    I understand that the FAA quit allowing the importation of 75% Storch Replicas from Columbia a while back. I have heard rumours that the replica Storches and Storch Kits are now being made in America now for sale.

    Any truth to those rumours? Anyone have a website address for American made Storches?

    THANKS!

    RagWing RW19 or RW20 (if you fancy side by side). They are plans built and you get both versions for $100.

    Viper beat me to it. Never quite understood the appeal to the Storch. The eye of the beholder I guess.

    Really? Seriously? Look at your avatar. That, with way better visibility and far better STOL characteristics. Ugly as sin? Sure? But pretty much the ultimate "aircamper", if you're into that sort of thing. It won't get you anywhere fast, but you can land almost anywhere a helicopter can. And that's really not much of an exaggeration.

    30' take off and landing roll? I'll believe it when I see it.

    I watched a 5 time champ of Valdez do his thing. 17' take-off and 27' landing was his best, if I remember correctly. Dan

    Watch some of the local boys having fun. They camped out at our field for a few days and did WV. I have landed at almost all the places on the video with my little single seat Super Cub. Ohio Bush Planes Do West Virginia 2012 on Vimeo

    The real one as a war observation plane was pretty impressive. Green house designed so you can look straight down, folding wings, STOL that impressed the allies, and a machine gun. Seems like what every one here wants.

    I flew a Stinson L-1... 30' was pretty easy, at least on landing. Placard on the panel said "Do not fly below 18 MPH".
