'sides, if you are an electric guy just tryin' out nitro you wont know what to do with more than 5 mins of flight
Spoiling for a fight eh? T'sall good. I do get an extra minute of flight from my 700n vs my Logo 600 - 7:30 vs 6:30. But that's an extra 7.5 minutes of "collective management". What the he11 is that anyway?

I have ran header tanks for years. I just like the extra piece of mind knowing that I can do full 3D all the way to the end of the tank

It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!

Sounds like a preference issue. With proper maintenance any of those sounds like it will work.

The only things I use a header for is to ensure that 1, the engine doesnt lean out at the end of a tank and 2, is that in case of the "unthinkable" 99out of 100 times it will break away and yank the fuel supply from the engine in the event you dont get the Thold flipped before impact.

Keep ur head out the dirt only in the grass

I did not even consider the "anti-chicken-dance-defence-factor". (Say it ten times real fast! Bet ya can't!) That is almost enough all by itself for me.

Briliant!

While you still can use header tank with OS BLC, main reason for not using is to reduce the AUW.

It is funny when people go to war over 1/4 lb difference on heli weight but yet they slap the weight back on with the fully loaded header tank of 3-4oz of permanent weight. I say permanent because most land when the main goes empty.
