I cant believe the quality of the kit other than those cheap fuel tank mounts rubber stars is there a way to make the fuel tank firmer in the frame

Windspiel,
Don't worry about those.
I have been flying the SYlphide 50 for over a year with the same mounts and no problems.
I don't expect the AS50 to have any problems either (when I get her in the air).
I'm just waiting on some K&S bits and an IMZ motor mount. Have the hard dampners ready to go, some light paddles, V blades, look out!!!

In order to answer your question, if you want to firm up the tank, just put a bit of DS foam tape in the tank dimples. THat will do it.

A lot of the bling is just recycled from the Voyager IMZ.
I have ordered the K&S Crossmember set (to add rigidity and save weight- YEAH) and just a bunch of main masts and spindles.
That should keep me in the air for a while.

the idea behind them is to stop vibration in the tank. Major tip thread lock the nut that holds the fuel tank bung in place. Mine came loose and i had to take the tank out and putting tose on when its built is a real pain
