Wayne, I've followed the QQ thread as well, I'm still wondering about the prop efficiency issue. I have no concrete evidence telling me that spacing the prop out further will have any appreciable effect. Have you compared your plane, which I assume the prop is spaced 15/16 from the cowl (correct??), to a plane with the book set up of 7/16? If so, what is your evaluation?
No I havent done that. I am just going by what I have heard QQ say. I have a firm belief that he is a lot smarter than me when it comes to that stuff.


Wayne, you have Owned and flown two Yaks now ( I think) I thought the first one had 2 1/2 inch standoffs or am I mistaken?
