While there has been significant interest in this design the market does not seem large enough to support production runs of 50 to 100 units per year. That kind of volume would be needed for the aluminium production method to keep costs down.
I have done some design work on more radical biplane and multiplane concepts and it seems to have lots of potential for very high performance racing designs.
