Fisher FP-404

First flown in 1984, the FP-404 is a throw-back to seat-of-the-pants flying, complete with minimal instruments and bare-necessity controls. A single seat biplane amateur-built biplane, the 404 is a version of Fisher Classic, featuring short wings, full-span ailerons and a semisymmetrical airfoil. Geodetic wood construction and additional bracing contribute to structural strength, enough to withstand higher Gs than most lightplanes.
For experimental models, a 50 horsepower Rotax engine is more than enough power for 800 feet-per-minute climbs. The plane is as responsive as you are aggressive.
By 2004 350 had been sold.
