+6/-3 however current prop is very coarse so would struggle with loops etc. Does very nice rolls.

This is a Thorp with an O-360 and CS prop, but does a nice display:



Elliot Sequin has also done a few flight test videos of the Thorp... Here's one:



Good luck with the sale! I'm in the process of getting mine airworthy... Was hoping to get in contact and do some flying together. Hopefully the new owner stays active.

Cheers,

Aaah good old EJD.

I imported her from Ithaca, NY. She is a true and straight bird, fast and wholly satisfying to own and fly.

Good luck with the sale.
