in the level attitude with rudder alone or with aileron. This with stick full back by reducing power to idle and zero climb until stall is obtained.

An experienced taildragger pilot would have no trouble flying the Acroduster Too, but should get both cockpit and taxi time to acquaint oneself with the airplane before take-off. I recommend that a pilot without taildragger time obtain some dual instruction in something like a Cessna 140 or Starduster Too.

Construction follows traditional biplane practices with steel tube structure and spruce wing spars. Ribs are plywood with cap strips.

All materials are available from Stolp Starduster Corporation, either in kit form or as raw materials. Many items, such as gas tanks, turtlebacks, etc., are available and ready to install.

Your needs and orders will receive prompt attention.
