Default RE: Can i install a larger fuel tank on a cox .049

When I run my Rascal 27 on an external .6oz tank with a TeeDee .020 using a PeeWee throttle sleeve I get consistent runs of 15+ minutes and the only indication that it is going to quit is the RPMs go up a for few seconds as the tank goes dry. I had a PeeWee that would run a 1/3oz tank dry, but I had to launch it a bit rich, gain some altitude and then dive to unload the prop and it would run fine until the last minute or so when it would spit and sputter until the tank ran dry. Maybe TeeDees suck more.
