Hi,

I am obviously missing something, but how I can tell in flight how much fuel left in my comet?

Thanks for help!

hmm been awhile sense I have flowen it, I will have to look and see. But I think it was on the center right on the gauges? I will look later and if you do not have an answer I will post it.

There is no fuel gauge, just a warning light for low fuel (bellow variometer).

I think "Komet" is German for " Divine Wind" in english that translates "one way Trip"

I don't think the original test pilot, Glider champion Heini Dittmar thought it funny when he was severly injuried trying to land the thing with no landing gear only a 'skid 'that failed as the remaing highly volitale fuel exploded- this same scenario repeated many times.
