Put a tee piece in the supply line to the carb with a bung in it and a clamp on the line from the tee piece to the carb. To refuel simply clamp off the line to the carb and fill thorugh the tee. When tank is full plug the ine and release the clamp and you are good to go.

Or... you can fabricate a bracket to fit the 'Kwik-fill' fueling valve from Du-Bro that plank pilots use. Thats what I have on both my 50s... just plug and fill, the valve automatically shuts off fuel to carb to avoid flooding. Easy as it gets IMO.

yup! just did this to my fuel hungry .70 Pantera and liked it so much I've done it to my other nitro heli and started putting them on my nitro planes. sheesh, it's so much easier! I wish I'd done this YEARS ago!

Yup, those are great !! Have used them myself on planks....

They're great right up to the point they wear and start suckin air, causing your motor to go lean..... Hopefully it can be caught before ruining the motors !!
