Joey, sorry for the delayed reply. I haven't checked this site lately. I bought my plane in May and didn't take possession til early June. SE Houston near Houston. We're still a lonnnggg way from winter so I can't answer about the cold days yet but I sure am looking forward to them. I'm getting great performance on warm to hot days. A cold winter morning ought to feel like it's turbo-charged.

I am hoping for 500fpm climbs, is this on hot days or cold or did it make much difference for you?

I know with the Skycatcher with the 0-200 you can seriously tell the difference between cold and hot days.

I think you can beat 500 fpm climb with the 0=200 crank. I can get at least 500 with two adults and full fuel with my C-85/0-200 crank.

Setting up my FlyQ EFB on my Ipad and I am curious if anyone can help. 415-C C85 with 200 Crank, metal wings (not sure how much difference this makes in the numbers)

I don't have my aircraft yet to get specific numbers (hoping by end of the week to get it), but some of the numbers I need I am sure are similar across Ercoupes.

TAS (kts) Climb/Cruise/Descent 70/90/70
Fuel (gal/hr) Climb/Cruise/Descent 6/5/4
Climb (ft/min) 300
Descent (ft/min) 400

I know this can be subjective depending on temp and weight on board, I am just looking for typical day type numbers. The numbers I put in are my guesstimates based on what I have read or had the enjoyment of co-pilot seat.

Any input even if different based on personal experience would be wonderful.
