Thanks for the info Pete it helps. We are pretty sure the original factory tank was for glo at 28 oz. A 20 oz tank just might be the ticket.

Dennis ..........if the model was originally designed around a large 2 or 4 stroke glow ,it probably needed that 28 oz tank.
With the "mileage" a modern gasoline engine gets an 18 or 20 oz tank is plenty.
My 1/3 Sig Spacewalker has a Quadra 38cc and I use a 16oz tank which is a little small I find.

Thanks Kevin we figured that was the case I was just wondering what size and times others were getting with a comparable motor. All of this is a big help so thanks again one and all.

I flew my 80" Tree Hopper, which is 14.5 lbs empty on a 16oz tank fueling a G23 and I purposely filled her up and kept flying at various throttle settings until I ran out of fuel. It went for a solid 38 minutes.

I am putting a DA50 in my Dave Patrick Edge 540 and will be using a 16oz tank and was told by several folks that I should expect to get around the 15 min. mark. Flying IMAC requires only about an 8 minute flight so the 16 oz should give me pleanty of reserve. But I have to tell you, that tank sure looks small in this plane but why go larger than you'll ever require?
