Hi folks,

Considering installing HW extended range tanks on the 8.

Good idea? Bad idea in terms of the additional weight arm/structural/aerobatic considerations?

I have met an 8 owner that really wished that he had installed them while the wings were open.

Thanks for your attention,
Dave

Thanks, read the article. I have taken delivery of the tanks and welding is good.
