  1. QUOTE="Rjfetz1, post: 219328, member: 12478"]I have decided to go gas. The guys at my field convinced me last weekend. DA35 it will be. I love the sound of gas engine running!:)[/QUOTE]

    I think this is a very good decision and like me I'm quite sure that you will never regret going gas. Best of luck with your first larger model.

    There us a lot of good friendly help to be found here on GSN.
    A few hints I like to give people new to gas for more trouble free operation are; Loctite everything but the prop bolts and the hatch bolts. Use genuine Tygon fuel tubing on every line except use Viton tubing in the tank. Use barbs on brass lines and either zip ties or something on all lines. Gas will loosen lines and they will slide off without barbs. I highly recommend RedLine oil, DA recommends it for a reason, it works.

    If you have any questions just ask.

    Every word absolutely true. Especially the Redline Oil. Multiple test and photos and years of scores of engine users have proven this without a single negative result. Crazy too is the barbs on the brass lines and zip ties. I used to use these methods religiously. That is until I ran across a thread a few years back where someone had suggested using a "collar" of fuel tubing over the end of your fuel tubing. Tanner also mentioned this. Dang, it works like a champ. When I removed the DLE 61 from the Baby Yak-ster, I nearly had to "cut" the fuel line from the carb inlet. It was flat glued into position. Not even a chance of a leak there. LOL. All my "Dubs" are done this way too.

    I have to plumb a tank for a friend soon, and I've been wanting to try that. When I used to plumb the air system in turbine jets I used collars like that with great success.
