got to maiden the Sundowner/Jett 56LX today
i went with a 9x7 to start with as i wanted to give the engine a bit more breakin time.
peaked at 18,500, backed it down to 16,800............there were a few naysayers about the prop diameter, but the 20 foot rollout to get airborne quickly changed that opinion.
once it came on in the air it was on, and i mean on for the whole flight. this friggin animal doesn't care where it's pointed.
definately as fast as what was expected.
will be trying a few different props once i get a gallon or so thru it.
the Sundowner itself really suprised me........2 clicks of up elevator and it was straight as an arrow.
everything Dub claimed about this setup is true to the point.
pattern flying is accomplished very easily. very stable airplane.
landing was much easier than i anticipated.
put another way, the master of speed at our field was aking a lot of questions..........cuz he no longer is the master
