    The prop is not under-pitched. Actually, it is pitched so at full throttle in high speed flight the engine turns up to about 6250 rpm. redline is 6500 rpm.
    In static or climb, engine rpm only comes up to about 6000 rpm.
    I have not measured my thrust, but it should be healthy with the 74"...

    On my Hirth powered Dominator, I can maintain S&L at between 5-10 mph at about 65-75% power. That is about 720# all up and a 27' Dragonwings rotor.
    At Bensen Days, I will slow her to about 15mph IAS and trim her out and just enjoy the view from 1000' agl, and just hang around for a while....

    Hello Curtis:
    This year is going to be real different for me. My Uncle lives just north of Mentone. I am bringing my Kolb Mark III Classic for him to fly for the next several years. And I will be returning to Tennessee with a Spizio Tuholer.

    David:

    Last year I asked the forum if someone ever gave rides to newbies. You graciously answered and I did not get to you for that ride. I will be there this year. Will you be so kind as to allow me the opportunity for a short ride this year? I am at just under 240 again.
