I installed the KSJ 932 tanks into both my voyagers and it has almost doubled the flying times , close to 15 minutes.These tanks need no modifications to be done , just remove std tank and slip in.

With the 932 tank + 2 once header this time is close to 20 minutes with GV1 running.

What kind of engine and head speed are you running on them?

I just got my Voyager up and running again today, and have the 932 tank in it. I did not time it yet, but I know it was longer than the 8 minutes I was running on the stock tank. Yet it did not seem like 15 minutes to me. I am thinking I got about 12 minutes with the OS 50, running a 1800rpm head speed, before it got to the header. I like to run my engines a little on the rich side also.

Best I could get with larger tank and 2 oz. header tank is about 15 minutes. I am running a little on the rich side and have not spent too much time setting up my engine for full power. Running a JR IMZ RV50S. A very good improvement to make to increase fuel efficency is to fit the 10 tooth pinion from K&S. The 50 engines seem to appreciate this gearing as well.

No rain on flying days:)

The fuel lines should be at the rear, ie.engine side. I found I had to use a header tank for mine but I have the JR motor with a side mounted carb.

My exhaust lines goes to the top , and my inlet to my header comes from the other sides top.
My tanks are mounted such that the outlets/inlets from the tank face the engine / tail
