Default Gas Tank 50cc gas 540

Where is the best place to mount a gas tank forward or aft of the wing tube for best balancing.

Behind COG/Tube would make flying more excicting till the gas burnt off. Weight would shift forward for better landing with the tank emptied. You probably would not be able to notice much diference either way.

I always try to position the tank over the CG. Gas engines can easily pull from a tank centered over the CG. This way, there is no change in balance from full tank to empty.
