Online Community of Zenith Builders and Flyers
Today I was out doing my 40hr phase flying and decided to do some idle power glide tests. Zenith recommends 60kts best glide speed. I tried 50kts, 55kts, 60kts and 65kts. The best ratio was at 60kts with a 9.3:1 ratio. This is line with most production planes such as Cessna 182 and Piper Cherokee.
My apologies Michael, I am flying CH750 Cruzer with a ULPower 350is engine. No wheel fairings yet,
No problem. Just looking out for the future. So anyone who later does a search has all the facts.
