Features and Equipment
The H35 featured a V-tail design, giving the plane a distinctive appearance. The V-tail design reduced the number of flying surfaces from three to two, as compared to a standard, straight-tail plane. It was thought this design would also reduce drag, weight and production costs. The plane also featured two small rear windows, long-chord stabilators and a single, throw-over yoke control. The plane sported optional in-wing auxillary tanks (20 gal. total), individually adjustable front seats and front and rear seat armrests. Among other changes this year were vernier engine controls and a hydraulic (engine oil) propeller pitch change. The gear handle was positioned on the right-side of the cockpit and the flap control was on the left. The G35 used “sigh and touch” gear and flap control technology. It also sported electric primer to all cylinders, an automatic fuel mixture control and a beefier structure throughout.
