T.O.roll - 2350-2400rpm. Maybe you have too much prop pitch. Jerrytoggle quoted messageShow quoted text

Subject: [Q-LIST] Typical RPM on Static Ground Test?
I am a new owner of a Quickie Q2/Q200 hybrid of sorts. It has a fuel injected O-200 and I am unsure if it is developing full RPM on takeoff. On the last takeoff, I got 2,400 RPM and it seemed to climb out slow. In cruise, it would only get up to 2,500 RPM and I might have seen 2,550 RPM briefly. On the ground, I am getting 2150 RPM while doing a static ground test. Compression is excellent, spark plugs are replaced, mag check is fine, all temps seem normal, and fuel pressure is strong.
I am curious what others are getting for RPM's on the ground during a static ground test. I would also be interested in your normal RPM during takeoff.
