The bottom line is that it is all about speed speed speed Cessna R172K Hawk XP owners should be flying with the Isham conversion 210 HP STC. This high-performance version of the XP has a proven reliability. Shorter takeoff (490"/990" over 50"). The Cessna R172K Hawk XP has adequate power at 195 horses. That is why the increase to 210 horsepower causes such a dramatic difference in takeoff performance. All of the added power is destined to quicken acceleration. This shortens the distance from the start of the takeoff roll to the point takeoff speed is reached. The 210 horsepower makes the airplane sound and accelerates like a Cessna 210! Even under severe takeoff conditions, the airplane jumps off the ground with an immediate and positive rate-of-climb. Increased rate-of-climb (1150 fpm @ 81 KIAS). As with takeoff acceleration, the additional power provided by the 210 horsepower all goes to increase the rate-of-climb after liftoff. The initial climb after rotation is much more positive. The rate-of-climb increase significantly reduces the time it takes to reach cruise or ATC assigned altitude. This reduces pilot workload (less climbing maneuvers) to reach the required altitudes when crossing controlled airspace. Less fuel burn and shorter time to altitude. Because the shorter takeoff and increased rate-of-climb require less time, this results in less fuel burn from the start of the takeoff roll until reaching climb altitude. Improved decent capability. At low pitch (high RPM) the propeller works like an air brake. The power off decent rate is dramatically quicker at 2800 RPM than at 2600 RPM. This feature can be controlled simply by setting the prop control in high RPM if a rapid or emergency decent is needed, or by setting it at 2600 RPM for a normal decent approach. Improved ground handling. The standard R172K Hawk XP requires constant braking to hold the taxi speed down at engine idle. The 210-horsepower conversion changes the propeller low pitch stop setting causing the blade to "flatten". At engine idle this results in less forward pull by the prop. The airplane taxi’s at a safe and comfortable speed without the need to constantly ride the brakes. Also, this reduces heating and wear on the brake pads and discs, lowering maintenance costs
