    Not moot - if they find out they left off the L-3 there will be a revision. It is the same as a
    7AC with more windows.Bob, you are thinking L-16. The L-3, depending on version is a 65-TC, an

    Way to many variables to compare RPM in climb or take off! What is your static RPM, and at what

    I suspect youíve tried Taylorcraft 2000 LLC in Brownsville TX? Another source would be Terry

    prop, by A...
