Model Airplane News contributor Rich Uravitch was on the scene when this impressive and highly unusual aircraft first took flight. Flown by Goetz “Doc” Vogelsang, this slick looking jet is the first true turbine powered biplane we’ve ever seen. Fully aerobatic, the all composite Quantum is like a Christen Eagle on steroids. Built from a Tomahawk kit, the prototype was developed and the molds made by Harry Behringer. Having impressive performance the Quantum has a span of 79 inches,  a length of 94 inches and weighs in at 27.5 pounds!
