    Thanks for the compliments MJD.

    I know the power dive thing has been a controversial topic on this forum. I gps'd the speed of the Barracuda flat and level at 160 mph plus or minus. As soon as the...

    MJD, I basically agee with you. The plane won't do 190 straight and level. However, it is fairly clean aerodynamically and fairly heavy at 8 lb so a 400 ft power dive might add 20 to 30 mph at the...

    Ed, I'm glad the first flight went well. I got a measured 160 mph with the original Jett .90 flying a level race track pattern, so maybe the Jett 1.00 would do 190 mph in a dive.

    I'd be honored if someone wanted to preserve the design by pulling a mold.

    I was rummaging around on an old computer looking for info on the Barracuda and found this 10 year old video:

    RE: what methods du you use to balance your jet

    I tape a piece of triangle stock at the desired cg point, one under each side of the wing. I then place the plane on a couple of saw horses, bricks, or whatever works so the plane pivots on the...
