what made the (stall) speed on the h-800 so high compared to earlier model couriers?

Weight!! not including the fact that the "stab" has 10 degrees less travel, direct drive engine Lycoming IO-720 ( 400 HP) .. Also consider most H-800/700 series Helio airplanes are at least 2700 pounds empty at any given time. The FAA required these models to include stall warning devices!!
