OS BGX-1 3500 -- Tank Size

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Just setting up my new 1/3 Spacewalker and going to use a OS BGX-1 that I have, just wondering if anyone that has used this engine on the size of fuel tank required to give a flight time of 12-15 minutes.

Re: OS BGX-1 3500 -- Tank Size

I think I used a 24oz tank when I had mine . it's not all that bad on fuel if you stay off the throttle .if you plan on running it hard you may even want to go bigger than 24. even a 32oz if you fly wide open for the whole flight . it really has more to do with the way you fly I would start with a 24 and do some shorter flights in the beginning just to see how much you are using I am sure it will be enough.
