Default RV12iS Gross Weight increase

Would the RV12iS be capable of handling a higher gross weight (1320) in the event the FAA increases the LSA category weight limit ? Note: Vspeeds would likely chage.

Unlikely. The structure was specifically designed for that max gross weight.

Every Vans Design would have been flown over the designed weight, it would happen constantly! Only trouble is everytime someone does they are in test pilot territory!!
