Have to be the exact opposite of what would be the appropriate power source. Low thrust engine, High drag plane. Doesn't make much sense. The fuel consumption/ Km would be horrendous. Nev

I think its just a case of "because I can" rather than any practicality.

Dunno, Nev...depends on engine size, and whether the thought of an endless succession of high G loops appeals to you??????

And you would have to constantly change your home field.

I bob, the thrust figure would be pathetic. Unless a jet does speed (moves) there is no real power. W = FxS The big break through in Jets was the turbofan. High bypass engine. Nev

That type of flying machine needs thrust= pull. Jets don't have it, especially a pure jet (without bypass) Draggy machines have a great capacity for absorbing power, if you try for speed when the design is not that way orientated. The geometry of a powered parachute (low thrust line) means the vehicle will climb if the thrust is large and I guess you could get into a bit of strife that way if you overdid it. Nev

19 reg requires a propeller ... 95.10 does not

Put one on the dash...doesn't have to be a big one. Something about 2" diameter should do it.
