Me neither, I used to see one at Old Warden aerodrome most of my ill spent youth, owned by a now sadly departed very prolific RC model designer and columnist called Peter Russell. I even built my first low wing trainer when I was 10 with a covering scheme copied from it.

To Matt Gunn, it a Stolp Starlet, not a Starlet Stolp.

I'd love to get into giant scale but don't think I'm quite proficient enough as a pilot.
2 years with foamies on electric just doesn't quite compare to the big boys...
but how does the cost of building a Starlet compare to buying this type ARF???

I Think you would be quite surprised at how easy the "big boys" airplanes fly.
