For myself, I think I would prefer to make some kind of saddle tanks that could be put either on either side of me or behind the seat and below the tank with a simple pump system to feed the fuel into the main tank.

I think less CG problems to deal with that way. Also, gas fumes in the wing would also have a nasty effect on the foam. It would have to be concentrated, but I won't take that chance. :o

oh i would never put gas tanks in the wings either, i was just clarifying the point about overloading the wing attach fittings. those 6 bolts are on my mind a lot since I fly over the published weight limit of a series III. but once I bought, rebuilt and flew a 2-seater, seeing as both birds have the same setup i feel better about flying a series III as a heavier dude.

you can modify any structure, just be sure you know what you're doing first.

I finally had the time to put the rest of the bits on the motors, and here is more or less the final config. The little link on the throttle arm will be removed in favour of a "Z" bend, and I might remove a little bit more material from the front of the bracket to gain a little more clearance from prop and spinner.

Art,

I've been working with the guys that made my throttle's to design essentially a Lazair Throttle Kit...which they have done. It comes with most of what you'll need to do it. They have a minimum qty though. I'd have to purchase 50 units (25 planes worth). If enough interest was generated with guys wanting to have this nice set-up, I'd consider a run. They are about $75 a set plus shipping.

Now's your chance guys! This stuff is really top notch, and you're not going to find an easier way to replace all your worn out throttle equipment. One stop shopping for a Lazair! When did that happen last?
