    I have full sized aluminium wing tank and all the cad drawings to go with it as we had to get it approved in the UK and it's been in my avid for many years now without any leaks

    far to many or just don't tell them lol ( I don't recommend the last suggestion). You will have to fly at least 25 hours in it to get the approval once installed. 
     
    You should speak to Fredstock on here as he has the  Simonini Victor 2 
    Weight, size, engine mount as 532/582, 92 HP and seems to be working very well.

    We have all been told to take the engine numbers down but it is a massive problem in the UK and they are just cutting all the wires, pipes and taking the engines, props still attached to the mount at night and there have been a huge amount gone missing

    yeah just the bare kit with out avonics is around £50,000 so that's nearly  $70,000 but our avids and kitfox have a higher stress rating with +6 -3 and the bristell is +4 -2 so we have one up on them lol.
