I have a Horton STOL and have struggled to get the right speeds over the fence for landing. 75 lbs. in the baggage area has really smoothed things out and my short final speed is 58 KIAS for an efficient landing without float. I've searched out an instructor with 206 experience (real experience and not the "yup, I've flown one before" kind) to help me explore the envelope of performance. Until then, I keep pretty conservative..
Bonanza man... thanks for the Bonanza insight. I've read some of your posts in the past and there are days that the Bo does enter my mind but I keep coming back to the things I really like about the Cessnas. We have 2 youngsters and the thought of schlepping car seats up onto the wing and down into the back seat every time we go somewhere is a big reason why low wings lack some appeal for me. Unfortunately, no matter what I buy the car seat task will get somewhat more difficult that it is today. There's really nothing like the cabin access you get with the doors on a Cardinal. The Bo speeds sure we be nice on the weekend visits to Grandma's in golf shores or those annual trips out west though.
Thanks again guys!

This is a horrible development Dave. I hate to see a dream airplane like this go. And Bo's are an incredible buy these days. That's cheap with all that stuff.
