Thread: Fuel tank sizes
07/11/2018 14:04:52

Not a problem Roger. My planc seems ideal for the job, only problem I can see is when the halves are hot enough to remove from heat and join. Will have to experiment. Thanks for your help. Cheers

Hi Roger, thanks for the heads up re tank welding. As I am Welsh I have what's called a "bara planc" used to make welsh cakes lol. It is a round cast iron plate 12inches dia by about half inch thick which can easily be used to heat up the tank halves. When build time allows I will give it a go. Thanks

Exactly Nigel, tank will be clean as its unused, too big for my current build, and too small for my other models lol.Testing over a few months is a good idea too. Cheers

Hi all, I am in process of building now, but some time I will sort out the tank. I will give the Locktite plastic glue ago. I have a redSlec tank that is not in use, so I will use it as a test project and post results. Thanks for you help. Cheers

I too like this adhesive join method. Can anyone say what actual material tanks are made from ? Cheers

Cheers Don. You are right, I'll have a go at welding tanks, or fly more reservedly on one ,lol. It feeds a 40 4stroke. Cheers

Hi all, my current build can only take a blue slec 4oz fuel tank,42mmx42 mm. I would like to have a longer flying time. I have always used slec square tanks, but I wondered if there are other tanks out there with different dimentions  ie longer and thinner, not over 42 mm wide,if there is such a thing. Cheers.

Hi Bernard, welcome to the forum. The Jodel is a fine looking model, I bet it flies well too. I am an old guy and have been building from plans and flying for over 30years In that time I bought ONE Artf, a trainer for my grand son as he was in a hurry to learn to fly before going to university. LoL I am an ic nut but trying to learn about elecrtic S. Cheers

Sim or not, nice bit of flying Dave. Club members will say of a model " that flies well " it won't unless you have a good pilot lol. Cheers
