Default The future for twin boom trainers in Europe?



Is there a future for the twin boom trainer category here in Europe? Itīs been a while since you could by the Boomerangs or the Xcaliburs over here. Will they ever be back? I know that you can get some of the Boomerang line in the US but it it not relay feasible to import a jet kit over the pond.
The twin booms where excellent trainers and often to an affordable price.

Have you heard a reason given for twin boom models no longer being sold in Europe? It would seem twin boom models would still be a popular choice most anywhere if they are made available.

There is still the "Serpent" by IAD Model Designs.
It is a wooden twin boom trainer. Very light, lands slowly, handles well by all accounts.
I've never flown one but two or three flew at the Elvington Jet-together event in May.

Factory changes.
There is work on a new Xcalibur, but the way shipping is going who knows when we will actually see it.

My guess is 2022
