I am new to this NG and working on my 4th RC airplane. I am building a
1/6th scale Dh2 Beaver on floats (96" span) and am in the process of
installing a Du Bro 24 oz fuel tank to go with a Super Tiger .90 -2 stroke.
Tank is aproximately 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" by about 8 inches long with the stopper
and lines at one end .....The problem I see is that the Clunker stays to the
bottom of the tank every which way I turn the tank like it is supposed to
except if I put the plane into a nose dive...the clunk dosen't slide itself
to the front (towards the stopper) of the tank as I think the fuel tubing
that came with the tank is too stiff to allow this.... I think the engine
would stall if I had half a tank of fuel and was decending with the plane...
I am thinking of putting the tank in on a slope upwards towards the firewall
to perhaps counter this problem...or... cut the tubing so the clunk sits
about half way down the tank?...
