    Dave Johnson is Chairman of the Large Model Association (LMA) in the UK. He doesn't just organise the shows, he participates in a big way. This is just one of the superb models he regularly flies at LMA events.

    This model is powered by a DLE 222cc flat four cylinder petrol with 34 x 12 prop. All up weight is approx 40kg. The full size Bede BD-8 was an aerobatics aircraft developed in the United States in the mid-1970s. It was a low-wing, single-seat monoplane of conventional configuration, albeit very short-coupled, and of all-metal construction.

  2. Very interesting. I know that Burt Rutan worked for Jim Bede about that time. I used to visit their factory in the early 70's, in Newton, KS. However, all I ever saw them working on was the Bede 5. Is this something that Bede designed but did not build?
