Today i installed the fittings into the fuel tank and made a fuel tank support frame . The frame is held in place with 4 screws into the fuse and the tank is secured with Velcro to the frame.

Helmut,

I have one or two of those tanks just laying around. Wished I'd known you were looking for one. Have 4 or five pilots in stock as well.

Next time check with JMHS & WS first. LOL!

Inspiring me to start my Hosteler RV-4 I bought in Toledo 2 or 3 years ago when the CDN was GOOD! LOL!

Helmut,

I see a PB GPS in there. Have you installed an iGYRO as well and using the GPS to automatically adjust gain depending on aircraft speed?

Looking good.

Re: RV-4 42%build thread

Hi Jim i have taken the PB out of my other plane and even in that one i did not use the IGyro
but i will use it in this plane .The IGyro helps for landing specially when i use flaps i do not need to mix down elevator with Flaps. Yes i have the GPS sensor it will be installed in the center of the fuse
