No more "It won't work" or "It can't be done"
Hello guys.

Great lesson learned from a friend of mine (who by the way is one of the greatest IMAC pilots in the world).

No more "it can't be done". Yes it can. Yes it will work. Yes we can do it.

So, Jet Ranger 206 beeing adapted to fit the t-rex 700 nitro with wren turbine. And a custom DIY kevlar tank he did (with my moral support haha). Total 1050 mL.

I'll keep you informed when the tests starts.

Cheers to all helimates!

This post is more than 6 months old, but I have a stupid question:
Why would it have not worked?

Is Kevlar hard to work with?
Is there a question of resin compatibility with the kerosene?
Is there a lot of pressure in the tank?

Just asking.

I mean, I used to do vacuum bagged CF / Spektra laminated glider wings and fuselages. Its tough to get the molds right.

It looks good and all.

A lot of guys from the local club here called us crazy. We simply wanted to do it.

I also don't see a reason why it wouldnt work

Kevlar is a pain in the a* to work btw!
