Up for bid is my Fisher Flying Products, 404, biplane. I have owned the plane for 10 years and it.
UPGRADES, THAT I ADDED, plus their cost:1. GSC ground adjustable propeller. Just had it"s every 5 year factory inspection $420.002. Heavy duty tail wheel assembly $120.003. Coil spring landing gear. Replaces the bungy cords. $250.004. Front prop balance and rear crank balancers. These are original Balance Master"s, $140.00 not the cheap knock offs.5. Lifetime guaranteed starter housing. The original Rotax housings cracked on a $350.00 regular basis, so I bought an expensive, machined housing. ------------- $1,280.00
INSTRUMENT PANEL COMES WITH:1. Airspeed indicator2. Altimeter3. Compass4. Turn and bank indicator5. Clear glass and metal fuel filter6. Tiny Tach. with hour meter (on wing brace)7. Regular tachometer (in dash)8. Fuel shut off valve9. Clock10. Dual CHT gauge11. Dual EGT gauge12. Mag check switch13. Kill switch14. Start button15. Fuel primer
MODIFICATIONS THAT I MADE:1, Raised the landing gear by five inches. I fly off a grass strip and the original gear only put the prop 8 inches off the ground. If the grass got high it became a lawn mower2. Replaced the single piece of plexi wind screen, with a three sided one that looks like a WWI fighter plane would have3. Custom metal cowling. Again to make it look old plus increase cooling efficiency. The originally cowling was also used on Fishers Piper Cub and a Cub cowling on a WWI fighter looked a little strange. The original cowling comes with the plane4. Quick change fuel tank *5. Removal instrument panel covering *6. Removal firewall top panel *
* Prior to these modifications, if you wanted to work on the instruments, fuel tank or behind the firewall, you either had to crawl upside down into the cockpit or spend hours removing the top panel and wing supports. Now it only takes minutes.7. Replaced metal instrument panel with a custom made wood one8. Wrapped the stick in leather9. Covered the top sides of the cockpit with brown vinyl covered padding.
