Thanks

Thank you for the comments on my website. I have updated it since then and will do a better job of keeping it up to date from now on.

Airspeed as fuel flow

As everything with Stick and Rudder, very interesting. I compared it to the USAF Dash 1 for the O-2A. Best glide is 100 kts at 4400 pounds. The performance charts say best long range airspeed is 104...

Power settings

Thanks for another reason to get a G4T. Great picture. I had my tach and prop checked during my most recent annual. Actually it was part of calibrating the fuel system after that was overhauled. One...

Regrets for not making it. First time it was close enough to come to, but the weekend after OSH was just not in the schedule. (That said, if my wife and kids had come back one day later in their...

Herb,

Good to finally meet you. In the several places my plane was on display, several people came up to me and said they were looking around trying to see Skymasters but couldn't find any. I know...

Skymaster Maintenance

You want to talk about costs and maintenance nightmares? Try keeping a Baron!

(The only advantage there is that Baron parts are easier to find.)

Do Skymasters cost money to maintain? Yes -- much...

I spoke with the Delta Hawk people at OSH. They are focusing on their smaller 160 hp engine which they say delivers the equivalent of 180 hp performance. No idea how they measured that. They seem to...

The question was why there is information showing a different MGW for the O-2A than for the civilian C-337B. I am not advocating flying it beyond the FAA type certificate.

O2 Weights

As stated below, Skymaster models from straight 337 to 337D increased every year with no (or very slight) changes to the airplane. As it was explained to me at RTC, every year, Cessna was able to...

OSHadventure

Gear problem

Start thinking about the engine driven pump.

Had very similar problems. All symptoms same as yours. Only think different was that I am not so brave to keep bringing the gear up and down like that....

O2A Weight

As others have said, your weight limit is 4300 pounds. Before you think that it should really be 4400, 4600, or 4850 (and therefore inclined to overload it) I offer some considerations: 1: USAF...
