600N built and almost ready to fly
Well I finished assembly last night, still going to go through it this week to make sure everything is lock tighted etc. O also noticed everyone is running the rubber gromets on their servos so I will be installing them this week. Anyway I took some pics this morning because this is probably the last time it will ever be this clean enjoy.

looks nice......

remember with the fuel magnet you need to refuel right after flying so the hot gases dont kill the sponge.

thnaks for the tip Ink, I will definately look out for that. I do have a question concerning the clunk. If the fuel line is just long enough not to hit the end of the tank on the plug side of the tank, it wont even come close to reaching the other side of the tank. Any tips on the best setup there? My fuel line seems kind of stiff and the magnet seems very light. I really dont want to flame out first time I take this thing inverted.

Hey ev01,

Don't worry once the magnet gets loaded up with fuel it will be like a lead weight!!!

If you have cut the clunk line to the specifications then it should be fine, what you want is for it not to get stuck in the tank.

Cheers!

mine is almost to the back of the tank also when the fuel magnet gets wet from fuel its heavier. with this magnet you can pull every last drop out of the tank. also dont use the fuel line that came with the kit it will crap out and get soft on you after a short while. i use hayes black fuel line in my tanks.

Thats not true,we have one in a synergy that you can see real easy,and his was floating half way up with a full tank.DOUG

Beautiful job!
Nice clean install there.
Thanks for the kind words guys, I do take pride in my work when I build a model so it feels good when other people notice how much time I put into it. I owe alot to Tom or "TT2" on here. We have been learning alot of this stuff together, but I borrowed heavily from his setup and advise while building. He also has a great looking and flying bird that has been makng me green with envy all summer.

MR10X:

Yes!, But watch it when the fuel level gets lower, with the magnet loaded with fuel it should be sufficient to make the magnet sink with the level of the fuel tank.

Unless!, the clunk line has been cut too short and there is not enough line to allow the magnet to do it's job!.

Cheers!

The fuel magnet will always float because the fuel in the magnet is the same weight as the fuel it floats in.Yes i know they work,i have one.YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE..IF YOU LIVE IT RIGHT THATS ALL YOU NEED

... but add the aluminum bit weighs more than the fuel so tho whole lot sinks

It doesn't sink,it floats,i have one i have seen it. They do what they are suppose to do and that is gets all the fuel out,even if it floats.It does not sink to the bottom of the tank like a weighted clunk.DOUG

It floats because of the foam,we had to put foam in our fiberglass RC boats so they would'n sink. It sounds like you dont even own a fuel magnet,buy one and get back to me.

Ok, I would not have bothered to comment if I didn't have experience of them, as I do like to make sure I'm not talking crap.

Not only do I have one, I have two, so a spare one to do this very scientific experiment, you could try it too - just follow these simple steps.

I took a new OMI fuel magnet with new sponge, a champagne glass (though any glass will do), and some water.

Drop OMI fuel magnet complete with foam in to glass of water and observe magnet sink.

If you can't be arsed then here is a photo of the result.

Good test Thomas!! Very good! MR10X must be spitting feathers!!

MR10X: You remind me of Jeremy Clarkson from the UK's Top Gear!!....It's always i'm right and your wrong approach to things!!

Anybody with a brain and a fuel magnet of course knows that it is light when it's dry but becomes heavy when loaded with fuel and stays that way as long as there is a sniff of fuel available it will soak it up and keep the magnet full of fuel.

I have done this test, and i must admit that when the tank is full the fuel magnet does have a slight buoyancy to it but it still has a tendancy to sag with the fuel magnet on the end.

A new fuel magnet will only sag very slightly but once it has had a sniff of fuel it will sag, try this: fill the tank and then drain it and watch the magnet follow the fuel level even when you think the tank is dry the magnet will still find fuel and it soaks it up like lightening!!

Thanks
Christian

LOL, I used water to avoid grief from the Mrs.

But for your benefit I repeated the experiment using Magnum 30%, as you can see the results were identical.

Please don't make some lame joke about glass fuel tanks.

In future, so save further embarrassment, you may wish to get you facts straight before being condescending.
