Fitted Header tank

I removed one of the main shaft bearing holder bolts and used a 30mm extension ally hex from my Raptor spares and threaded bar on the end .

Then just bolted on the header , im very pleased .

From just running my engine in I was not happy running with out a header tank when the fuel got low , yes I could have bought a fuel magnet but I still dont think its as good as a header tank.

It also misses canopy

Could you post a picture of the heli with the canopy on from the front so we can see how far the header tank hangs out to the right?

Thanks

I think it looks more balanced now ,theres is a gap on mine between the two tanks you could easily go down to around a 27mm extension but im happy with mine , for those who have good eyes my tail is not fitted as I broke one of the tail gears

UPDATE , I just managed to cut 6mm off the hex extension which takes the extension down to 24mm , there still a little gap between the tanks .

Will post another photo asap
