Sling 4 LR tank details ?

Post by geoff_g »

I have a pre-owned Sling 4 with long range tanks, looking for information on them as they are not mentioned in the POH at all - The TSi POH has a supplement for the LR tanks, so at lease I can figure out how they work, the panel valve switching looks the same....

My queries are:
- The TSi Tanks are 40L per side - are the Sling 4 tanks the same? (yeah I could fill them, but using them needs the answers below :D )
- What is the moment arm for the Sling 4 LR tanks? (The TSi supplement shows an additional entry in the W&B calcs - assuming the Sling 4 has same)
- Any idea on the flow rate of the transfer pump, if the only way to determine how much fuel is transferred is to time how long the pump is on for?

Perhaps one for #slingsupport ?

Cheers,
Geoff
