Default Tiger vs RV-10

Dave,
I have owned a Tiger for the last 10 years and just bought a flying -10. The difference is significant. The -10 is far roomier and has about twice the climb performance. The glide is better in the Tiger even with the -10s prop pulled back to lowest rpm. The stall speed in the -10 is at least 10 knots faster. The -10 is much easier to keep within aft CG with 4 plus bags but tends to need ballast to stay within the forward Limit. No pitch up tendency when flaps are extended like the Tiger. The -10 flys very nicely up to the flight levels, mine runs 160kts at 17,500 at 15 mp and 2300 rpm burning 9gph. With a Garmin G3 panel it has as much displayed data as our Lear 60XR.

You will love your -10.

Mark
