Boy.....

My experience exactly - where just about everything else has to power down to get it on the runway, the Rhino has to have a big gob of power screwed back on to do it. Never flew mine light; retracts went in from the start, and the WeMoTec/Velocity4200/big heat sink combo have had weight up from the beginning, and forced a fast learning curve with repairs inevitable. Once logged into these old brain cells, it hasn't been as comfy a process as the F-18's and F-86's have been.

But the sight of this one, on a fast sweeper leading into a fast low pass, cannot be duplicated by any other. . Worth the time and sweat.
