    A few years back I built a Spacewalker ll, powered by a 110 hp Corvair and it was a nice flying airplane, save for the fact that the Corvair had some reliability issues. During a visit to Sun & Fun, Serenity was showcasing a factory finished Spacewalker ll and they were asking some ridiculous price over 100K. When I told them that I had built my own they were quite rude, and after a short conversation they simply walked away without so much as a thank you. Perhaps that's why it is called a Spacewalker. See my current project on here, a Fleet model 7 biplane.

    Looks like a replica, built by some friends. That looks like the Sun n Fun museum.

    I just found their FB page and they explain on the page that the website is down, which is what led me to believe they were kaput. I'll try contacting them about plans. I'm in early dreaming stage about the next project and the Spacewalker is in the final 5.
