Top recorded speed so far is over 500 mph!
At 500+ mph the aerodynamic and G loads on the airframe are considerable. In order to tolerate the high stresses, the airframe has to be robustly constructed and at over 40 lbs. there is enough composite material in one of these planes to build several "normal" slopers.
Owning and flying one of these ships is a privilege in a class all its own.
Here is a short video that shows a little of the D130’s performance.
Currently this plane is available only via special order. Please contact us if you are interested.
