If that's the most you can get out of it, it's about right. If the mixture is set well just go fly.

Depending upon the muffler, that sounds about right. If my memory serves me, my 62 would turn a menz-s 23x8 at around 7000+/- on a pretty open muffler. Not sure how much more or less load a xoar is.

THat is going to be around 29#+ of thrust according to Pe Reiver's calculator.

If you ever get the chance, or want to experiment....try a good wood or carbon 21x10 on the G62. In my opinion, the G62 turns into a much more pleasing animal when you let it rev. For me, I went from trying an NX21x10, to a 3W22x10, and Xoar 23x8....I honestly couldn't wait to get the NX back on it.

I have it in a Lanier Yak 87in Right now I am at 20 lbs. with wheel pants. I am thinking of carbon everthing plus 1 servo each wing and 1 on rudder. Only have 8 fights on her now. I do like the way she flies. G-62 does have C&H.

What do you think?

I'm sure that makes a very nice sport aerobatic plane. If you are looking for carbon parts and other ways to save weight, for the purpose of stronger IMAC or 3D ability with the same plane, make sure you can get the weight down significantly before you go spending the money. I figure you'd be ok at 17lbs, 16 would be better It depends on just how much authority you want within your style of flying. You can lose weight or add power....and when contemplating carbon parts, both ends usually cost you something. You could consider a tuned exhaust for the 62, which can unleash quite a lot of power from the engine.

I had a G62 and put a Mejlik 23x8 and didn't like it the way is revved out. Ended up selling the motor after crashing the plane and he ran the Bolly 22x10 carbon that would tach a little over 7 grand. That got broke and he threw a 21x8 on it. Maybe a 20x8, can't remember. That plane turned into a rocket. Throttle response was crisp. Hover at third throttle. Plane weight with fuel was about 21.5 pounds. This engine likes to rev.

My G-62 spins a Pro Zinger 22X10 at 7400rpm with C H Ignition and a Slimline wrap around pitts muffler. Flies my 20+ pound Stinger very well.

Chad:

You are saying a NX 21x10 is the prop.

I have a NX 26x10 on a DA 100 and really like it.

Have G62's on a 12' ws CUB with a VESS and a 101" AT 6.

Looking for a little more for the AT 6.

Thanks
Roger

PS:
Flynig the COKE plane?

In comparison to the 3w22x10 and Xoar 23x8, yes, most definitely. I would bet that the Mejzlik 21x10 or 22x10 would be better yet. So far, I think the NX is the best wood prop I have used. The engine comes alive when you let it unload.

...you could always try a race prop for the T6 Call APC....I think it is a 19"...with pitch around 13 or so. Hope you have a long landing strip though

If you want more speed on your AT 6 with a G62 try a Zinger 20-8-14 prop. I run this on my 27lb Yellow P40 with a G62 and it is fast. Look in the Member video section I have some video of this combination. Seeing is believing. Good Luck, Kevin.

A fellow club member has a variable pitch prop on his Top Flight 85" P 51, I believe a 21-6-10 and has been shot with a State police Radar gun at 105mph.

My AT came out a little heavy, 35+- lbs, so not really looking for speed, but a little more UUUMMMMPPPPFFF.

Thanks guys.

I'm a G62 lover as well.

I've tried all kinds of props. My favorites ended up the Bolly 22-10 and the NX 22-10. I always prop for AT LEAST 7000RPM on the ground and run about 300RPM rich on the high speed needle.

I never liked the 23" props for the G62. They lug the engine too much.

I couldn't tell you what to use for speed. I am mostly flying IMAC and 3D.

Consider my altitude too. My numbers probably don't mean squat to most of you guys. The club field is 5973' and the private field is 5428' I notice the difference between the 2 fields. I always have to lean at the club and richen at the private field. 500+ feet makes a difference.

Chris, you just need some fuel injection. That way you wouldn't have to tweak the needles at every field.
