Adrian, that was amazing!

I am, however, a bit concerned that no one was speaking English. They were (supposedly) in Utah, so maybe it's a Mormon dialectic I'm unfamiliar with.

That's cool stuff, I love the startup sound. I must have missed the Utah part, I assumed they were overseas.

Have you built one yet Arian?

I've seen those engines before, but more in scale aircraft, not sport ones like this. If you search, you can find ones that burned up do to a poor design and bad engine placement.

That looks like something that would only take me about 3 seconds to crash and burn.

I'd be afraid to ask what one would cost to build, but it would be pretty cool. That thing's approaching 400mph, sheez!

Fred that jet looks like it was put together as crudely as some of the east European airplanes I've seen, but very effective.

Impressive. Landing that thing on a strip must take some nerve.
