Re: Water/Soda Bottle Fuel Tank Tutorial...

I have made a few of them a couple years ago for my planes, work really well not to mention they are see though and light. I use the original cap with the dubro stopper, the backing plate from a psp cap from thunder bolt, and made a front plate with some aluminum flat bar. Drilled three holes in it and sandwiched the plastic water botttle cap in it.
You cant use a bottle and cap where there is a foam top that does the sealing, as the gas will eat it up and it will leak. The water bottle caps have a lip inside that does the sealing. Fuji water bottles are nice cause they are flat sided, but a round one can be used as well.
