    I tried to run the QBee today. It was about freezing out, and the crank seized up a few times. It doesn't idle down much either. It ran ok on the test stand a couple years ago with no muffler. ...

    There is a guy in our club here that has a huge biplane for launching gliders. That would be good for launching a speed plane. Kind of like the old X15 record holder.
