Payload?

Postby Owe » Mon Jul 03, 2006 8:18 pm

Hi!

What kind of useful payload has the finished whispers?
In the specs it is stated that the emptyweigth is 500 Kg.
All up weight is 770, = usefull payload of 270 kg?

500 kg, is that without instruments?

I fly motorglider here in Sweden and we are currently looking to upgrade
to better aircrafts.
The used Dimona H36 and Grob 109B we have been looking at
has all an usefull payload of under 200Kg!
A difference between 145 to 197 Kg depending of aircraft.

270 Kg payload in whisper???

Is it possible to install a Sauer engine in whisper?
We have very good experience of sauer, high torque and power.

With basic instruments the empty mass is 500kg.
Payload is 270kg.
Sauer has not been installed yet but should not be a problem.
