Granted, the water pumps would be a lot more power than chainsaws. I would covert if it wasn't for something I don't have a lot of, spare money! I'm sure it would be a shocking change, especially considering that even with the chainsaws, on a calm day and level grass field in the middle of summer, I rotate in a 145 feet.

Sorry, I miswrote. I meant lift-off, not rotate.

Yeah I suppose you can get in too deep with any hobby. Just for kicks I'd see if Phil Lipscombe had a junk Series 2 from which you could borrow a few fuselage parts. That done and with a few wing upgrades you could later install 185's. You could turn that 150' TO into less than 100' and climb at 450 fpm.

The plane in this picture is/was owned by Larry Amirault from Vermont.

I have rounded up all the parts and peices I need and the wing strengthening I could handle. The 450 climb rate is what would be important to me. I fly low and drop into clearings from time to time and friend's back yards, that's where you can get yourself in a disastrous predicament.
