Thanks for clearing that up, my clunk is free to move around and doesn't bind to the back of the tank so hopefully it should be ok... That fuel magnet would be pretty cool to get anyways don't you think? Do you use fuel magnets on yours or just a normal clunk?

Mine? Just a clunk.

Fuel magnets the foam can break down and clog the filter. If I felt the need to go that route I'd use the OS Bubbless clunk.

Yes, the newer foam holds up better, yes if you keep them submerged they last longer. I just don't prefer to use them.

on the 50, it is very easy to go lean on it so stay a few clicks rich. On this machine two clicks can be the difference between a blown piston and a great running engine.

Remember the closer to "perfect power" you get, the more tuning per weather change you'll have to do.

1.5 turns out and don't touch the brass screw. When you start leaning it out, only go 2 clicks at a time and be very carful around 1.25 turns out. This is where you can get into trouble very fast.

You may want to invest in a temp guage. This will help identify when the engein is about to go lean...you'll get too high of temps.

Common sense isn't so common. Yes, there are stupid questions

Header tanks are a personal preference, period.

You can pull off all the moves without one, but....

you can not run a header tank dry without one.

Either way, the engine quits the all the same, inverted or not.

I run a header tank because... as long as there is fuel in the header tank which is easy to see, I'm good.

how long a flight are you guys getting from a full tank? and yes I'll be getting a temp gun here pretty soon, i should already have it but i've been slacking and not going to the HS to get one...

by the way and in all honesty i don't know why everyone is going back to electrics, yes you get raw power out of an electric and other factors but nothing beats the sounds and it might be weird but the smell of the smoke is so cool i like electrics myself so i think ill get my 600E up and flying and whenever i don't want to start the nitro ill just fly the E...
