I need to replace the dubro airplane 10oz tank on my converted Raptor gasser. Is there anything better or more gas specific out there that anyone can recommend or uses?

Gas tank should be OK as is but you'll definitely have to replace the fuel lines and possible the stopper as well.....

Been there, done that and old enough to know better.....

We are purchasing clear ones from ZYHOBBY and using them in our EASY STIK planes with a 20cc (15 and counting) and so far like them.

You might find something suitable for your heli.

Dubro tanks work fine for Gas.... airplane guys used nothing but Dubros and Sullivans for years and years before the 3D guys got hyper weight concious and some of them started using converted soda bottles.

I fact, I believe the dubro stopper design is less prone to leak than drilling holes in a tank and using fittings. Others may disagree.

Just use the brown gas conversion stopper and your fine.

If you dont like DuBro, you can try Sullivan. Or one of the clear soda bottle style tanks
