Better yet, get a Fuel Magnet and drop the header tank all together! Your engines will run smoother as well.

its a sponge that sucks up fuel so if the clunk is ever out of the fuel it still has a little left to avoid air in th eline till the clunk gets back in the fuel looks like this

and heres a link

its pretty nice but i throw my heli around alot so i dont know if it would work as good for hard 3d as a header anyone have experience with these in hard 3D flight?

Both of my helis have fuel magnets and no head. Is that hard enough?

lol this is my first nitro but that doesn't mean i don't know how to fly a heli i had electrics since October can do inverted backwards 8's, tic tocs in ANY direction ie. elev,aileron, tic tocs while spinning on axis, piroflips,low level inverted nose in (tail in still tricks me), ANY upright orientation, loops ,funnels ,flips in place,rolls in place,blade stall autos inverted and upright,and tons more just because im new doesn't mean i don't learn fast i picked up all that in 6 months of flying and did my first piroflip 3 months in now i am working on refining them all and keeping them perfectly level with same altitude entry's and exits and low level tricks sure i crashed ALOT but now i rarely crash don't say i don't know what im doing just because i have never used a fuel magnet an engine is the only thing i am learning now i know how to fully set up and tear down a heli set the linkages adjust pitch and change ratios to suit flying style ,etc ,etc... i do know how to 3D a helicopter
