FlyingMonkey Posted July 30, 2013 Report Share Posted July 30, 2013 I generally prefer a slow taxi, really not much more than walking speed. But my CTSW doesn't agree. Even at idle, if I take off the brakes and let it roll on a long flat stretch, it will wind up to 22 knots or so, which is way faster than I like. This is with full stick back to get a little stabilator aerobraking. I don't like using the brakes as much as required to keep the speed down, it seems like a path to fast wear. My plane idles right around 1950-2050rpm, is that set too high? Or is this just how CTs run on the ground? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
