The brake pedals. I used the cast pedals from ACS. They are VERY similar to the Yankee pedals. And they are very close to the Bede's design (imagine that!). They work very well.     Edit the text to this image Delete this image

Jim's BD-4 has two fuel tanks in each wing. They are separated by a stringer just behind the spar. The fuel cells go from the wing root to 3/4 of the span or so. You can see two fuel tank lids, one for the leading edge tank, one for the tank behind the spar. The total fuel capacity is around 100 gal.     Edit the text to this image Delete this image
