They also installed a power commander, and after tuning on the dyno got the horsepower up to 81 hp from 68 hp. They opened up the side covers and added mesh-lined vents that hint at the open air filters beneath. Additional features include lowered front forks, Progressive suspension springs, Hagon Nitro rear shocks, slightly larger than the originals, and a seat that was replaced with a hand-made aluminum tailpiece. Gold striping and lettering sit on a bluish-gray paint job. There's also gold accenting around the headlight to cap everything off.

According to David this will give you about 10 minutes of flight. Additional specs include a maximum altitude of 10,000 feet, and a top speed of 100 miles per hour.The JB-9 is small enough to fit in the backseat of your car so you could, in theory, take it anywhere.
