I put the Catto 76x42 prop on and cut 35 feet off take off and gained 200ft/minute in climb. (26in ABW) The 76x42 is a great match and very smooth prop. Turn 2400rpm on climb out @ 68mph & 2675 straight & level flight. Also running a C-85 cam that gives more torque from 2250 to 2450rpm

Chuck based on our conversation (29 verses 31) I was concerned about the brakes holding during run-up but it's not an issue, I'll just stay on top of brake pad condition. I chose the 31's based on many comments in the Super Cub Forum which seemed to be greatly in favor of 31's. Remember, they are all just opinions and we all know about opinions and something else, they all stink. Beyond that I can only compare to the 8:50's which it had on when I bought it, other than it wanting to fly sooner due to the increased wing angle there was little difference on take-off. How bad is that? Yes I hear it coming, weight penalty and cost, well I gave up Ben & Jerry's last year, the $ savings are paying for them and I lost 15 pounds!
    Under most conditions I use Randy's 2-notch flap method, it too works. At some point I'll play with the numbers and report them but for now that seems a little to much like work. I just want to take-off and land, and it does that amazingly well!

    Jon,I did go with the ABW’s even though they are heavier. 99% of the time I’m alone so a little extra weight is of no perceivable consequence. I am truly amazed at how quickly it wants to fly, even as our temps rise.
    I am careful to keep it low allowing some speed to build, ( this is one of those Carbon Cub need not worry areas ) at times the ASI is barley at 20 mph. I have been playing with Randy’s 2 notch flap method which I was at first hesitant to try thinking it might be more suitable to you 180 horse guys but with the extra 20hp, change in AOA as a result of the tires and this prop it really works. Add a little wind and it happens so fast I’m inclined to hold it down a little longer thinking I’m just not ready. Having flown a Carbon Cub a few hours before purchasing your S2 and making these changes I am realistic in what it is not but I sure love what it is!

    Joe,
    Glenn usually sends me a text of up coming weekend events but now that he's on floats I probably won't hear much from him until ski season.
