    Hi Laurie
    Full fuel tanks in a Eurostar, c42, and other similar types would be less than 20 litres. Even my Nynja is a similar figure. That means these types (all 3 axis aircraft) would be unable...

    Yes, that was what was said with the 390kg limit. 450kg was supposed to be the solution to that... so now we have the same problem, but at a higher weight....?
