It would be so much easier and avoid me having to cut the ducting to accommodate a larger tank. The K-85 is a little thirsty and just concerned about the stock tank being just a hair too small but donít know. What kind of flight time do you think will you be shooting for? I imagine most of the time I will be flying at 50-60% throttle.
Manual says 300 grams/10.6 Oz a minute WOT. I don't think I will be flying it wide open much at all. The tank is 72 Oz. With a hopper tank on the wing for taxi out and 10 Oz for reserve I believe I will safely get a 6 to upwards a 7 minute flight which amI totally good with. Keeps it fun and doesn't get boring.
