I have an idea

It is to mount a small 2 stroke engine on a glider using a condom or funny clown balloon inside it to hold the fuel

You guys are the guys to ask

which bladder system will work inside a glider?

and not eat away at the balloon, I had horrible problems with smoke system eating away at stuff

is there a valve that will only let in a certain pressure when the tank "balloon" is fully tanked?

how would I set up a glider for fuel and be able to glide around without problems?

my idea is to put a folding prop. and spinner on a glow engine, with a glider fuse that has a condom or something to hold fuel?

tones of power to get elevation with glow and them glide around nice and light

any suggestions would be cool

ok I'm not counting the spinning on wet grass in PA... but still didn't have to be towed out of the mud.
went back with the same tires..
1900$ for new tires! Dang, I hope they at least gave ya a "reach around" after that Daniel.

Dave many many moons the bladder tank was used. It was used alot on the 049 systems.
It was nothing more than a ballon that had some fuel in it.
The biggest issue is not to put an exceess amount of fuel in it as to create pressure.
Problem being then was the varying pressure changing the fuel mixture. BUT you may try a cline regulator.
I say experiment Dave.
After all just look at that guy on the news that made a set of wings and did the 1st human flight. Good luck david

For a mobile repeater
a gasoline engine with a mag is by far the most fuel efficient. An engine like a G26 could run 8 hr on a gallon of gas in a Telemaster. Depending on the throttle of course.
Done right it could also generate the power need as well but at the expense of fuel consumption..
A mirco controller could be used to control the whole system.
Alot of those controllers and the necessary knowledge can all be found at the DIY fourms.
Those guys are great over there.

Billd Nice frogman suit glad to hear you love your job thats awesome and rarely heard of these days I'm certainly not one of the job lovers lol

Wayne maybe you should pay that family a visit as their 3rd cousins Tom's removed twice uncle Wayne and set things straight lol

Kerwin Congrats on the maiden good job sir and you should just stick with the one shoe and sock thing once your healed and then if one foot gets cold you could just switch the sock and shoe oh,, well,,, maybe the left shoe might be uncomfortable on the right foot.....Hey!! Join Waynes neighbors then you won't have any laundry to do ever again

David what Plane are you trying to lift? I was going to suggest one of the .049's as the fuel tank mounts right to the engine thats what I was going to put on my Carl Goldberg Gentle lady but went with the electric as I haven't tested my Old .049 yet but it has plenty of power to get it up there and runs about 10 - 15 minutes depending on the fuel tank size.
I also added the rear braces as I wanted the extra stability on the engine mount.

Those guys have daily, weekend, etc. rates. Clothing is not optional, it isn't allowed. They have rooms for overnight or you can camp.

I can't believe they allow children. That is just wrong.

No, it was Weatherunderground. They have a weather station reporting.
