    Based I what I saw before putting floats on my SportCub, 325 or 350 ft for takeoff were regularly attainable. Climb performance improved by 20%. Depending on the prop and tires on the airplane, you could see as much as 108-110 mph indicated airspeed in cruise.

    I have a Sensenich grd adj prop with 52" pitch on my SportCub on floats.

    Using straight line delta difference between carbon cub specs and sport cub, a 20hp increase would equate to a 271ft takeoff roll and 1,050 climb rate ... Does this seem like to aggressive of performance increase assumptions?

    I had a S2 Dons Dream machine did my engine upgrade which included a new cam. I could easily take off 2 people less than 250' climb was about 1200fm with 29" tires. I was running a 50" cartridge IAS 100 and a 52" cartridge IAS 105 @ 2450 which seem to do the best over all. I only know of one other S2 who put the new cam in too so not sure of performance with out it. I was very pleased with the performance, temps all went down as did the fuel burn. One person it was quite impressive.

    Don Swords, owner of Don's Dream Machines in Griffin, GA has sold his hangar and engine facility and has officially "retired". That being said, he is still semi-operating out of his garage, and will probably be working on a small-block Continental motor when he leaves this earth. If anyone would like to get in touch with Don, I have his contact information.

    I know there is a caveat concerning the Sensenich grnd adj prop but there are other props. When you re-certify to E-LSA to make the engine upgrade, you could consider a Catto prop. CubCrafters offered the Catto prop as standard on the SportCub until the ATSM standards were changed last year.

    I know there is a lot of concern regarding the Sensenich prop on the 0-200 and 0-200 xp. I have asked a number of very knowledgeable people about this and the consensus I hear is that there is more of a business problem regarding TCM/Lycoming and Sensenich. All propellers have harmonics at various rpm's. I have not talked with anyone who has actually experienced this mag failure due to harmonics with this propeller. I have checked my mags at annuals and still see no indication of a problem.

    I continue to be impressed by the performance of the 0200 in my sport cub. It has the xp mod done by LyCon. Wednesday was really hot for Maine, we were 91 degrees and 75 dewpoint, really unusual for us to be so sultry. I gave a ride to a surveyor to inspect a couple big parcels we are looking at. We were right at gross. The plane was off in 350 ft, climb at 80 for cooling about 800 fpm. Don't know the DA but was high for us. Does a nice job for me at 6 gph and 100 mph. My oil burn is a bit disappointing at 1 qt 8 hrs but I know of 3 others that are the same. Thx for a nice package CC. I wonder how a Carbon Cub will fit in...hmmm
