Designed by Homer Kolb, the Twinstar Mk.III uses a steel spaceframe cockpit and 14cm diameter dural tube for the tail boom and spars. The ribs are dural tube, riveted and gussetter. The 1997 kit price, including Rotax 582 engine, was US$12,484.

The Mark III Classic, with the aerodynamic expertise of BarnabyWainfan, became the Mark III Xtra while retaining the STOL performance of the Classic. The Mark III Xtra, along with all Kolb aircraft, has folding wings and tails which allows for easy set-up and take-down. The tail folds up and the wings fold back. The process can be done in about 15 minutes. No tools or brackets are required. Everything stores right on the airframe.


The LSA Mark III Xtra comes with an assembly manual, including 3D illustrations, technical drawings and step-by-step procedures.
