I donít know, and canít speak for, Heinz, but in Phase 1 testing we also got 193 knots (which is 222 mph) in level flight, at zero MSL, wide open and best power. Prop is a Whirlwind 151 three-blade constant speed. IO-320 by Mattituck.
Of course, that is 8 knots over airframe redline, so we havenít repeated that run!
