Damn! Woah, that's a really good deal! Crazy Eyes


You know what they say "if the price is too good to be true, it probably is".

Yeow! That’s som spensive plastic!!  If you shop a little bit, you can find you can buy a complete engine with tank, and save some money.

A gent over in England posted this on Facebook.  I asked him if he has a file that he’d be willing to share.  We’ll see if he responds.  In case you were looking for a Skycopter fuel tank 41dc1210

Jason, That would be great if you could make them. I could use several for the ones I have.

I'm sure you've seen his video of the tank supplying fuel as the engine is running when being hand held and filmed. Over on Facebook.

These were printed with the fuel nipples on top. The shape is perfectly round. The bottom first layer of the tank where the support is sagged a bit and had to be trimmed off.

In case you were looking for a Skycopter fuel tank 9172e610

These were printed with the fuel nipples to the side. Support underneath.

In case you were looking for a Skycopter fuel tank E309c210

In case you were looking for a Skycopter fuel tank B3fcfe10

So the question better with nipples up or to the side?  Eyebrows

Not that I need one, but is it not the same tank laying on its side? I do not have one, but I cannot honestly see a difference between them. If there is a difference, was there two different versions of the model?

I like the nipples on top. It looks like the tank was printed on its side. The outlets are rounder and a bit longer for fuel hose to attach to.

The tanks are the same configuration from what I understand. Just that one is printed on its side and one printed on its end. They would still mount in the aircraft the same way.
