    I for one would love to see the Pond Racer come back in the Sport Class with a set of LyCon engines and turbos.

    Can only read the beginning of that article, the rest of it is behind a paywall.

    I just made an account for the free trial, saved to pdf and disabled the account before I could be charged.

    It covers the general discussion points on the Pond Racer.

    Noble idea to save warbirds and engines, the engines picked didn't perform as expected or needed. The configuration did lend itself to several safe single engine landings, but ultimately if you have that many engine problems eventually the odds do not go your way.
