i am trying to determine if I have a problem, I am only seeing 2500 rpm at max throttle in cruise at 5000 feet. Airspeed is 100-105 mph not knots. This is with the he sensinich wood prop supplied by AMD What I am trying to determine is this normal for a 601xl with the continental o-200 ? I would expect 2700 max at about 120 mph. Before I start looking for a fix, I would like to know what you are seeing with a continental powered 601xl with the sensinich prop? Thanks for your input. Dave
John /Below is my prop order (found the receipt) /above is a Zenith blog you might want to look at // I pitched mine heavy cruise at altitude -Ed Sterba told me he could repitch it lighter if needed (and I probably will have to) hope this helps
