I ran my new trex 600n out of fuel the other day and there was still a little fuel left in the tank. It went lean and just quit, but I auto'd it down ok. I would like to put a header tank on it to prevent this from happening again. Does anyone know what is the best tank and what is the best way to install it? To the best of my knowledge there is not one made for this heli, so I guess it would be a retro fit. Any help would be appreciated. Also, if you know where to get one, that would be a big help. Thanks

Just make sure the header outlet is vertically aligned with the carb input.

There are a few options for header tanks out there. This link is just one....

I have a few picture in my gallery for mounting ideas. You'll just need to come up with some kind of stand-off to space it away from the heli's frame..

Hell... I can fix that.
Uh oh..
Nope.
It's ***ked!!!

I remove the right rear bolt on the lower bearing block using a Thunder Tiger header tank with a longer bolt and a coupler from a raptor 50 tail control rod for a spacer , works great.

I stole it ,flew it and gave it back ;)

Thunder Tiger, Century, Hayes, and Quick make one. Most cost $10-15. I used a Sullivan 2 oz tank when header tanks were on the rise and no one made a "header tank" yet. The shape isn't important. I've use cylindrical, rectangular, and slant. All good. I prefered the flex type and just nylon tied it to the frame. Like Yug says, keep the clunk line where it exits the tank level with the carb needle valve fitting.

I like to keep fuel outlet close to level and in line as possible with carb . With this setup it is in line.

I stole it ,flew it and gave it back ;)

Here is one I had at one time. It is an RJX brand I believe. 2oz. with metal mounting bracket for about 13.00 or so. Can't remember exactly where I purchased it.

I just used 3m grey back double sided tape, and stuck it onto the main tank. It works fine, and has lasted for at least five months. I do not think it will ever fall off.

I really like the Quick UK header tanks. They are very nice. I am not sure if anyone makes a standoff for it. I have seen some guys use a transmitter gimble. I myself used a pinion from my 500 and it worked perfectly plus added some extra bling

It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!

just my opinion, but jeff and Bulldogs, your set up, although you have gotten the first stand off right, you have neglected to add the second stand off that makes your fuel tube exit at the same height as it does from the main tank fuel tube exit. I have used an old servo arm that you get in the servo arm packages you can buy. you put the end that you attach to the servo on the screw going into the bearing hole, and the tank attaches to the other end (lined up with exit holes on main tank).
the reason you need to line holes up, is so that when your inverted your engine wont run lean from being below the main tank exit hole. If it is, when you go inverted, your engine will run lean.
If you dont add something to make the side tank lower to match the main tank, you will notice the difference.

Not true at all. Depends on if they are running a pressurized fuel system.

(Good info brcg123) Ive had no fuel problems while inverted and I spend quite some time upside down.

I used a Raptor metal frame brace for a stand off.

Hi
I'm much happier now i have installed a header tank,

If you buy the Quick Uk standoffs here

http://www.quickuk.eu/cat/engines__...uel_supply.html

Remove your right rear bolt on the lower bearing block and you will find that the bolts that come with the standoff set are the same size as your bearing block bolt and fits straight on.

Also a bit of double sided or gyro tape on the back stops it from twisting.

I also put a OS Bubbless clunk in the main tank with normal thick fuel line and it sucks it up great.

Quick UK Header Tank & Standoff Mount
Header Tank

I used Quick UK's header tank and their mounting system. Quality setup, and works great, also has a certain bling value. Comes in various colors.

Quick UK's info on the header tank and mount can be found here:
http://www.quickuk.eu/cat/engines__...uel_supply.html

Check with your LHS for price and availability. I went to Hobby Hut for the tank and ordered the mount direct from Quick UK. Good exchange rate for US buyers and I had the mount in one week.
