Anyone here have any knowledge/comments on the Aerolab Lo Camp? From the info I've received it looks like a pretty fun airplane and should not be a very hard build. From what I've read, there's only one flying right now.

Aerolab LoCamp is currently marketed in the USA by GoldenAgeAeroworks.com out of Spring Green WI. Here is the shop pictures for your review

It looks like a Walker Spacewalker modified with a radial engine.
aka. Warner Revolution II.
Jesse Anglin designed the first Warner Revolution and that evolved into the Sportster for larger pilots.

Dear Riggerrob: You are just partially correct. The LoCamp by Aerolab is an Italian design. The man behind that plane is Francesco Rizzi (francesco.rizzi@graficom.it) and definitely he was inspired by Jesse Anglin who was inspired by Yakovlev UT-2 Yakovlev UT-2 - Wikipedia and Ryan ST Ryan ST - Wikipedia. That AeroLab design got closer to the roots by utilizing radial engine (Originally Rotec 2800 then Rotec 3600) Spacewalker has not been designed for that powerplant at all. With the time some builders have used the Rotec for Spacewalker

All three "original" designs with Radial Engine have been using chromoly tubing + fabric fuselage with wood design wings. The ASTM based version of LoCamp that was originated in the USA has aluminum wings construction finished with fabric cover over
