That's a great looking little taildragger, Sean. People complain about the cost of flying, but I can't imagine more flying fun for the dollar than a total 16.K airplane with foldable wings and a trailer.

No hangar rent. Couple of gallons of mogas an hour. If I wasn't 6'4" and in the process of purchasing a totally different airplane, I'd be all over this one.

Good luck with your sale. Somebody is getting very lucky.

Rotax 532: 64 hp
Stall speed: not much faster than an ultralight
Takeoff and landing: not much longer than an ultralight

Really not much more to it than that.

Don't forget that the original Avid Flyer really wowed people when it debuted at Oshkosh. Denney more or less copied it to make the Kitfox I.

Yes, most models have higher HP. I only have 10 hours in J3s, the performance differences are minimal to me.

I would go for this, but I just bought an airplane. Having flown ultralights, the Kitfox supposedly is very similar. Ultralights are like flying dirt bikes! In ultralights I have flown in/out and landed in places you would not believe.

Do the early KitFox airplanes have the ability to accept the larger Rotax engines?

For someone who may be interested, this information may help.
