Couple of other Lazy Aces in the club that have gassers they are no faster than mine a 10 or 12 pitch prop at 7 to 8000 rpm is actually slower than an 8 pitch prop at 10,000. They all have the original lifting tail no adverse effects. If speed was a problem then my vertical dive to landing should show a marked tucking under as I come straight down from altitude after releasing a glider so I can take the next one up. My speed in a dive far exceeds anything I have seen a Lazy Ace do on the flat and level.

I even had one set up as a Triplane with 3 OS .61s it would drag the thing straight up from a short roll but wasn't much faster and far less fun then the lighter single engine.
