Default Hayes 2oz tanks

Would anyone have one or two they would let go of?

Default Hates 2oz tanks

Err why does it have to be a Hayes one? A quick check on Ebay just now pulls up over a dozen entries under a search for '2-ounce clunk tank' -including veco, dubro and other brands; sullivan make multiple types in the 2 oz capacity -all readily available.

Hayes tanks are really nice fuel tanks. I have two 2-ounce tanks, a 7oz and a couple 8 ounce tanks. I won't give mine up though. I have one of the 2-ounce tanks in a small Norvel 1/2a ARF trainer. It fits nicely,

I guess that's my fault, as I recommended them on another forum...

The Hayes tank don't have the big heavy rubber bungy, only a small o-ring, and that keeps the weight down. Plus there are no brass tubes that one has to bend and mess with etc.

The Thunder Tiger tanks use the same principle. There is, or was, a very nice 2.5oz that I like to use for the Norvel .074RC engine.

Yes it is! And I am going with a 7x3 prop on my Norvel .074.
