    ZDZ 210 fuel tank size?

    I want to know what size tank i need for the 210? Figure 10 min of 3D flying with a little extra to spare. What is the best hand starting procedure on this engine. Is it better to use a break in oil before i go synthetic or is it okay to go to pure synthetic right away? I got the engine today and is amazed of the size. I'm gonna have fun with this one...

    Thanks

    Best hand starting...start with rich needles (not sure what settings that is). 5-5-1 method. 5 flips full choke, wot, ignition off. 5 flips no choke, wot, ignition off, 1 flip no choke, high idle, ignition on.

    32:1 of any good oil, synth or regular for break in. 40:1 after break in. I will prolly just continue to run 32:1 on my two ZDZ's forever.

    you will be burning about 3 oz a min at the most doing that type of flying... if you were to burn 5 oz per minute at full throttle you would be dry at 10 min.

    RE: ZDZ 210 fuel tank size?

    I missed that for some reason in my web searching? I'm a little cramped for room because of rear induction on the ZDZ 120 B2RV. Could I stand it on end with the connections up? If so then I would be at the CG point, otherwise she'll be pretty far aft of CG.
