Fisher 202 Koala
Well established Fisher Flying
Products has reproduced the flying qualities of many classic
airplanes in structurally sound and extremely affordable aircraft.
These ultra light and experimental aircraft have proven aerodynamic
stability and desirable flight characteristics.
From the company’s modern plant in Edgeley, North Dakota, the
components for 15 classic replicas are manufactured by trained and
experienced craftsmen. Research and development for new aircraft is
on-going. Fisher Flying Products’ entire line of aircraft is sold
throughout the United States and in 30 foreign countries.
All models are available in two build-it-yourself forms:
A standard construction kit, which offers the builder the experience
of assembling the entire aircraft from pre-cut, shaped and slotted
wooden pieces, machined hardware, a formed fibreglass cowling and
aluminium fuel tank.
A quick-build kit which contains a number of pre-fabricated
components in addition to the standard pre-cut and formed parts
found in the standard kit.
Both kits come complete with easy-to-follow instructions and the
industry’s finest full scale-full size blueprints. These blueprints
allow the builder to essentially build the aircraft right on top of
the blueprints with standard household tools.
Standard construction kits can be completed by the average builder
in 400–500 hours and quick-build kits reduce the construction time
to 200–300 hours.
Flying the FP-202 Koala
A steerable tail wheel and optional electric start are your first
indications that flying the Koala is as easy as owning it. Optional
brakes assist in shorter take off and landing rolls.
Even at the slowest speeds, the Koala maintains the stable flight
characteristics that make for safe, enjoyable flights. Large 8-foot
ailerons provide confident roll control at high speeds, and stall
speed is an enviable 26 mph.
While your engine takes you up at a 900 to 1400 feet per minute
climb, it also emits a relatively low noise level, effectively
reduced by Lord mounts, tuned exhaust and geared reduction drive.
