    I finally got data on my Bushmaster stall speed data. My grandson helped out. Using two tablet GPS's and airspeed speed indicator. At 1500 feet msl and 70 degree and relative calm day. We did stalls in four directions 90 degrees different and took readings. The stalls were with full flaps and about 2000 cruise rpm. I cannot get a break without using power. My average gps stall speed was 35 mph. About 8 mph lower than my original Pacer. My airspeed read 25 mph at stall which is not very helpful. My airspeed reading is 5 mph low at cruise and about 10 mph lower when I below 60 mph.

    Need to change my tire size.

    600x6 or 35x10?

    35's would be nice. But, I'll never get anywhere. My cruise is just over 100 now.

    That beats the 90 or less I get in my Super Cub. 115 in the Clipper

    On floats, full fuel. Stall at 40 mph on the GPS.
    Lowest stall was at cruise power setting, 36 mph.

    Cruise is 100 mph @ 20" mp and 2200 RPM 1500 ft (180 hp engine)
