Question about fuel tank and klunk

Postby heliedje » Thu Aug 14, 2008 2:27 pm

Hi, I just finished my Bergen Intrepid EB Gasser and noticed that, when I tilt the heli backwards (with the tank half filled), the fuel runs out of the overflow vent (mounted below the side frame, just like the manual says.

Second I noticed that the klunk, pointing up when I tilt the heli backwards, is no longer in the fuel, but rises about one inch above the fuel level at that position.

Is this all OK? or am I doing something wrong here?
I planned to make the maiden tomorrow or saturday, and don't want the engine to give up one me when I make a looping or a flip (nose up orientation).
