Full throttle on the MOki is 2.5 oz/min so a 18 - 22 oz tank is what you want. I think a 22x8 is a great place to start. You also want to think about a pump for the fuel. This motor may be only adequate for a plane of this size as it would seem a 50cc gasser would be better suited for a 84" edge.

If it were me, i wouldn't solder the connections as solder joints are more apt to fail over time and they're a #$%# to take apart!! What i do is use heat shrink tubing and shrink the tubing over connector. This way, they will never pull out. Tape would work too but i prefer tubing....makes for a cleaner install.
What I think Dave meant is that he cuts the servo lead, keeping the fatory connector, and solders the length of wire he needs in between.

There was a thread last year on this.
oh...well in that case I still wouldn't solder them though..but i'm sure it would work fine, assuming the soldering job was done correctly. I guess it's a personal preferance thing...although soldering would save a fair bit of $$$ on extensions...
