    A McCauley 7438 pulling a C85 stroker on a non-electric Cub is an outstanding combination.

    So I’ve been told, I’d never run that since it’s not a legal prop on a C85 :-)

    I’d like to see it successful and put the heat on P&W and their antics in the turbine market. PT6 parts and pricing are getting past the point of stupidity.

    Put your hand on the stick with your thumb standing straight up. Every control surface your thumb is “pointing” towards should be deflecting up when you point at it. Easy control check.

    If it’s not making metal and the oil temp/pressure is good, it should be fine if that’s where it likes to run. Compared to it’s previous life, I’m sure that Stearman isn’t getting worked too hard.
