  • C-170 Performance

    What sort of real performance can a guy expect to get out of a C-170B w/ 145hp O-30 see myself and no other mods. I'm thinking full fuel and two people weighing about 425 lbs. Is a 1000' strip out of the question? I can't see myself going anywhere any shorter than that.

    It depends what's at the end of the strip, doesn't it?

      Way too many variables! Go to the 170 Associations web sight there are lots of threads to read on performance there.

        All the 170s with 0-300s I have flown (just 5 or 6) have not been impressive performers, but I never tried anything that short. But just my impression from Lake Hood strip is---- not much margin for error at 1000'.

        Putting an 0-360 in it changes the game quite a bit.

            This is with a new plane and lots of luck. depending on the density alitude and temp. If you have big oversized tires, how many times the plane has been bent.... and so on...
