Looking at kits again now that I am in a position to build and my searching has narrowed to the same suspects as years past. Such as Velocity, Tango, Rv8, and Glasair II. All of these were reasonably priced with the Rv8 being significantly cheaper. Anyway come to find out you can't actually buy a Glasair I, II, or III any more since Advanced Aero bought the line up. In the process of ditching fiberglass for carbon fiber the price has skyrocketed to around 100 thousand dollars for the airframe only. This is probably old news to most of you but I just don't understand why they would do this. Used to have a niche for fast and cheap, now they have to compete with the likes of Lanceair in a much smaller market. I guess its more rambling than a question... Is Velocity the last affordable retract kit out there?
