Having a little time in each of these Jeff Boatright I'd say your observations matched mine about these airplaneswith one possible exception---the Champ I flew had a metal prop on an A-65 and it would lift more and climb betterthan a friend of mine who had the same basic plane but was using a wood prop of similar pitch and diameter.In all respects I believe the Piet is a nicer handling plane than a Cub or Champ but love the speed of the Champ (87mph seems fast now!)and the comfort, plus you can fly with the door removed so it feels semi-open cockpit.All three planes are very forgiving and docile airplanes though for sure.Mike C.Ohio________________________________________________________________________________Date: Fri, 30 Jan 2015 23:21:29 -0600Subject: Pietenpol-List: Fwd: B: OT: Lindbergh's Flight--A MUST for airplane lovers!
