The Starduster Too is the two-place member of the Stolp family. Though not specifically designed or offered as an aerobatic airplane, this graceful flyer can handle the stunts when in competent hands. Stolp recommends the 180-hp Lycoming with a constant-speed prop as the optimum powerplant. The fuselage is welded-steel tubing with wooden fairings and a fabric covering. The wings use two spruce spars, ribs of quarter inch plywood, and a fabric cover. All four wings carry ailerons.
