Yeah.. I put plywood behind the install location for mine because I doubt screwing the housing into balsa will be very secure.

A Plywood ring works great if all you have are balsa sides, I could put directions in with the fuelers but I figured most would know how and not read them anyway.

You'd be surprised Mark. I've seen some pretty 'unusual' installations of components in this age of the ARF. Things that someone who built the airplane themselves would have NEVER done, but since people don't build anymore, they just don't know.

Does anyone worry about the fill line coiling up when tightening the "screw"?

Even better, watch the video in the first post. I demonstrate the swivel action that makes this soooo cool.

He has engineered a swivel that keeps the fuel line from twisting.

Looks like a nice dot, but I hate fuel dots. I use B&B fuse fittings, one for fueling and one for the vent exit.

That's because you haven't used one of these.

I have heard stories that it is used like currency in some countries, that North Korea agreed to stop testing nuclear weapons because the US agreed to send them some. I even heard that people are putting them on electric airplanes...

I have been using the JEModel Fuel Dot on all our gasser and have never had a problem coming loose, etc. Very easy to pull out with the thumb tack like fitting. The price varies on these. Aeroworks sells them for $17.99, but they are available elsewhere for less. Here is a picture:

It's just everyone trying to show that theirs is kewler... it's OK, there are a lot of innovations out there. I like the magnet idea, but still stand up to the unique swivel of the McFueler. All these others in here just further point that out. Other fuel dots will work, but in the new world of "too many options" I was really surprised and impressed with them and will use them on all my planes that require fuel. I can say this for certain... 3 trips to the field and some backyard tuning and I've yet to brake a nail fueling/defueling my plane. The 3 others I've had have all taken one out! Not that you guys care about that... LOL
