    Sounds like you have been fortunate to fly a couple of lightweight fun airplanes. That never gets old.

    Guess I will be the one to go against the grain. Keep it as light and simple as possible. A carb is going to be lighter and less complex. Then fly the stuffings out of it.

    Vented to inside and based on my GPS airspeed is within 1 MPH. Keep it simple. You are not building a rocket ship to go to Mars, just a 100 mph Cub. Just my opinion and all that rot.

    Be sure to enlarge the locker access. One of the few faults with those floats.

    Thank you Stuart. I know mine works at idle which is about 650 RPM. Perhaps they only guarantee it to 900.

    I believe it says it cuts off at about 450, which is actually lower than my idle so I can’t really say. With the lightweight composite props it’s pretty hard to get the idle real low because there’s...
