Default Speed Machine

Considering it says performance specialties on the wing, I can only believe this plane was meant for a pair of screaming Long Stroke Nelsons.

Would love to hear and see this thing fly.

Way cool.. why use one when you can have two?

I guess you could tame it down with a pair of throttled 60LX's... [8D]

I don't suspect someone with "Performance Specialties" on his wing is going to put Jetts in there

Would be interesting to see a flame out of one motor at top speed.

Big D:

That looks like something only Dave N. would come up with from somewhere, very interesting. There are not many of us out here with twin experience since very few twins have been kitted until the past seveal years. Yes, in my mind eye, I can see and hear two Nelson long strokes going at it in there, two older standard engines would be a lot of fun too as long as your fuel shut off system is good that is. Would be supprised if you can remain in reasonable control once one is out of fuel, or simply flames out, ok maby with you flying, but would give you less than 50/50 in getting her down in one piece with no engine throttle control. Scrape or paint the "Nelson"stuff off there and follow MJD's exceptional advice and add two Jett 60LX's for a real winner. Or, mail the thing to me and I will guarantee to put two in it within hours of arrival, and maden the next day. Am sure you could hear those puppies cranking up all the way to your place.

How about some specs on this thing, and who developed it just for grins. That appears to be 2 each QM2 fuses on a QM2 wing. If one decent QM2 and fresh Jett 60LX = around 200 mph, what ya think 2 may bring. Gotta go, my heart rate is getting way to high just thinking about it. Ohooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

So where did the picture come from?

I want to be there when it's fired up for the first time.

The little amount of dirt I can find about it, is that it is owned by Mike Del Ponte and at least 10 years old.

Never flown, as far as I know.

I would think two Jett .35's would be the ticket. Maybe not insane fast, but more than most could handle.

If you hold full aileron towards the dead engine (if you can figure out which one that is on a 200mph airplane spinning toothpicks at 28k) you should be able to climb like a monocopter, and perhaps by modulating the aileron you could simply maintain altitude until the other one quits. Or maybe gently bring it down to the tall grass and.. well, okay, I see the problem.

Anyway you should have at least 73 milliseconds to figure out which helpful control inputs are needed before it piles in. That's assuming the fuel cutoffs don't work of course, but aren't those for wimps?

Ohhh, how I wish this was the case

Its a real plane, and someday will make a flight, just not sure by who..

Thats a lot of money tied up into 1 flight.

I just hope I'm there when it happens!

I think you would need 2 people running starters to get that going so you don't run out of fuel early on one engine.

I think it was Lyle who had the plane at the 1996 nats. Not sure if he built it. Was in the pits..... we were drooling over it

Somewhere at home I have some photos .... will have to dig them up.

(ok... so who flys N80T ? --- trying to think... Drew Telford... ?? Im pretty sure it was not Cliff.. )

Plane was built from Lyle Larson's Strega QM40 that was popular 10-12 years ago

If two engines are good, three must be great!

FOUR .60LX @ $350.00 = $1400.00

Keep this up and Dub will be working saturdays to meet the demand.
