Takeoff After 3 Seconds; Climb At 2,100 Feet Per Minute

The Carbon Cub SS can land and takeoff in patches that you thought were accessible only to helicopters and hikers. Mounting a lightweight 180 horsepower engine to this airframe results in a horsepower-to-weight ratio of 0.1364 or just 7.33 lbs/hp (compared, for example, to a Cessna 172R's 15.33 lbs/hp). That means you'll hit a sea level climb rate of 2,100 feet per minute.
