Mark iii - 18 gal?

Postby enewmen » Fri Oct 16, 2020 2:37 am

Hi all.
I noticed there is no more 18-gal option for the Mark iii. Discontinued? On the Kolb website, there is also no more Mark iii Xtra. It's now called the Twinstar Mark III 2020 and a few more inches less width than the xtra.
I was looking for a kit that's an inexpensive 4-stroke (< $50k total), STOL, quickbuild ~300 hours, minimal side-by-side, and can fly out of a farm near 400 miles if needed. Maybe Kolb has that kind of plane or am I going down the wrong path?
There are many kits with a long range, but they take a lot longer to build and cost a lot more - mostly because of the engine and avionics.
Any ideas? I may need to rethink everything and build a larger E-AB plane.
I wanted to post here before calling Kolb.
Thanks!
