I really need to point something out,
Field elevation, Bryan, Brett, Tuny and I all flew YS at 8500Feet, Chip flew there too, the YS engines DID NOT lack any power, and the reduced aerodinamic effects are equal to all airframes, and the electric brakes also changed.
The YS175 can idle at 1200RPM, it is very slow for an IC engine of its class.
NO LIFT ON DOWN LINES???????? what do you guys think makes ALL aircaft pull to the canopy on the down lines??? so Bernoulli was right but wrong if would fly pattern??? come on....
I have been flying YS for many years, and also fly my Amethyst with a Hacker C50-14XL Competition Wolfgang Matt Limited Edition, it is not a weak mottor and the low end torque is nothing or inexistent compared to the YS, as I regularly fly both.
Ys as the low end torque or mid range, without having to make a throttle curve, on electric after you make that curve is when yopu have to torque on the botom, at lest on my setups.
If a pilot like Chip wich is one of the most succesfull pattern pilots ever, who has won anything competition wise, is thinking at the posibility of a YS power airframe it has to be for a good reason.
