Looks like I'm going to be selling my Firestar. I own it jointly with a friend and he's getting out of flying. I've got another airplane so this one will be surplus. I haven't listed it anywhere yet. Here's a video that shows a bit of what it looks like.

https://youtu.be/toCBMcCzrzg

I planned to do a detailed video of the bird when I listed it. It's a 1985 Firestar with a Rotax 377 and a 64" Warp Drive Prop. The fabric is original but it's well done. I punch tested it just last week and it passed. It has a BRS that still has a couple of years before it expires and a strobe. The panel is basic steam guages. It's got mechanical, heel-operated disc brakes and the original "wheel barrow" wheels. I've owned it for about 5 years. I replaced the spring washers in the gearbox when I bought it. I put a Ducati electronic ignition on it and replaced the pistons and cylinders with good used ones. I've got a lot of spares for it, including a dual carb set up that I never installed and a spare set of pistons and cylinders. It flies regularly and runs very smoothly. It's not the prettiest bird around but it's airworthy and flies nicely. I'll attach a few photos from Barnstormers when I bought the plane back in 2012, but it looks pretty much the same. I replaced the analog tach with a Tiny Tach.

I'd like to get $3,500 for it. It's located in Corning, California.
