    CFM Shadow Streak for sale. Acknowledged to have some of the best flight characteristics of any ultralight, the aircraft has done approx. 1250 hours, and requires some cosmetic work. The engine is a Rotax 582, which is almost out of hours. Hangered at Ballarat, Victoria, Price $13,000.00 Must make room for the new Thruster.

    Tell us about the new Thruster, with photos, asic46. Maybe start a new thread in the Thruster section seeing as how it will be off topic here.

    It's too shiny for a Thruster!!:smile:
    I'll be interested to hear how it performs asic46. Where is it coming from?

    It looks like a sweet aircraft, very streamlined in comparison to it's predecessors. Pity it doesn't have a tail wheel!!!
    Good luck with getting it into the country.

    Don't think cabin heat would do much good in my Thruster:cheezy grin:
    I do have some doors for it in the hangar though - they need modifying first, when I get the time......

    I'll check it out the next time I am at the airport (probably Saturday), and I'll let you know.

    Hi Blow, I think that the aircraft has been sold, though as they say nothing is over until the fat lady sings, or in this case the money is in my bank ! In answer to your questions, the 582 is not oil injected, and although I have not taken the wings off myself, the manual says that it is easy, and I have seen videos in which it takes 2 blokes about 2 minutes to remove a wing. Cheers !
