In looking at the performance figures, a distance range is listed for the RV-12 running 5000 Rpm, and also at 5500 rpms.
Is it possible or advisable to run the Rotax engine at 5500 rpm on a whole tank of fuel?
I was under the impression that the engine should not be run at full throttle for more than 5 minutes.
Depending on how you pitch your prop, for climb or cruise, is running the motor at 5500 rpms for more than 5 minutes advisable? Or is it pretty close to the "edge". What kind of manifold pressure should be expected, at 7500 ft under normal ATM conditions?
