Interesting new LSA amphibian in the works: The Icon A5


http://www.iconaircraft.com/

This is a very attractive little LSA amphib....the company is taking deposits towards the first production aircraft.

Wings fold for trailering.....very cute.

That is a slick-looking plane, and only $139k for the base model. I better start saving.

Thanks Thomas, you just blew a months pay for me (I wish, more like 30 years of saving).

To bad they haven't even flown one yet. You would think they would wait to see if it flies before an unveiling. Which I'm sure it would but they said they are 2 months out to get a flying prototype and 2010 is when they expect to be full filling orders. Wishful thinking on my end to own one.

I saw it at EAA's AirVenture this year.
IT IS AWESOME!!!!!!! Drew huge crowds.
They had an endless loop video playing of it flying. It is one sweet bird.
Someday ther will certainly be a model of it. I'd be the first to buy one.

Thanks Kinnerhatz. Now I know what to spend the first 150K or so from that lottery I didn't win. Gorgeous aircraft!

Still think it'd make a great parkflyer.

When I first saw the title, I associated it with Icon RC. Looking at the picture, it does look like a model. I had to read on and see the price tag, to realize it was a real plane.

sorry to revive an old thread but when is someone going to offer it as an R/C plane with working folding wings. Wouldn't have to unbolt the wings for storage or travel.
