	I believe that they have this problem covered. The smaller
engine is the same size as one of the engines on a conventional twin
of the same weight, so with the big engine out they should climb as
well as a conventional twin with either engine out. Of course the
size of the smaller engine would have to be in proportion to the
slightly greater weight and engine-out drag of the 3X jet.
