640cc Uber Pimp
Glad to hear it worked out so well.Finally got out a flew yesterday. All i can say is....what a super smooth running engine! I've flown other guys 200's but only for a few minutes, so getting 5 nice 10-13 minute flights was awesome. I'm running the same Falcon 29x12 3-blade prop that I had on the 170. Very quiet unless I go more than about 3/4 throttle, then it'll rip it. Pulls hard and by the end of the day I was starting to get some throttle management going. Unlike the 170 where I add full throttle BEFORE pulling into an upline, with the 200 you can make the radius and then add throttle as needed for whatever combo is on that line.
Overall I picked up 2 pounds over the piped 170, so it came in at 43# dry. CG was very close to where I was on the 170 (batts moved from behind engine to a tray in the turtledeck behind the cockpit).
I'm a happy camper!!!
Isn't it nice when you have enough power to accelerate on an up line and you don't have to throw the airplane into everything.
