Very cool. I kept waiting to see where they would stop for "lunch". JK. What kind of numbers are you seeing with twin 300's on your SS.

not knowing chit about tunning props would this provide enough footage for a better prop selection?

Depending on fuel and load, mid-60's

Very cool for sure !! Incredibly simple trim system , single ram .
Question for Scott , we all know ( well most of do ) to cut throttles when leaping in air and with conv power plant this is no issue but with Turbine they are slow to respond . do you pull back sticks or just keep going and let props free-wheel when airborne ?
