Default Quick Question- Gremlin fuel tank

Hey all stuck at work and need to place and order....What size fuel tanks are you stuffing in your RA Cores Gremlins?

Engine will be a OS 25 or possibly OS 35.

TIA!!!

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

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.....

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.
