I've gone the supplied parts but have added a header tank. I didn't like the look of the standard setup, the tank is such a strange shape I think you would have to use a fuel mag or header tank, I don't see the need for both though. It's like the synergy tank, I added a header tank on that too.

I'm running the fuel magnet and no problems. I used a long fuel line to put the magnet toward the rear of the tank so when the tank is pointed down the magnet almost goes to the end. Softer fuel line would be better but I didn't have any. I use the YS50 which uses engine crank pressure.

Lovin' my header tank. It's hard to see how much fuel is in the main tank, easy in the header.I was Spektrum when Spektrum wasn't cool

I'm running crack case pressure with fuel magnet. Have no problems, don't need a header tank with the YS 50st and better power then my OS 50Hyper

Using a fuel magnet in mine with the OS 50 Hyper. I never run it completely empty so the magnet is always exposed to the fuel and after the flight is complete, I fuel it back up to push the exhaust gasses out of the tank. That's the only issue with using exhaust pressurized system. Just follow the above for those with the OS 50 engine and keep an eye on the magnet. Too much exposure to the hot exhaust gasses can break it down.

I can't for the life of me, understand why people are retro-fitting header tank's to 600N.

Totally unnecessary. IMO.

i totally agree what a waste...

first time they plant there heli on the header tank side and break the frames there, they will take it off....
