Gas
I don't see the tank. I just fill it to the top by looking through the top of the canopy while filling and time the flight. I fly for 15 minutes mostly at my medium speed 1630 rpms and I cannot finish the tank even if I don't land until the end. Timer goes off and I come in, there is usually about 3oz left (guesstimate) out of the 16oz tank.

Install the 16oz Dubro tank like I did in your Spectra-g, set your timer accordingly and don't bother looking at the tank. Of course make sure you test the time as it depends on your rpm settings, how hard you fly, and how rich your needle settings are.

Fuel Sight Gauge
My fuel level drove me nuts also last fall. I pondering comming out of the Minair tank on the new build, with two nipples, at top and bottom elevation, run over horisontally over too - two miniar 90's and run a sight level tube in the vertical posistion some where near the back beyond the C- Volt. Tubing that I tried so far is a frosted Nylon - hard high pressure tube which is a bit to frosted in color and a bit to ridged to get over a barb. The clear vinyl material although user friendly, is skeptic do to compatability with the Ozark and I hate to use Glass pipett and O rings.

Any good alternative material choice's ?? Which are clear??
Also stareing at a set of violet saddle tanks Left and Right side.
If I can get em under the hood I going to fab a cartridge style saddle bracket.

Only because I yet have been able to figuire out the timer on my 9 - C
and pushing that Knob just before spool up give's me the willies.

Flight counters
I bought them years ago (back in the 90's) from an auto store like Auto Zone but back then it was called something else. They were called "mileage minder" and you used to the set the odometer reading of your next oil change so you wouldn't forget. They were under $2 and perfect for my models.

See a picture in my gallery with all 8 of them (one for each model) and the number of flights on each. I date the first flight date and put the model name on each.
