Does anyone have any experience or knowledge of a removable champ wing tank? I am thinking of adding small capacity tanks to each wing, but need them both to be removable so they can be filled off site and reinstalled in the wing full.Any thoughts or suggestions? Can this done with a field approval?
quick release fittings, etc.

Carlton your idea is going to require the FAA Aircraft Certification Office (ACO) in your region and an extensive engineering study of the final strutural integrity of the wing with the tank installed. You have to remember who governs certificated aircraft and nothing is simple. If you were working with an aircraft certified as Experimental and you were the builder then anything you could conceive would be acceptable.
