Yes, It will be coming to America. They are still in the Prototype stage having built 5 so far and making changes needed. Larry Jolly is writing the Engilsh instructions. I spoke to Phillip Kolb about importing some to add to my kit line up and I think he has had discussions with Barry Kennedy also. He figures it will be ready around June.

Yes it will be coming to the US. Yes it is a great little built up bird. I am not sure Who will be handeling it. When I spoke to Philip about he indicated June, and was looking for about 150.00 Euros for the kit. LJ

If I did this right the at the current exchange rate 150 Euros = $295.5 USD

That smarts!

I think it is closer to $250.00 but it is a really swell little 2 meter built up. LJ

Hey...

Looking at the photos it appears that the design has a slight amount of anhedral in the center section. Or are my eyes playing a trick on me?

Either way, I really like the looks of this plane. Very sexy shape.

Neat. It looks like an all balsa Allegro Lite.

Beautiful woody!! Very nice shape. Fuselage looks like a good candidate for carbon/kevlar tow reinforcement covered with fiberglass and tinted WBPU.

Nice little airplane I have a fair amount of time on it, getting it out on hand Launches. The center section is flat so looks like anhedrahl. Fuselage is Balsa with plywood doubler. LJ
