This single-place member of the Stolp family is the younger brother to the two-place Starduster Too. The Starduster is intended for the 125-hp Lycoming engine, but it has been built with engines ranging from 85 to 170 hp with a constant-speed prop. Good visibility, very tame stall and landing characteristics, and something called “charisma” are all traits of the Starduster.
