Fox Speed Tank Size
« on: July 13, 2020, 04:36:45 PM »
Well searched for 1/2 hour, couldn't find it. How big do you need the tank to be in a Fox speed plane to get 14 laps under full power? Also, don't want it to run forever, maybe 20-25 laps?


Thanks,

An ounce is safe.

Is that for 10% or 5% nitro? I've seen rules that say 5% but I thought they usually run on 10% nitro with 20% oil?

An ounce is good for 10%. My plane is about .8 oz. Last fall we had a 'good air' day and I had to go 5% to make 14. We use our every day fuel, Powermaster 10/22.  If you go west 5% is mandatory.

Is that sitting inverted? What tank did you decide on?
