Default RE: Remote Fuel Tank

That's the exact same thing I was wanting to do. I planned to place a 10oz tank between formers F5 and F6 near the CG, and pump the fuel up to the engine, leaving the engine pop free for the two servo's... a Hitec HS-425BB for the elevator using a direct link, and a Hitec HS-55 Sub micro servo for the throttle, also direct link. Other mods... B&D pneumatic gear, only two servos up front (nosegear/throttle and aileron), and removable stab/upper fin to access servos in engine pod (I read that tip in another posting, but can't remember which one). As for power, I was going to try the Tower Hobbies .46

Hopefully, I'll finish building my Top Flight Contender in a few weeks and will be able to start on the NorthStar, so I will be very interested to know how you are coming along with yours.
