Re: An SQ2000 builder
Again, for what it's worth, I have two comments....
Mike Watson (Velocity flyer based at KLNA) has been extremely happy with his Franklin 6 / IVO combination for hundreds of hours. I have witnessed many take-offs of that beast from a 3000' runway and he's at 500' over the threshold. He based his choice on a good recommendation from another Velocity flyer with hundreds of hours on the same combination.
As we experienced recently with the 40 kts crosswind story, verbal conversations are often mis-heard, misinterpreted, mis-reported or just plain WRONG.
