My dream combination would be something like a Rotax or diesel powered high wing twin.

Probably not feasible to make a strutless high wing twin but I would love something that looks like a C177 with two smallish engines on the wings.

Something similar to a twin RV10 or a single engine C177 would get my interest. (Then again, my RV14 in combination with 4-6 place rentals will probably do what I need for ever)

I'd like to see an aluminum version of something like this....with the diesel engines!



Skip to the 1:00 min mark in the video to check out the fuel tank design. Sign me up for that on the RV15 as well.

if they did a 6 place, or even just a bigger 4 place I would buy it. At this point I am probably going to build an RV-10 eventually but I already know it is really too small for my family. nothing else comparable in speed/economy and technology on the market though.

LSA with tailwheel and something besides a Rotax on the nose. But it would have to be immediate to help me!
