Default Anyone know a good place to put a header tank on the N5?

Trying to figure out a good spot to put a header tank and which header tank to use. That control rod on the right side of the heli seems like it would get in the way some. The reason I am wanting one is to keep the pressure consistant throughout the flight so my engine doesn't run leaner at the end of the flight,, which is happening now! I am running an OS55.

Get an OMI fuel magnet. Works very well.

Already have one on there, but it will still tend to run leaner at the end, due to pressure not being as great. A header tank will fix that!

I've stuck mine to the main tank with double sided tape, and sealed all round the joint with silicone.
Works well
