WELCOME RANS BUILDERS AND FLYERS!
Welcome to the #1
online community of RANS builders and flyers. The
RANS CLAN was started in 2007 as a way for
like-minded RANS enthusiasts to get together, tell
stories, share knowledge, ask questions, and offer
support and assistance to fellow builders and
flyers. Please join us!
S-21 Special Offer!
We have decided to upgrade the standard fuel
capacity of the S-21 Outbound from the original
offering of 32 gallons to 45 Gallons (including
header tank). For those who have already purchased a
production position, the 45 Gallon system will be
included. For a limited time only, new orders will
also get the upgrade. However, there will be a price
increase for the wing kit, which includes the fuel
system. Currently the wing kit sells for $7500.
After June 30th the price increases to $8300. Up
until June 30th we will accept $2500 "early bird"
deposits for the S-21 Outbound at the current listed
price. After July 1st orders for individual kits
will be accepted. With the exception of the some of
the lower priced sub-kits, a 50% deposit will be
required with orders for S-21 Outbound kits.
RANS S-21: High Points of Dual
In a two spar wing the load is shared between the
spars. In the outbound 75% of the load is on the
front spar and 25% on the rear. In the case of a
single strut single spar wing the rear spar has to
be there anyway, so why not share the load. This
reduces the weight and size of the main spar. It
also positions the front spar to the leading edge of
the wing that allows more advantages…read on.
The front and rear spar locations are
conveniently located where you would want the door
posts. This allows for big doors for easy cabin
entry and cargo loading.
Fuel On Center of Gravity
The wide spar spacing allows the wing tank to be
located near the center of gravity. This minimizes
CG movement between full and empty tanks. The CG of
the wing tank is kept as close to the wing root as
possible, keeping weight near the aircraft
Pre-formed leading edge
By including the leading edge in the front spar
extrusion, the need to bend and fight a sheet metal
leading edge is eliminated. The extra thickness of
the leading edge provides a robust structure to
resist bird strikes and hangar rash.
Ease of Assembly
Perhaps the hallmark of this design is the ease
of assembly. In a matter of hours you will have a
completed wing. This is due to a high level of
pre-fabricated parts ready to assemble, and having
an overall design concept that eliminates many of
the critical and time consuming elements of sheet
metal wing construction.
