From the designer:

The Knockabout 46 is recognized across the country as one of the best sport flyers ever designed. Although it has been out of production for 2 years, I still get new inquiries and previous buyers calling, looking for another Knockabout 46.

The Super Knockabout is the same airplane, but enlarged to 80” wingspan and with a new semi-symmetrical airfoil. It flies just as well as the smaller size and actually lands a little slower. It has plug in wings to ease transportation and storage, and it’s perfect for large glow engines or 160 size electric power.

The Super Knockabout is now available as a built-it-yourself kit. The cowl, wing tube, landing gear and wheels are included. You supply the the pushrods and horns of your choice. This kit is made in very small quantities right here in the USA and that makes it expensive, but you cannot buy a better or more fun IMAA legal sport
plane for any price.
