Sandbaggin’

As I mentioned previously, part of flight testing is flying at different weights and centers of gravity.  I used sand, which was cheap, easy to get, and pre-measured in 50 or 60 lb. bags.  It can be messy, though, so if I was going to do more extensive testing or test multiple airplanes, I think I’d find a better solution.  It worked well enough, though.

Here’s a picture of a few bags strapped into the rear seats.
