Default ys63 fuel consumpsion

I am trying to mount my ys63s in a funtana 40S and I can't put too big a fuel tank in it.

Probuild said a 63 would use 1/2oz. per min. , but did not say if that was full throttle or less some times.

I don't have a their site name to go to them. If anyone has contact info for Probuild I would like to contact them.

I think I can get a 8 oz. tank in, have not tried it. If I can get a little better than 1/2 oz. per min. not running full out I will try a 8 oz. tank.

never mind, don't really need help on this anyway!

I will just go with the 1/2 oz per min.
I am putting in a 12 oz. tank, its tight and I will have to cut some supporting members to get it in.

With the CG in mind you may want to move the tank aft into the radio bay , with the YS pressurized fuel system it's not a problem and with the CG moved back you'll find the funtana 3ds better

thanks for the help. Had not though of putting it back. Not used to a engine with that much pressure.

went and looked at the idea of moving the tank back, it would have to be behind the wing toward the tail. The wing fills that area, I can shoe horn it in the front.
thanks for the help.

can't really do that as the wing fits into the fuse and does not leave room. I have it in the nose , had to cut a little and reinforce.

thanks

I have been trying several combinations of tanks in a H9 twist 60 and although it is not a YS 63 my 115 fz will run for 6 + minutes on a 9.1 oz tank. I will bet your 63 is pretty good on fuel.

I was told 1/2 oz per min. I am putting a 12 oz. tank in it. Should be good I generally fly about 12 to 15 min max . I like to have some extra time, in case some one is dead stick or something.
