Rates of climb, 9 vs 14 vs 7
So the 7 is the king of climb. I get that. The 9 at 160 horse and the 14 at 210 horse are within 100 feet per minute of each other per Vans published figures; stating that is with a fixed pitch on the 9, and assuming a constant speed on the 14. Why is the rate of climb that close with 50 horsepower less and a fixed pitch at that?
