    PSRU Gear Ratio vs. Prop Tip Speed

    Don't forget to add forward speed to the prop rotational speed in calculating prop tip speed. IIRC, the torque curves on the LS engines are pretty flat (relatively) so you may be spending lots of money for diminishing returns.

    A mustang II can get off in 500-600 feet on a hot day and landing takes maybe a hundred feet more. On grass (pretty smooth grass), maybe add another 100 feet. These numbers assume you have at least a Lycosaurus 0360, if you MUST have a certificated engine (although they aren't really that...
