description = "--- RV-7 Description ---\n\nThe RV-7/7A retains all the traditional RV virtues. It is an all-around sport airplane, with excellent cross-country capability, fine aerobatic qualities and superior handling. A typical RV-7 can hold two FAA standard pilots, 100 lbs. of baggage and full tanks: 42 gallons. At the aerobatic gross weight of 1600 lbs., the RV-7 complies with the +6/-3G standards of the FAA's Aerobatic Category and can still carry two people. Repaint based on a real Swiss aircraft, by Ricartdo. September 2011."
