So slightly slower than my 180 HP Hiperbipe when loaded with people, bags and gas.With a 180-200 hp Lyc, or a 210 hp Cont, they cruise @ ~135-140 kts...
I used to fly form with my buddies O-300/Aeromatic Swift against my RV-8 and it was absolutely no contest. To be fair, this engine and prop was NOT a good match for the Swift, despite some significant personal attention by Kent Tarver on his prop.
