AirBike at new weight

Post by John Riley » Mon Jul 14, 2014 10:21 am

I have installed a Rotax 447, and a wing fold mechanism, and the aeroplane is flying again.
Although I can now go to 300 kgs under the new rules the aeroplane has a design limit of MAUW of 254kgs.
I am currently at 234 kgs so I could fit another tank with 20 litres.
I think I will enjoy flying for a bit before doing any more mods.
I've kept my LAA inspector busy these past months, I can now start using him officially on my PLUMB BGP-1.
