Hello folks, first post here. I am getting back into 1/2a and I was wondering if its possible to extend the flight time of a Golden Bee with an external fuel tank? I'm planning on using it on a small rc plane. Thanks and hope to learn more about 1/2a stuff and contribute to the group.

The free flight guys would drill a 1/4" hole in the side of the tank and attach the tubing to the nipple in the backplate through the hole. Normally a Babe Bee was used for this because it was shorter and may vibrate less. The Golden bee would work but is kind of worth slightly more as it is.

Welcome Smile You could get one of these:

https://coxengines.ca/back-end/cox--049-backplate-assembly.html

This will bolt straight on your Golden Bee. It will replace your tank assembly, and allows the use of any external fuel tank. The ”snorkel” can be removed, allowing a little bit easier mounting of the engine.

There is an R/C version of that backplate too, should you want to add throttle control.
