One plane, three engines, hard numbers
Source: FLIEGER magazine, June 2005:
Manufacturer: Lambert Aircraft Engineering / Belgium
Aircraft: Mission M212, four-place, Diamond Catana look-alike.
Engines: Thielert Centurion 135HP, Lycoming O-320 150HP, O-360 180HP
Cruise speed at 8000 feet and 75% power: between 126 and 137 knots
Take off roll: between 270 and 225 meters (720 - 885 ft.)
That's all folks. That's the difference between a 135HP turbodiesel and a 180HP avgas engine.
I think I'm going to be very happy with my Mercedes Benz A Class / Thielert Centurion 1.7 liter / ~120HP engine.
It's all Greek to me
