Recommended is a 450-550cc fuel tank that allows approximately
10 to 12 minute flights.
Locate the fuel tank so that the top of the tank is 5-10mm (1/4-3/8")
above the level of the needle valve.
A 1/16" wire (not included) can be used to extend the needle valve by
inserting the wire into the pre-drilled hole on the end of needle

To use a Tru Turn spinner and an APC propeller, modeler will need
the Tru Turn jam nut set TT-0378-A (not carried at this time).
