Hi

I have one of these and have run into he same issue with the fuel tank with the DLE 35 installation. I have considered mounting the tank sideways on the floor but I think it will end up causing fuel starvation problems particularly during a right turn when the fuel level is low.

Have you changed the clunk set up in the tank to try and improve the fuel pick up?
I used a Sulivan slant 16 oz tank and mounted it facing forward. This tank just fit and with the slant the lines are accessable. Had to cut and modify to make it fit but fits well.

I've looked for alternate tanks and in the end ended up cutting my motor box to set the tank on the floor in the correct orientation.
The tank now fits between the firewall and instrument panel without altering the panel. I also shortened the motor box by 1" so I could slide it in far enough in without hitting the instrument panel.
When I cut the box I was able to use one of the motor templates to make a new back side.
My only concern is that the fuel lines need to run between the carb and muffler so I will probably add some heat shielding around the fuel lines.

Hanger 9 Beaver, Landing Gear Mods for Float Set-up

The instructions for this model suggest the builder silicone the landing gear farings to the fuselage.
Since I have order the H9 float set up and plan on flying this model off of grass and water I want to be able to remove the landing gear and farings when mounting the floats.
The solution I came up was to mount the faring permanently to the landing gear on dowel pins to maintain the spacing between the gear leg and the faring. This also keeps the faring tight to the fuselage.
To protect the Ultracote from damage and to give the faring a finished look I trimmed the edge of the faring with Fourmost 1/8" U trim.
I also didn't like the square cut ends on the landing gear legs and have rounded them for a cleaner look

Re: 30CC Hanger 9 Beaver

A few pics of the new registration . Had them made at a graphics store here in Barrie. Forgot that I needed a left and right and had 2 left hand made. Had to go back and get a right hand one made. The airplane is being made to look like the full size in Temagami belonging to Lakeland Aviation. On the DHC2 site, it is #1023.
Working on installing the wing servos now. Have to do the wingtips in red yet.
New DLE 35 RA should be here next week from AMR. Still working on which lighting system to use.

Re: 30CC Hanger 9 Beaver

Last week went to Costco and bought a 3 pack of Snap On flashlights for $20.
These flashlights have Cree LED's in them and operate on three AAA cells at 4.5 volts. Took them apart to get the reflector and bulb out to use for landing lights in the wings. Soldered on a 36" JR extension and installed them into the leading edge after opening the leading edge to fit the reflector. They are a perfect fit and are held in place with clear silicone. The lens cover will be held in place with GOOP. Now I have to find an alternating flasher unit that operates on 4.5 volts.
The ED unit is a bit pricey for all the lights ( wing tip red and green, wing tip strobe lights, tail light, red beacon, landing lights) for $220.
Any help where I can find such a unit would be greatly appreciated.
Doug
