been looking at projects to build, kind of gravitating toward the Excalibur. In the meantime a Kolb Firestar II just came up for sale. anyone have experience or feedback plus and minus's? the price seems very reasonable, and i'd have something to fly while i was working on my kit!

Great airplanes. Simple, solid, good handling. I only flew a FSII once; it was a rocket ship compared to the Cuyuna powered Ultrastar I owned at the time.

The Firestar will be a hotrod compared to the Excalibur. Folds down very small. Faster and probably climbs better. The Kolbs have heavy ailerons. No experience with the Excalibur.
