For RC applications.......

The smallest sullivan is 1oz or so i've seen. I know Perfect has littleuns but, I remember reading they were no good for RC. So, does anyone else make them?

Thanks Rusty,

I just went through all 23 pages (205) tanks and the only ones smaller then 1oz are the perfect style tanks and they are all uniflow, which from what I hear are no good for RC.

Surely someone makes a small clunk tank! I can't be the only guy who want's to fly .010 and .020 RC.

I guess I have to make my own as others have done.

Good show John!

Now, I wonder if my wife will get upset with me emptying all the eye drop bottles around the house........

Just the two lines? One fill and one outlet?

Yeah this one will go on the outside of the plane Ron so I figured the fewer pipes the less messing around.
Fill is just pop out the valve, squirt the squirt in, replace valve and Roberts your Mothers Brother....
Well we will see in the Morning....

Most of us use other things as tanks.
I use those little soya sauce bottles that come with lunch packs of sushi.

You must buy the high grade sushi, the stuff I buy only has the soy sauce packets.

I use the empty bottles we use to pack the 25ml cyano in for larger small tanks, and the 15ml bottles we use for threadlock for anything smaller,

For very light weight i use empty aluminium glue tubes or occasionally i use empty syringes and pipettes , All seem to work fine

I just picked up a couple perfect tanks at a local swap 3/4 oz and a 1/3 oz. Lools like the seams are soldered so I am going to heat a side up and see if I can pull it off and put a clunk inside them.

They only cost me 50 cents a piece so if I completely ruin them then no loss.

Nitro, does that TT valve have free enough flow for venting? Mine seems to have a bit of resistance when I blow through it. But I use it for filling my pressure bladder, so it's fine for that. Just wondering.
