Tank is behind the seats. The design ethos is to keep things as simple as possible. That is the simplest position which also means you don’t need a fuel gauge :)I like the look, especially the taildragger configuration. Where is the Fuel tank, in the wings?
Hi Danny What is the empty weight of the completed aircraft you have ordered? That's very interesting about the previous model stall at 38 knots and the new model is in the 45 kts range. It would appear that more development of the design is required. Look forward to your build forum. I have built a Skyranger Nynja that is a similar type of construction and as they are a development over 25 plus years and hit there advertised numbers on the bulls eye. Best Regards MikeJust talked to the distributor. He isn’t too concerned about Australia. It’s the USA that will have the biggest headache because the max stall requirement there is 42 knots so until there is a fix they have to impose a mtow of 510kg. But In Australia its 45 and the Bushcat just scrapes in so it can remain at 560.I will definitely try harder to keep the weight down in light of this. It’s disappointing though because the previous model was 38 knots.
Will find out tomorrow when the kits ship
