Chris,

Current Price is $16,995.00 and includes everything you need to fly. This includes an MZ 202 60 HP engine and an electric pre-rotator. This will fly up to a 225 lbs. pilot with reasonable performance (at sea level).

I don't know how many kits have been sold at this point. (sorry)

Hey ole mate Doug,
Dont forget the cost of the 'build' component. AND the fact that it is a turn key elec start. Pre Rotator
Will give 210 plus rrpm mutiple spin ups off of the lithiam battery.
I will post some video from OshKosh when i get time. This 60hp Butterfly is a little pocket rocket.

Chris check out www.thebutterflyllc.com go to the pricelist page I believe you will see all the answers
to your questions including the added cost to factory build Plus lots of highdef photos.

As to numbers sold.......I bought/built the second ultralight some 8 or 9 years ago but it was a 503 rotax no elec start, no pre-rotator. I personally know of 6 units sold, including this one going to Arizona and another being crated for shipping to Perth Western Australia.

Oh yeah we have another Monarch headed to Brisbane, Qld Australia.

Hope you had a good one Doug.

Seasons Greetings to you all.

I don't know how many are flying but I just sold the second one I have sold as a Dealer and I asked Larry how many have been sold at this point and he said he has now sold 12 of the Butterfly Ultralight models. I know he had built several of them so I suspect there are at least several of them already flying. But who knows if those guys frequent the Forum. :)
