REFLECTOR: Brian Questions
What kind of performance are you realising?
Highest so far 187KIAS. (RM Digital display)
Gallons per hour?
12.4 on climb out 9.9 to 10.5 Cruise. (AFA-10)
Maximum level flight speed?
Haven't gone there as yet, the highest I have had it is 24/2500 at 9500ft
However, Tom (Test Pilot) said he got 201KIAS on his second flutter test
I usually try to climb out at 120KIAS to obtain better engine (CHT)
cooling. At that
rate I am getting between 750 - 800 FPM.
If you are trying to obtain maximum performance of Velocity Standard Elite
with Franklin Engine, I am the wrong person to ask these questions,
I tend to fly very conservatively. Maybe one of you guys that have pushed
to the ragged edge can answer Brian's questions.
Are you using the MA-5 carburetor?
One more: Have you noticed any cracks on your cowling wing
Yes, Just where the trailing edge of the wing root flange meets the flange
that bolt the
PS, Brian I need one of the the new pressure relief spring. I'm still
using the three washers
behind the old spring. Oil temp 210F on climb out 195F cruise.
