RV12 and RV12 iS tailcone difference
Our teen building group, Southern Arizona Teen Aviation, is building 2 RV12ís
We received our first tailcone just before the iS version was released. Our second one was ordered after. We opted to order the iS fuselage and engine for the first airplane.
The second tailcone has an inspection opening and cover on the bottom that allows access to the filters, pumps and fuel drain mounted on the aft side of baggage bulkhead. The first tailcone does not have the opening.
We fabricated an opening for the first tailcone prior to mating the fuselage and tailcone.
For those who had similar timing to ours you may want to consider adding the inspection opening. I am not sure how you would get to the fuel drain otherwise.
