Thanks for the encouragment guys.
Went to the airport this morning and set the prop pitch from 14.5 to
12.5. Filled it with about 7 in the main plus the header. Reflexed the
aileron up a bit for takeoff and hit the throttle. Got in the air
quickly and stayed in ground affect and then climbed out at 110 indicated.
Had about 5 lbs boost and climbed at 1500 fpm at around 1,000 lbs. My
speed ended up being 160 indicated at 3150 rpm. I still need a bit
finer, but I will stay with this for now. Once I fly some more I will
set the prop to give me 3500 rpm with the waste gate off and 4,000 plus
with boost. I think my prop is a 56 inch three blade warp drive ground
If it is nice again tomorrow I will install my rad cowl and see if I
still get the right amount of cooling and hopefully a bit more speed.
I find the reflexor very sensitive. Tomorrow I am also going to bring
my digital smart level and lay it on the passenger consol to see if I am
close to the water line with my rigging.
