    propeller?

    I have had my mouse for 2.5 yrs. Now that I am training for my
    commercial ticket I have had to rent other planes. As I rent a piper
    warrior w/160hp it seem my mouse with a 160 does not climb and perform
    the same way. The commpression was god at annual could it be the
    propeller need tuning?

    propeller?

    It could be that one plane has a climb prop and one has a cruise prop.
    That could account for the performance difference between planes.

    propeller?

    Josue',

    Be happy with your 160hp mouse.
    Do not compare it to anything else in the sky.
    Some planes are slower. Some faster.
    Few have a bigger cabin. Few are made stronger.
    Some go faster and cost a lot more.
    Some go slower and cost a lot more.
    It is like comparing your wife to a cover-girl... that cover girl will not treat you the same.
    You own a Beechcraft Musketeer. That is a great plane. Enjoy.

    propeller?

    Check your propeller log and see when it was overhauled last. The
    recommended interval is 500 hours. Mine had not been overhauled since it
    was new in 1972, and after the overhaul I gained 10 mph and better climb
    performance with less vibration. Ten miles per hour for $500 is a good
    deal. You can also have it re-pitched at the same time for better climb
    performance and high altitude performance, but it will cost you some
    mid-level speed.
