I run one on mine as well. I run a YS 91 ST with the omi fuel magnet and header tank. I like the extra bit of fuel on it and it is a good stopping point once I see it going down.

I fly a header on all my engines that run on header pressure. It makes them run smooth throughout the whole tank with no change as it get close to empty.

Fly it like you stole it!

I run HT on all my nitro birds.

Gives me an xtra bit of fuel and traps all those pesky bubbles.

No header tank here, just fuel magnet.
Notice most of the top pro's flying the 700 aggresively without a header tank and just a fuel magnet. Works more than perfect.

Not saying not to put one on if you want one, you just don't NEED one.

no header tank for me less fuel lines to run and the heli looks cleaner without a bulkey header tank hanging from the side.

I use a header tank on all my nitros. It does have a small benifit if you fly alot of 3D. It's not difficult to set up, it's cheap, and it allows you to fly the entire main tank without the engine leaning out at the end.

It may only extend flight times about 2 minutes, but that's alot when you are actually flying. It's really more about personal preference though.
