Default EA picaro what turbines are you using

I was thinking about the swiwin 240 but was thinking the residual thrust will be to much for it. What are you guys using

My friend uses an SW240 and I am using an SW220. It flies great on either.

Residual thrust was a slight issue but we turned down our idle RPM by about 3000 RPM and lowered the minimum RPM by the same amount. Works perfectly!

My thought would be that the residual thrust would be more of an issue on paved runways. The clubs we fly at are grass.

Absolutely superb airplane!

Iím flying my Picaro with a P-180. About 10 flights and all good. Agreed it could use a little more power. Iím thinking of a Rhino. 45 lbs.
