    Russ Hustead
    • Make & Model: Distar Lambada
      Year: 2007
      Status: For Sale
      Asking Price: $69,900

    Lambada flaperon ship mfg in 2007, SN 92-13. Category S-LSA; it can be used for commercial purposes including instruction. Only Flaperon S-SLSA in fleet.
    Hours: TTE 980 hours on 1500 hr TBO (can be extended to 2000 hrs),  Airframe 1185 hours. A five-year Rotax maintenance was performed April 2016. Fresh Annual October 2018, New Wood Comp propeller September 2018.
    In Feb/March 2014 the plane was completely disassembled, and the gel coat was sanded off and the plane was painted 2 color polyurethane paint (white and a metallic blue trim lines) which is in like new condition.
    The control panel has a Borgelt variometer and slave display on passenger side; air speed indicator, precision small altimeter, liquid compass, Garmin GTX 327 Mode C Transponder, Garmin Radio SL 40 and PS 1200 intercom. MGL Avionics iEFIS 7” Discovery lite. The ship has two main batteries with a selector switch and recharge cables installed for external charger. Having two main batteries enables you to have confidence you will get an engine restart if you have been on one battery for an extended period of time in soaring (engine off) flight. 

    Two Mountain High units for Oxygen Pilot/Passenger and O2 bottle.
    Two Bose noise cancelling headsets
    Tow hook for towing sailplanes
    15M and 13 meter tips
    2 strobe lights (beneath cockpit and top of horizontal stab), led navigation/strobe lights
    (wingtips), and led landing light.
    Galaxy Ballistic Recovery system – due for repack
    Canopy and propeller covers
    The custom shade/hangar which is portable and can be removed from KSEZ and erected at
    another airport. (no discount if you do not want it – just saves me cost of removal)
    Storage bins
    Mode C transponder tested November 2016
    All new fuel, oil, coolant lines, new sensors, April 2016. New landing gear 9/2015.
    Brand new custom seat covers in cockpit.
    All logbooks, invoices and history.

    This ship was built before Urban Air subcontracted out assembly of the tail units, two of which failed due to flutter caused by a mass imbalance at manufacture.  I would consider this airframe to be well tested and not prone to flutter at normal airspeeds.  No airframe AD has been issued by the FAA.  This is the nicest used Lambada in the fleet and this is the last time owner will reduce price.
