Default YS 115s and fuel consuption

Hi,

What´s the consumption of YS 115s? Just ordered a GP Reactor Biplane 61 ARF and need to know how big fuel tank to get to 3D for about 12 to 15 minutes?

By the way, is a 115 enough to 3D it as total weight should be around 7 LB?

Any recommendation for the prop size - APC is available here?

Is Byron 20/20 ok with this engine or should I go with Byron Rotor 30% with 20% low vis oil?

Many thanks for your help :-)

Yeppe

I get 10 minutes of hard 3D on a 6 lb profile with a little to spare with a 13oz tank. 16x6 Xoar or APC works well.
