The guy who gave me the heli said a header tank would fix that by keeping the fuel level, that the carb sees, the same.
I thought that was the idea?

I believe my tank clunk will start to suck air at the bottom of the tank. It leans out over 15min. flights So I hope to stop the leaning out problem get the fuel to the carb easier for starting at freezing temps I have to prime it (turn it over without the igniter)And hold finger over muffler to pressurize the tank to get it to draw fuel to the motor. And add a few OZ of fuel so I can fly to the bottom of the tank Cause I can check my flight time pretty easily looking tail in at the tank.

Not used to this winter flying oil is thicker than nitro!

Just got to warm the jugs with a heater, advance the timing, give her 2 slow kicks, then wrap the throttle twice and give her one hard fast kick and she'll turn over every time.

I thought the header tank was to make sure you were always sucking fuel. I used to see the guys that were doing "flip flops" (what they called 3D early on) using them cause they would flip and roll so much and go inverted that they did not trust their tank.

I threw one on my little Xcell .60 back then just to get a little bit more fuel and it was easier to see but quickly noticed how my engine did not cough on me when I'd do a big loop with a piro at the top (avalanche).

Propane tourch ,to the heads does it

And Melnic you are right,but even the header tank runs out sooner or later and the motor will lean out then

I'm not arguing the leaning out part. I agree w/ that. Gravity rules man.
Only that header tanks were used or possibly invented so that you were not sucking any air till you were running on fumes.

Man! I'm going have to be careful with the pics I post. You guys with the eagle eyes can spot anything in the background. I guess that makes you a better heli pilot

Ordered a LogicTech 2100 Last week and came in today. I'll have some fun setting it up tonight on the e550 (which has yet to fly).
I have 3 helis now that are awaiting test flights. Not only is my time short but the weather is either cold or windy.
