Synth syze..

What size Synth would this theoretical pilot require?

Pilot (95kg) + motor (28kg) + wing (7kg) = 130kg. (with fuel 137kg...)

Synth in-flight weight range: 29M @ 95 - 120kg, or 31M @ 110 - 135kg.

The reason i ask is because it seems a lot of PPG pilots use a wing over the max in-flight weight.

Hi As far as I am aware you do not include the weight of the wing or fuel in calculations.

So I would make it the following.

Pilot (95kg) + motor (28kg) + Reserve \ vario \ clothes \ boots etc (12kg) = 135kg

So I would go for the 31m

Why would you not include the wing it's still carrying its own weight!

But i don't include the fuel as it tends to disappear as you use it .

The synth is quite a thirsty wing so you don't realy want to be right at the end of the weight range or over it !

My Under standing was that it was rated to carry this weight, not including the weight of the wing. I am sure some one will correct me though :)

Dudek Calculation as follows (other manufactures differ)

Naked Weight+15kg(average wing weight and pilot clothing)+Dry weight of Motor (no fuel) + accessories ( reserves, 20kg of non essential electrical crap) ;-)

Simples

So for this pilot, leats say naked weight = 92, + 15 + 28 = 135kg - that`s right at the top of the max in-flight weight, which is good isn`t it?

Better to be near max weight or slightly over then too light or slightly under?

You need to re calculate !
