I am in the process of building my 601HDS with a 3.0L engine. What kind of performance can I expect and handling characteristics.
I hesitate to quote any kind of actual performance data as there are so many variables that come into play. Zenith has provided performance data for the HDS and they are generally considered optimistic to say the least but the 3 liter engine you will come a lot closer to their numbers. I have to admit I am on the plus side so if you are a 150 lbs pilot your numbers will be better.
Handling is a lot like a Cherokee but with quicker control response, I generally fly approaches about the same as I would with the Cherokee. Keep in mind I have vortex generators which make a significant difference on stall characteristics and gets the stall speed down to LSA numbers.
