I promised an update and never delivered.

BRS did get back to me very quick on my request.

BRS is using 83.53 lbs and 169.38" to calculate W&B for retrofit aircraft. Obviously, on new builds, you would just weigh the aircraft. BRS said via email that the structure has additional support and/or bypasses baggage area structure, so you are only limited by CG on how much weight in the baggage area.

I'll let y'all make up your own mind on whether this works for you or not.

Does anyone know why the system is so expensive? Seems to be about 10k more than the 172/182 kits. I donít know if I can justify it for that price.

Default Umm...

Could it be that there have only been about 800 RV-10 kits sold versus the THOUSANDS of Cessnas?

Default 2,000 RV kits sold

Hello, There have been 2,000 RV-10 kits sold and I have read that Vans says the RV-10 continues to be one of the best sellers in recent years.
