About NANO / Pricing
What is the furthest you have flown your NANO or the longest you have flown in a day?
Stuart has the Hirth engine, not sure if fuel injection
Yes, mine is a Hirth F23 with carburetors.
In NZ there is no fuel restriction for Part 103 microlights, so Fusioncopter fitted a larger 30l tank for me.
I have a 30l tank on my Nano, cruising at 80km/hr burning 15l/hr.
That gives 2hrs/160km max duration/range, 1.5hrs/120km safe duration/range.
The longest single leg flight I have flown is just over 1hr/100km.
I have about 20kg spare with full tank and pilot, so have been thinking about some arrangement with saddle bags to hold an additional 10l each side, cross-coupled under the belly with a 12V transfer pump to top up the main tank in flight.
That would give me 50l/3hrs/240km.
I had a similar system on my trike that worked very well.
But this needs more thought- the Nano is a sweet looking machine, so any mods/additions will need to match it in quality, build and appearance.
Hirth or Polini engine?
More than a 5 gallon fuel tank takes you out of ultrlight.
Ultrafor USA, anyway.
I’d like to get an idea for how far you might make it cross country. More than 50 miles???
