Put a couple of flights on the plane this week. Flys great, only issue with the way it flies relates to engine thrust. Believe I need some upthrust. In straight and level flight when you punch the throttle, it dives down pretty hard. The GP-76 is an absolute monster of a motor, I look forward to it breaking in.

Nice looking plane, do you keep it assembled for transporting?

Do you think this thrust issue is a fw miss drill marks / angle issue from factory.

In your post 31 first picture your spinner looks low.

No, I take the wings off. Its very easy to assemble at the field. I noticed the spinner being off as well. It was lined up exactly to the marks, so maybe an angle issue?

Put one of these on backorder. When it gets in I am planning to setup a DA70 with the 2in1 MTW canister.


Question - has anybody installed a can in one yet?



Looking at the canister install diagram on Pilot's website, it seems like the 60mm drop will be close enough to work, but the MTW 110 may be too long for the tunnel... I have a feeling I may have to do some modifications...
