I just finished a Jabiru j250 with the 5100 8cyl engine, hence “j258.” So far I’m very happy with the airplane. It seems to climb best at 90 knots getting just over 1500ft/min. Once up, it will fly 130 knots TAS at 2600RPM with a fuel burn of 28 l/hr. I still have to finish the wheel pants and fit them. To keep the weight down i used a SkyView 10″ glass panel of only 3 lb plus the radio.
