Default RE: Really want to go fast??

I would say more damage is done to q40 type planes by landing, than any other reason. They do glide quite a while and it takes a little practice in learning how far to go out before making your turn to final.

Trying to make an approach at 1/2 throttle is still going to be too much. You will be surprised at how long, even a zoomer, will glide without power after going 160 mph+.

With the availability of the Nelsons, I'd skip the K&B and the ST X40's. I doubt the Nelsons will stay above $200 in the near future.
