Default tank size for a Jett LX engine

how much flight time can I expect on a 14 oz ?

I am deciding what size tank to order for my Cermark F-16

the 16 oz would fit with minor surgery, and I know the LX is a thursty runner... or a 18 oz?[X(]

thanks for the info,

Vasek

At full throttle at 15,000 rpm, it drinks a little bit over 1.7oz per minute

On 14oz, figure on 12oz of good usable fuel, and somewhere around 6-7 minutes of flight time.

A 16oz tank will help with another minute or two.

If you are in the market for a different tank, may I suggest the Tetra 500 cc bubble tank. (appx 17.5oz) Call Central Hobbies.

www.centralhobbies.com

Never worry about a fuel system issue again (as long as you vent and fill it properly). Plus, there is no 'unusable' fuel. You can run it down to the very last drop and the mixture will never change.
