Hi!
How is the tank mounted? Center of tank should be in-line with center of carb when plane sits horisontal.

Hi!
By "toyish" I meant that all you have to do to make it work is turning a switch! No more engine fiddling and tuning, which to me is one lost dimension of the hobby.

Hi!
On most modern glow engines there are no exhaust gasket. But if you want one ,go ahead and use one. You can cut one out from thick paper. Silicon is no good as it will come loose with time.
