    Despite Jan's mistakes with the Subi, these seem to do well in the CH750 that you want to build....

    I spit tea all over my keyboard when I saw Harley Davidson and 125 hp on the same data plate. I can't imagine a sub 100 hp engine trying to drag a 3000 pound plane around on the backside of the drag curve. The pooch pulling the Grinch's loaded sleigh came to mind.

    Looks like a pretty nice Volksplane at first blush...

    That thing should be hanging from the ceiling of a Crackerbarrel or put the right wheels on it to run on that "twin silver line", sort of a steam-punk flying locomotive.

    Might have used a Buell engine, some of those do rather well in HP. 145 hp or so if I remember right.

    And of course, I have to finish off with a joke.

    How do we know that James Bond rode a Harley??

    His martinis were always shaken, not stirred.

    Wonder how long that STOL bird could handle the shaking of a V-Twin?

    Hmmmm......VB, you know I need an A-65 for my Luscombe project......I would eventually go broke if I hang around you too much. Still need to sell property out here soon and then I can support my bad habits again.

    I haven't begun to bankrupt you yet. We haven't even started to talk about competition soaring..

    Iskras really have a distinctive and appealing appearance compared to the other jet trainers we often see available......too bad I can't afford to feed it.....or maybe it's a good thing. It would be fun to just light it up and enjoy that mellow turbine sound and smell. I'm sure my neighbors would love it too...

    I had a Port-o-Port hangar for several yrs. in the '90's. It was a pretty good shelter. They can't be towed very far (maybe to the other side of the airport) but can be disassembled and loaded on a truck or trailer. The framework bolts together. Those springs on the center overhead door break with regularity but I found the company that took over parts support and they seem to have an unlimited supply of springs.

    They are tough too. Many years ago we pulled one out of a muddy bean field with a tow strap and a 4x4 pickup. The owner had made a forced landing after flaming the engine out doing acro and put it in a freshly planted field. We winched it up on a flatbed truck and towed it about 10 miles to the airport, washed off 50# of mud, gave it an inspection and found it was good to go. There was no damage. I've never seen a Temco TT Pinto jet up close so I'm curious if the Iskra is a carbon copy or was beefed up in any way other than engine power.
