That's seems appropriate - also right out of Mel Brooks' Spaceballs....

I think this is the perfect solution for people who want high horsepower motors and reliable power - just put two different engines in

Kind of like a hybrid. The big motor is only used when accelerating.... Once on plane it shuts down the big engine and uses the more economical smaller motor. Wonder if it has regenerative braking? Or maybe the prop on the big motor while free spinning, creates energy that is stored in a Capacitor of sorts. THen there is a reserve of burst energy when needed....

Love it how it's recently serviced, yet the tire on the trailer is completely shredded... Apache Brave is right, would be a "Brave" man who bought that...
