Hi,

I am planning on putting a .80 4 stroke on my Fokker DVII.  The fuel tank supplied with the kit is 8oz, which seems a bit small.  How long would you estimate my flight time to be with an engine that size?

Depends on throttle use but duration will never as long as you'd like Andy - perhaps no more than 10 mins? Get a bigger one say 12-14oz if it'll fit.

Going on this data .80 4 stroke should last roughly  6 1/2 min at full throttle
