    I use a 4 oz. with a Magnum .25 but I would suggest a 6 oz. if you use the 35.

    RE: Quick Question- Gremlin fuel tank

    I went with the 6oz and my run time was 5 minutes till bone dry during break in. Granted this was WOT with half the time gurgling in a heavy 4 stroke.....

    I am hoping for 10 minute runs in the air. we shall see.....

    RE: Quick Question- Gremlin fuel tank

    I'm running an 8 oz tank with an OS .46AX. (Some other muffler, I bashed the OS one)

    APC 12.25x3.75 prop- very low pitch so there's lots of pull, but not that fast.

    10% Omega fuel.

    Tape covering except Monokote on fins & elevons.

    Flies like a Stick. Fairly gentle, even on high rates. Needs rudders.

    Just to close this up for future readers.....

    The 6oz/ OS35 combo gave me easy 10 minute flight times with plenty of high speed runs.

    Thanks all.
