    Firmin cargo pod max lb. capacity

    Hi Guys,
    somebody knows how many pounds can be loaded in the Firmin (Bob Piatt) cargo pod? The “jumbo” version which is -I think- 2” deeper than the regular one.

    I can easily get 300 pounds into the 150 pound legal load pod if I remember the story correctly it was tested with 600 lbs or so For the STC. DENNY

    Hi Denny,

    Firmin Bush pod is right next to and sometimes a better mod than Bushwheels, Borer prop, AOSS, and 3 inch gear for a working cub. Comes off in 10 min/On in 20 min. Best place for dead meat/fish, oil, fuel, wing struts, props, high lift jacks, lumber, waders, ect! DENNY

    With the carbon concepts Pod I bulk out with 2 light docs and 160 lbs of medical gear, just under 2000 lb and right at the aft CG. Without it the cargo capacity would be less than half. Often wish I had the deeper version.

    Anyone on here know what kind of pod this dude "Isaac Landecker" who has some cool videos on YouTube is using? It's an open top pod; that has some QD latch system? He lands pops it off in a few minutes, then pulls it around like a toboggan full of gear, then simply pops it back on, and back in the air in minutes!
    Sure like to know who builds them like this?????
