Default RE: Showtime 50 anyone?


1) I ended up using a 10 oz (#1) and a 2oz (#2) tank. I use a YS engine that doesn't use pressure of exhaust. In your case, pipe it as follows:
Engine exhaust to #1 pressure. #1 exit to #2 pressure. #2 exit to engine carb.
I use #2 tank as a header tank, very common in helis. It traps most of the bubbles sucked by the clunk in tank #1. Tank #2 doesn't have a clunk. Instead, it has the brass tube stop in the middle of the tank. I can only get 1 oz out. Than means I can also trap 1 oz of bubbles.
2) See picture for tank mounting.
3) You balance the plane empty.

In your case you may need a pump with this setup.

Good luck and have fun!
