Has Rv12 maneuvering speed (90kts) changed? Not sure if I read it somewhere but I can’t put my finger on it.

Thank you,
Doug in IL

From my POH it states “Rough air” reduce to 90 KTS. Vans is calling it Vo (operating maneuvering) and has it listed as 90kts for 1320lbs and 72 KTS for 850 lbs. Hope this helps

850 pounds is what, a full tank of fuel and no pilot, maybe, without paint?

Not even that. Mine's listed empty weight is 749, so even full fuel puts it over 850.
