i had a dle 20 in a sig rascall 110 with a 16oz tank and could fly 45 to 50 minutes so a 6oz tank with a 15cc engine should give a nice flight time the grizzz

I have a 12oz tank on an OS33gt. With a 15 minute flight on a pilot extra with mixed flying I am landing with about 4oz of fuel.

OK; I did more studying on the work bench yesterday. I installed a platform in the top of the fuselage that sticks out inside the front compartment about an inch. It'll be above the 8 oz fuel tank back in it's original position and I can leave the servo up front as is. AND, I can use the original battery tray, that I configured so the battery can be positioned to use as a balance weight as needed.

Thank you all again for the replies, I enjoyed reading and learning from every one of them,

OH, BTW: Grizzz, flying the Rascal 45 to 50 minutes; did you use an easy chair during that flight? LOL I would have...
