Lots of duct tape...

Just kidding man.. I don't know of anyone who has done this the rear frames on the 60-90 sized birds are different as well as the little nipples that hold the tank in place are placed differently.. the frames on the R50v2 are also quite a bit narrower than the 60-90 sized tanks

Just my .02

There's been alot of people stuffing R60 tanks in R50's. I think Joe was the first.
Here's a LINK

I also have had success with stuffing a rectangular 18oz airplane tank into the Raptor 30/50 frames.

Wow I would have never thought... I guess the key word there is stuffing lol

Thats one tight space in there hehe Thanks for the correction.. I just might have to try this myself.. Any thoughts on CG? or performance untill you burn off some of the fuel?
