I went to that site, but I couldn't find anything about bladder tanks. I can find what I need to learn about them though.

I'll start looking at tank options before I get too far along. This plane looks like it'll be a handful. The kit says use 26' lines, but that sounds too wild. Surely 30' would work. I fly 35' lines on my other planes.

Ammonia is not needed to soak balsa. A whisp of Simple Green will help wet the balsa, but is not necessary.
I'll check Brodak for tanks and fuel accessories.
So you think just plain water and clamp it straight until it dries?

Yeah, I like to fly more than anything. I like building too, but flying is the reason I do it. I'll do some reading around those forums.

Thanks everyone.
