Inverted Fuel Pick-Up

'Flop-Tube'; Install in One Tank for Inverted Flight


If you intend to perform "sustained" inverted flight in your RV then you will need to purchase and install a "flop tube" in at least one of the fuel tanks. Your engine will also require an inverted oil system as well as fuel injection. Choose IF-3F for the RV-3 fuselage tank, the IF-3W for RV-3 wing tank. RV-4, RV-6/6A, RV-7/7A, RV-8/8A use IF-4/6. Includes the brass weight for the end of the hose. Does not apply to the RV-9/9A or RV-10.
