Default Pee Bottles

An awkward subject. Conventional pee bottles seem not to work well in center stick airplanes. Take a look at the devices sold at www.advantageurinal.com. Ive used one in my Lancair Legacy; no contortions, tidy, easily cleaned. The vendor will adjust the tube length to your needs; 8 worked well for me.

Default I have to ask 😔

OK, I do need a better idea. My flight plan includes a stop after one hour even if breakfast is only 1 cup of coffee and NO WATER. My delimma is, how do you pee up hilll in an RV3 ?.

I know, TMI, but I had to ask !

Just a matter of flight planning. Climb to 10K', power off, point the nose down, and let 'er rip.

Make sure you have a checklist for that before you post video.

When using some sort of pee boottle in my glider, I had to thermal up, then go to 90+ knots to pee. Changed to external catheters and a collection bag. Works great, once you get the size right for you. Run the tube down your leg to a leg bag.

You can pee in any attitude.

This is the right answer here. It takes a while to get use to them, I used them dry suit scuba diving.

I use Travel Johns bought from ACS. Flying in loose shorts enable's me to stuff one of these up my short leg and then it usually takes me a considerable amount of time to relax enough to go, especially in rough air. The pouch has stuff in it that turns liquid to gel immediately so you can just toss it in the back when your finished. Wife can use them too. We like to take them to Oshkosh camping. They come in handy when you go see the Beer Fairy and the Porty-a-Toilet is a long walk from your tent. One unit can be used several time in most cases.

My local uniform supply store, where nurses buy scrubs, etc, stocks all 3 components: the bag, the hose, and the catheter. Note you'll have a choice of sizes - small, medium or large (children, men, or whoa). I'm told better stocked stores have a measuring template device available for discreet use. The jokes just write themselves.
Like anything regarding aviation, get familiar with the equipment on the ground first.

.....I guess this is somewhat contingent on how you are built.--

Default This Works

When I have a longer flight in my RV4 I use the product in the link below.

Works great and just as advertised once you get the tightness of the bands correct. Highly advise trying it on the ground first.
I did that and was glad I did since I did NOT get the tension on the bands right the first time.
