You just never know what you are going to find on the flightline at the annual Florida Jets event in Lakeland Florida. Hosted by Frank Tiano the father of the Top Gun Scale Invitational, Florida Jets brings together the cream of the crop from the Jet and turbine engine industries!
Model Airplane News contributor Rich Uravitch was on scene and he covered the event for our upcoming July 2013 issue. As for this impressive aircraft, Rich says:
“Goetz Vogelsang flew a slick looking model that, at first glance, makes you ask “why”? It’s an aerobatic, all composite, turbine-powered BIPLANE! It’s called the “Quantum” and he describes it as “a Christen Eagle on steroids.” I’m still not totally convinced of its esthetic qualities, but the performance is remarkable and a “mono” conversion makes it a single winged sport jet in minutes! Neat concept, certainly will appeal to the biplane purists out there!”
