    I have a J-3 with the Flo-Trol “Splates” which makes for a flat wing tip that almost no-one likes. It has a C-90 and Sensenich 76” prop, cruises 85 mph - so not a lot of speed benefit. There’s...

    Thanks very much for that easy to understand explanation - it makes sense. As both of these are low time engines (less than 300 hours TSMOH) its worrying, but it does make sense!
