For petes sake we are talking about a fuel tank in a simple and cheap model. Keep a sense of proporting and dont go over the top.

Before long you will be holding your turbine on with high tensile bolts when a simple wood screw will do
Well said

Nice generlisation Dennis, but I certainly would not hold any turbine over a 120 with wood screws.

Wondered where I was going wrong and wasting money using high tensile Allen head bolts to mount my turbines. Wood screws are a whole lot cheaper!

I have a neighbour who has a &pound;400 Austin Metro who has fitted a &pound;2000 stereo and a &pound;500 alarm to protect the stereo from theft.

Folk are very strange at times but we all set our own priorities and standards however silly they may seem to others.

Wood screws are absolutely fine, as long as the application is appropriate. Flew MANY years with 30 lbs thrust turbines in an Isobar and HotSpot with wood screws. They, of course, need to be sized appropriately and need to go into stout enough material and be locked in with CA adhesive.

Duplicate. Lots of R/C U problems. Why don't they ever fix it???

The right tool the right job. That works for you that's great but there's many more than one way to skin a cat. I choose to over engineer but that's just me.

I concur, nothing wrong with bolts and lock nuts. Have used that many times too. But the point is no one should make statements like "I certainly would not hold any turbine over a 120 with wood screws". Little wood screws into inadequate material? Yeah, that is bad. But properly sized ones into the right material, a very good installation.

Regarding a 30 lb turbine and say a 4 mm wood screw

I set you this challange. Screw the screw into a piece of wood up to the head but with a piece of wire in a loop around it. Now take some weights and hang them off the wire. If that wont support over 50 + pounds I will eat my hat if indeed I had one. It does of course assume a decent piece of wood but then that should also be the case with the bolt solution.
 Now that is just one screw and with our turbines we generally have 4 screws.

Any one think this screw will not support 50 lbs

And you can easily remove the turbine if you need to. And no it will not remove itsself as I can hear someone saying

They used screws instead of bolts and it fell off and broke

What ever works and gives you confidence is fine. I just prefer FCT Tanks.

Not at all, you said "No one should make statements like" and then quoted me.
