The mixture adjustment up there with the O320 is a micro turn between happy and very un-happy engine
. And, man, passing through 15k' in the climb, more HP please! I'm a "pilot", I can manage the power just as well as any other professional that can over speed their airframe too.
There, I said it, I feel better
Let's see, N4822C, V.2 - new panel, tail dragger conversion, IO-360. Mission: Long haul, high altitude, 2-up... I think I even have a plan sold to the CFO. Other ships available for all the other down low stuff.
