I'm building a 600n Sup. Pro. Do I need a header tank and if so what one works best?

Thanks Ed

No you don't need one...but you should have one. They are cheap insurance against a flame out because of an air bubble you picked up in the line.

I've never used a header tank on mine. FuelMagnet by OMI is a great option instead of the header.

I agree, you don't need one, but I like flying with one. Your choice.

Another way to look at is that you can run the main tank lower than you would otherwise. That means more flight time.

I have flown the 600N with and without a header tank. I did not have any special fuel magnets or anything, just the stock clunk set up. I never had any problems either way. I went back to the header tank for the extra minute or two of flight time. At my skill level the extra weight does not make any difference and I need all the flight time I can get.
I am using a RJX 2oz. tank and aluminum mount. Looks nice.

Header Tank

I used Quick UK's header tank and their mounting system. Quality setup, and works great, also has a certain bling value. Comes in various colors.

Quick UK's info on the header tank and mount can be found here:
http://www.quickuk.eu/cat/engines__...uel_supply.html

See my picture with the tank mounted. Makes for a very clean install...

Check with your LHS for price and availability. I went to Hobby Hut for the tank and ordered the mount direct from Quick UK. Good exchange rate for US buyers and I had the mount in one week.
