IndUS Aviation’s Hot Thorpedo performs more energetically than the Continental-powered version. When you install a non-certified Jabiru 3300, six-cylinder engine into a 58-year-old certified light aircraft, you make one lively machine out of it. This relatively new company is doing things for this CAR 3-certified aircraft that legendary designer John Thorp could never do (for one, he didn’t have the Australian Jabiru powerplant). EAA’s Sport Pilot magazine (2/05) will have a full pilot report on Thorpedo. Look for it here 90+ days after publication.
