RE: Post 85
Just to post some of the information, since Barnstormers links usually die after a while:
"The new RP-4 aircraft shown here, is being built to attack the World 3, 15 and 100 Kilometer Speed Records."
"Two high performance V-8 engines power the RP-4"
"tilizing NASA Unducted Fan Technology, two four-blade propellers with variable pitch hubs were constructed. The blades consist of 84 layers of prepreg carbon fiber and are 58 inches in diameter"
That information was "new" in 2007. Anyone have anything more recent on this aircraft? Did it ever even fly? I'm pretty sure it never participated in Reno.
Gee, if I only had a little more power....
