I am looking for an operating manual for subject airplane. There are a couple of things I need to know before I fly the plane, i.e. stall speed, VNE speed. All help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Mike

Vne is easy to find... Ask Kolb about "your" model...

Firestar II Vne is 90 mph
The Stall... You can figure out... First flight is all about Going up...

APPROACHING stall... Figure that speed times 1.5 , and land...

Later you can refine the speed to 1.3 times...

When doing this... FAA wanted me to have the CG in the Forward half of the range...

It wasn't easy getting it at 51%... I needed to re-plumb the fuel and only use the forward tank

Plus I had to add 17 lbs in the nose...
