Due to questions posed on my aircraft I will provide basic info for all to note.  The engine is an 0-235, which gives a TAS of approx 100 mph, at 6 gph.  I generally fly at 2300 rpm.  The prop is a Warp Drive currently set at about 13 degrees, but in checking the log books it has been set at 9 degrees.  I haven't tried to experiment with the setting since purchase; maybe someday.  The outstanding feature of this airplane is its visibility.  It is outstanding.  The comfort of the cockpit is actually better than it looks.  My longest flight was 2.5 hrs and no problem.  I am very satisfied with my airplane, and I like the fact that I have a Lycoming engine rather than any of the others normally found in homebuilts.

You said you are using a Warp drive prop but you haven't mentioned the number of blades or the length of the blades or if they are tappered or standard. I have a V.W. engine in my 601xl-b with a Warp drive 3 blade standard width blade at 68'' length set at 16.5 degrees pitch. I was looking for comparisons on the settings others are using to the performance they are getting. I am getting 133 mph at 2250 prop rpm.
