Not much different than flying from the back seat of a Cub. Actually, being an open cockpit, I think the Piet may have a little better view into the turn compared to the Cub because you can tilt your head back and have a visual line of sight above the wing and into the turn.BTW, when he's in a turn, can a Piet pilot see ahead in the direction of the turn? Seems like the wing would block out a lot of space you'd rather see.
When my daughter was just out of college I overhauled her Slant 6 and the little 914 auto trans. A very overbuilt engine and a simple good transmission. I don't know how much the slant 6 weighs but they are heavy. Didn't know there was a aluminum block version. One of the most reliable 6's made.Has anyone ever used a Slant 6? I think it was supposed to weigh about the same as a Model A engine. Not sure about the dimensions. Also not sure if you can tilt it back upright so it doesn't look ridiculous. The torque curve I saw for it is quite flat. You can get almost full torque down to, as I recall, 1,300 rpm. For a short while, I had a3600 lb car in which the slant 6 engine was the only good part. I once put it in 3rd gear by mistake, and started up a slight upgrade without much trouble. Anyway, a spec I saw was 155 ft lbs at 2,400 rpm. That's a bit over 70 hp, though at higher speeds, different versions of the slant 6 were good for 100 to 145 hp. There was even a version with an aluminum block, though there are supposed to be very few left. The cast iron version is, of course, the engine that never dies.
