I came upon a post in the Yahoo forum that I would like to share. Dan Riffee posted this in 2009 when Paul owned the company.
“If anyone is thinking about building one of the Fisher’s airplanes, Do it, you will not be sorry. Great airplanes and I love building and flying wood airplanes. I built a KR-2 in the 70’s, then a Falconar F-12, and now flying my Koala, all of them are wood. When flying a wooden airplane, you don’t have that feeling of being in a tin-can with the noise and vibration, wood is just quiet and smooth and strong. I love my little Koala and my neighbor flys the photo-type Super Koala with a R-582, it also flys great. I had so much fun building the Koala, it was sort of a let-down when it was finished, so I had to start another project.
My other neighbor has a 1947 Stampe and I have been wanting a bi-plane and Fisher’s R-80 Tiger Moth sure looks good.”
BTW– Paul didn’t ask me to write this smile emoticon
I hear this all of the time from builders and flyers of Fisher Aircraft. I am very pleased that Fisher aircraft enjoy such a great reputation as solid flyers and as generally loveable, low cost aircraft.
