"We are pending DAR inspection for first flight. However, during a "high speed" taxi test, the a/c acheived liftoff at 40 mph indicated - reached a grand height of 2' before I realized it was off the ground. The mighty O-290-D was at 2,000 rpm for the run. We did put an Aerocarb on the zero-timed engine - believe that it is in the neighborhood of 140 HP at 2,700. Weight is 910 empty. Craig - NX96CW"
