anybody familiar with the use of composite tanks on aerobatic planes? I have built some of these for ultralight, but I want to know about the stress end fatigue resistance of these on " shaken aircrafts".
I usually use carbon or glass fiber with epoxy, on a foam form, like described on Bingelis books. is it acceptable for a high + an - G's use?


thanks for tips. Hervé
