There is currently only 5 RV-12iS airplanes in existence. 4 are S-LSA's and one is E-AB (One Week Wonder owned by EAA)

Two of the S-LSA's are owned by Van's Aircraft. The third was delivered to its new owner in Dec. 2019 and the forth delivered in February. They love the airplanes so I doubt they have talked with anyone about selling it.....

Owner was down in or near Tucson, AZ, for sale $97,500, in January, claimed it was the first finished RV12-IS, the new owner got to choose choice of color of paint. I believe I saw it advertised in Dec in Barnstormers, owner, I believe had a last name that looked to be from India, or ?. There was also supposedly another RV-12 IS for sale, finished, for $99,950, somewhere in Florida. I saw both ads on Barnstormers. Whether or not they were real or scams, I can not say, but I did see them as RV-12IS, close to being completed or completed, for sale, at those price points, around December 2018 and January 2019. Both ads didn't stay up for long, at most 2 to 4 weeks.

I'd be fine with a E-LSA still in the raw, aluminum, and fiberglass, no paint, finished with up to 200 hours on it, 2013 or later with Dynon D1000 glass. Still looking.

Least expensive I saw was an unpainted RV-12 E-AB, maybe 40 to 50 hours on it, no wheel pants, in Eldorado Hills, CA, no S mode, no ADS-B, full Dynon D1000 Touch package, owned by a Francis Storm III. It never showed up on Flight Tracker as in the air? He was asking 58 or 59k for it, for about 3 months, before it sold, in January, 2019. N86FS

I've seen the same planes, 2012 or earlier completion RV-12's with the old style dashboard, fuse panel on the left, instead of in the center, with Dynon 180's, for sale since I first started looking middle of October 2017, probably 4 or 5 of them. A few were with non Rotax motors, Viking 110's.

http://lmgtfy.com/?q=define+dashboard Not sure what you install an EFIS in, but if you call it an instrument panel, I'd expect it to have instruments and gauges in in, not a Glass EFIS.

That is one of Tango Flight's RV-12Is Planes, and it is sold!

We do have another RV-12iS that will be ready for delivery by approximately the end of June if anyone is interested.

EFIS: Electronic Flight Instrument System.
Works for me.
Dashboards are for cars.

Guess you better tell it to Websters and Google. I don't write the definitions.
