Talk about like minds thinking alike!

Look at the Goony Cobra. 239' altitude, with a Dv of only 3 FPS, and flies off a 36" x 1/8" rod. Not an upscale, but a downscale, and slightly Goony to boot!

Addendum: OOPS! I didn't remember (or notice) this until after I posted the above. Goony Cobra only uses one A10-3T. A cluster of three produces a shredder with a Dv over 35 FPS.
