The LP1 Aircraft Services General Aviation - Check Out The Airplane Window Molds Being Made
The LP1 aircraft services General Aviation and has the design goal of
"beating the airlines". It's slow work developing an aircraft, as you can
see from something simple like this video where we make the aircraft window
molds out of fiberglass and nomex honeycomb core. It's slow work to make
such a fast airplane! We expect a 385 mph cruise while only burning 14.gph,
either 100LL or Premium auto-gas can be used. These molds are fiberglass
but the entire aircraft is carbon fiber.
Gipson's RV-10 with Geared Drives LS1 Engine Runup
Bill Gipson of Conroe, TX runs his RV-10 with the Geared Drives PSRU and
LS1 Firewall Forward Package built by Bud Warren. Notice that the engine
runs great at any RPM. We are expecting fuel burn rates from this
combination in the range of 7-15 GPH. With torque multplication throught
the Geared Drives PSRU the performance will be astounding! Be sure and
notice that there is no gear noise at all heard with this redrive, just the
smooth throaty sound of a Corvette engine.
Larry Ketterlings P-51 Engine
Geared Drives FWF engine package for P-51 at idle and run up very
conservatively since we were testing ignition only and there was no prop
installed. Note how smoothly the engine transitions from low RPM to higher
RPM. Nice rumbling sound through the short custom Exhaust, volume increased via the collector with
baffling within to provide back pressure and guard against shock cooling
Roger Followell's Geared Drives LS1 Engine for Legendary P-51
Bud Warren starts the Geared Drives the LS1 Chevrolet firewall forward
engine package with Geared Drives PSRU prior to delivery to its owner,
Roger Followell. I heard the engine start up so I grabbed my camera...this
was the very first start and it did start first time. We are running it
gently since there is no load on the engine.

Boeing 777-300ER high power engine run
After engine start, the party starts at 01:00. Watch the whole thing shake
and rattle as the twin GE-90-115B's are being run on high power. Spool ups
at 02:00, 03:35, 04:00 with some ups and downs in between up till the end
of the video. 03:11 engine intake vortex close up. Pure music.
BD-10 Homebuilt Supersonic Jet Aircraft (2 of 2)
Note: This is video 2 of 2, Time 9:27-19:13
It was supposed to be a supersonic homebuilt jet aircraft that could cruise
at up to M 1.14 on a single GE J85 and a range of about 1,200 miles. It
also was fully capable of exceeding a climb rate of 12,000 Feet Per Minute
(achieving 10,000 feet from take off in under 40 seconds)
Unfortunately, due to the design of the aircraft structurally, there was an
accident and Jim Bede canceled the program.
The accident related to vertical tail stabilizer failure when the test
pilot was testing Mach 1.0+ capabilities. This resulted in structural
failure and a fatal crash.
The total price of this aircraft was to be well under $1 million.
(Give me 2 days locked in a room and I could have solved those issues
Anyways, if this aircraft was fixed and made sound structurally, it would
be dominating the the market today.
