All I have heard is that a person can do is add another header tank, (2) header tanks one on each size to increase fuel payload. Are there any aftermarket products or somehting someone has done to increase flight time, with a larger fuel tank?

Venture 50 fuel tank

Ok, I will have to get a picture of this for anyone intersted, but this may take me a while, I am so busy with moving now.

I was able to modify my frame, dremel cutting off the front of the frame and sanding down any sharp edges. I did this after I had purchased a 60 sized raptor fuel tank and test fitted it into the frame of a Venture at the Local Hobby Shop. Anyway the width is perfect, but not the length hence the frame modification.

Long story short, I get up to 20 minutes of flight time now, everyone at the flying feild thinks it is an exellent idea for the Venture 50 and the only CG fixed needed was a couple of clicks on the pitch trim, because it was a little nose heavy with a full tank.

Try part number KSJ932 (made for Voyager, but prettty sure it will fit the Venture). About $14 at Horizon Hobby.

Don't sweat the petty stuff...
