You expect a series-us answer?

As Forest Gump would say: for no particular reason.

- Restraint, one tank gets heavy. Violent IMAC maneuvers.
- Percentage of air left in lag tank near the completion of the flight.
- Large tanks get so long. Hard to scavenge straight fuel in the lower 1/3 of your fuel capacity.
- Wanted to try it
-Cool factor

I expect to go back to a 1.5L single fuel cell if this causes any doubt. I truly wish I would have tried this in a small aerobatic airframe earlier.
I have used header tanks in cross country events. We also used a baffled/header tank in Control Line Stunters.

Waiting for a little silicone to cure. So I can remove my tape, holding things in place. Then I can take the photo I promised Brent. Add, I need to locate my pocket camera (from the fun-fly).

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

First off. Violent maneuvers and IMAC do not go in the same sentence.....


If your worried about volume of air in the tank you should set-up a header tank instead. Never have to worry about air again

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Nice looking setup Dale!

But it looks as though all your weight is strapped to one common tie-down as would one single large tank. Perhaps I missed something in the pics! Definitely the cool factor....Twin engine..Twin batts..Twin tanks..Twin wheels..Twin Rx....

I think you should buy a Quad!!!

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

All my bottle tanks get a cradle that holds the neck of the bottle. Then a top quality Ty-Rap holds the neck hard. The Velcro straps simply stabilize the back end of the tank, each tank in this case. Also bonded together with clear silicone to marry them together.

Jack you will love the tank mounts I do. Can't wait for our annual meeting at Drayton Valley.

I will be flying SukTwo out at Alberta's Littlest Airport for a pile of flights to check my tank set-up. Crazy big sky to float home from.

Yes they look great Dale...sweet setup for sure and I fully understand some of your reasoning!!......(joking)!

But in the end, don't you still have the same weight pulling G's on essentially the same mounting area?

If I say yes, we don't argue.
