• The Biplane Forum is a large global active community of biplane builders, owners and pilots. From Pitts to Skybolts, to older barnstormers, all types are welcome. In addition to our active community, our content boasts exhaustive technical information which is often sought after for projects and maintenance. This information has accumulated over the 12+ years the forum has been in existence.

    The Biplane Forum is a private community. Subscriptions are only $29.95/year to gain access to this great community and unmatched source of information not found anywhere else on the web. We are also a great resource for non biplane users, since many GA aircraft are built the same way (fabric and tube construction).

Greetings All

I have a Radial Starduster Too built by Paul Schafer. I have rebuilt the engine mount and landing gear since. She runs beautifuly on the Continental W670, has a Sandia modeC transponder, MGL V10 VHF and a little Garmin 96c to observe how slow you're going.

Testing the waters here to see if there is anyone out there who'd be in the position to buy her from me. I live in Cape Town South Africa and can take the wings off for export in my hangar.

Looking forward to hearing from anyone.

Take care

That is so beautiful. I plan on buying one when the Pitts is finished and a radial model would be great. Not ready yet though. Good luck with sale.

Paul Schafer is a good friend of mine, and we attended many fly-ins together. His airplane was one of the better flying radial powered Starduster Toos that were built. Not sure what the market for this airplane might be, but it would not be the first Starduster that has been exported, and then imported back to the states. The interest in all airplanes currently is soft, the ones that are selling in my opinion are those that are exceptional, or viewed as light sport capable, although specialty ones such as yours may very well have some appeal. Would love to see someone buy the airplane and bring it back to the states. Dave
