Les, I bet you are starting to like that engine!  For us, the slow rpm, compared to the half vw is strange to get used to.

For the bigger prop, did you have to shift the thrust line?  Lengthen the landing gear?

Thanks.  When you have accumulated some air time it would be great to hear about the flying characteristics compared to the 1/2 VW.  I love that radial, low RPM sound!
