    Veco is gone I think. Acme has tanks. Brodak also. Perfect brand fuel tanks come up on eBay quite a bit.

    Why a Veco in particular? What type of tank was he running?

    Contains only the finest ingredients, Methanol, Castor Oil and Nitromethane

    RE: fuel tanks?

    Hi Jetpack, thanks for the reply!!
    he had a triangle tank, flat against the fuselage and top and bottom tapered to the point out. it was the original tank he used last in the mid 70's and i suspect it may be residue?? but not sure. anyway, on his first flying session in 35 years, two other tanks off of fellow circle burners were tried and the Veco allowed a full run. I haven't started building my next C/L, and I usually get SIG and Brodak equipment to work with.......

    have you or know of someone who has, run one of the new Evolution engines?? LHS down the road has a nice unflown PT-17 profile with a .51 Evolution on it......$60.00

    What you need is a "chicken hopper" tank. Makes perfect runs from full to empty. I have a whole drawer full of them from my old slow combat days.
