Does anyone happen to know if you can fit fuel drums inside of a 407 cabin? We can in in the L-3 and are curious if the same is possible if we were ever to upgrade to a 407. 

 

Also, if anyone has a detailed picture of internal cabin dimensions that would be handy as well. 

 

Thanks

Shouldn't they be the same internal dimensions as the L-3?

The 407 cabin is a bit wider and bigger overall. At least that's what it says on paper. 

 

Our only concern is that on the 407 there is an "arm rest" kind of box thing between the rear facing seats. After some digging we found that this is actually part of the forward fuel cell and is structural. 

 

It would be really nice to be able to put two fuel drums inside like we can do on the L3 but I'm not sure it's a deal breaker.
