Scott, I feel your pain. ( or maybe not... �� )
I just want to let you know that you are not alone. Right now, I know how hard it was to make that confession. I would love to say that time will heal those wounds, but I can't.

Come to the dark side with me, Bill R, and the other -9 outlaws. You can do it!

I love our 9a, and it is amazing how much that wing loves 13.5k', but the lack of power up there is very frustrating when you want to get to 16k' for a "few minutes".

There, I said it. I feel better .

Come on over to the dark side - we have cookies!

Solo with full (standard) fuel, I'm still climbing between 400 and 500 per minute when I level off at 17,500'.

Built an off-plan 9A with too much fuel and too much HP. Should drop dead any minute now.
