It was not a big deal pushing in the fuel nipple and grommet... At first I thought it would be a problem but as you see in the video it went right in.

What about removing it if you have to remove the tank? I would think you'd damage it..?

Well thats true... I pulled mine out by the nipple and it took some force... I was worried I would break it but it was fine. So yea it will be tough to get out but doable.

Might be easier to remove the rubber bumper ring on one side of the frame and then you might be able to get the tank out without removing the nipple... I haven't tried that idea but it might work.

Well, that's what these pre-production kits are for, right? Align should see this and do a re-design as "nelson j" suggested. Move the nipple to the outside of the frame, re-shape the tank similar to the far superior Aurora . Kidding!

But seriously, that's what these kits are suppose to be for.....

Ya know, all the original prototype pictures show the fuel nipple on the outside of the frame.

Are you sure the manual isn't bass ackwards...

Missed that, sorry toaster.

Center is definitely best for fuel feed (obviously). Tank maintenance sucks though.

I wonder how Avant's design works out? Any feedback on fuel starvation on the Aurora?

Great build vids, you are the Heli Guru worldwide, Thank's Bob, your build videos made it a very easy decision for me on what to get, well, I started on rc Heli about a year ago, I bourght and build my first Trex 450 and later also jumped to the Trex 600.


Bob, I have a question regarding the Trex 700 boom, I would like to know the Id and Od, lenght, maby weight too.
I interrested to know if the Trex 700 Boom would be the new possible donor for my streched AP Trex 600 Ep project heli, I currently running a homemade alu boom Od 21.55 mm, Id 20,40 mm, lenght 725 mm.

Please Bob, if you have the time to messure the boom in the building proces, I'll appreciate it allot.



Keep up the good work Bob,,,great Respect, allot of us helifreaks and freaks appreciate your work allot,,, worldwide

Regard's
Henrik
