Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

-- Big Mike

Well, since we're talking about muscle...I thought I'd throw up a pic of the bird I used to fly....a Boeing 747-300. She's a -200 model with a -400 wing on her and GE CF-6 power.....51,800 lbs of thrust at sea level....per engine! Heavy Metal....(think Iron Maiden) ....similar in overbearing obnoxiousness to a 67' 427 tri-power vette.

She was a real dream to fly....as long as you didn't get on her bad side.

Happy 4th of July everyone!

Lol...now you've got me wondering. I suggested cargo as it was lacking any livery, so thinking it was a cargo transport 747. What were you flying around Johnny?

I love spitfires and mustangs...and those Merlin engines!

What powers the kit?

XS

The original P-51D had the V 12 Rolls Royce Merlin engines.

The 3/4 scale Thunder Mustang uses a Falconer V-12 engine. The carbon fiber kit gives a power to weight ratio that outperforms the original North American P-51D fighter.

The engine was designed by Ryan Falconer who I understand is known for making car racing engines.

The use of a V 12 in the kit gives the Thunder Mustang a "Purr" like the original Mustang's V 12

640 HP Falconer V-12 @ 4800 rpm

Nice piece of kit to go with a nice kit!

Now, I have to ask...what's the cost of a full kit with the v12?

Serious muscle...thanks for the aircraft stuff guys.

The base kit is just under $300k. That includes everything but the instruments and upholstery. A lot more if you want "builder assistance" to do the assembly instead of doing the build yourself. Here is the website for more details:
