Thank you for your interest in our products.
We have developed wing tip tanks to suit the RV 6, 7, 8. When assembled, these wing tips are identical in physical size with a small weight increase to the standard tips with the added bonus of being fuel tanks holding an extra 9.5 gallons or 36 liters per side to increase your range. This is the max capacity possible to keep your aircraft within the correct C of G limits.
The RV tip kit consists of: a pair of carbon fiber wing tip skins fused together with internal ribs bonded in place; 2 Standard RV fuel caps; 2 AN fuel pickups; 2 fuel finger strainers; vent line stock; tube of fuel seal; resin and glass for final rib bond in.
The only assembly required is the main rib has to be bonded in once the inside of the tip is fuel sealed. The kit comes with step by step instructions and is very simple to assemble and install.
Once completed, your new tips simply attach to your wings exactly the same way your standard tips did. The new tip is placed on top of your wing, whilst you connect the fuel lines and then flip them over to screw the tips on.
We also offer a wing tip installation kit. This kit consists of all the hardware, lines and 2 pumps to connect your new tip tanks to the main tanks. See our website for pricing.
To secure a pair of RV wing tip tanks a 20% deposit is required. Currently there is a 6 week lead time due to high demand.
If you wish to proceed, email us your full name and delivery address and we will issue you with an invoice and payment details.
Over the next few weeks we will be posting a YouTube video on how to fit these tips.
We currently have a pdf installation diagram now posted on our web page for your viewing, http://www.advancedaero.com/vans.html
, and a basic picture of the tip there as well.
We will be posting more pictures over the next few weeks.
If we can help in any way, don't hesitate to contact us.
