Fosa Ballast kit by (Steve Condon)

Custom designed by Steve for his own Fosa and boy does it help in high wind on the Fosa. The kit uses lead instead of brass in the wings and one brass tapered square rod for each side of the in the appropriate joiner slot. I do not know if it will work in the Fosa Lift! Steve is not making any more of these right now so here is your chance.

Thanks for looking!

General info...the Fosa Lift uses wing and fuse slugs that are the same dimensions in cross-section, but different lengths. The wing tubes are longer and use three bars per side that are individually shorter, but collectively longer than the Fosa standard's two bars. The Lift's fuse slugs are slightly longer, but the fuse tube appears to be unchanged.

The wing joiners also appear unchanged.
