Help with nitro setup

I have this darn Miniature aircraft Concept 30 that I can’t unload for any price so I might as well fly it.

I’ve never setup a heli before. I’ve flown quite a few but they were BNF/RTF blade400’s and such so I can fly I just don’t know about setup.

Can anyone help me setup the radio and both fuel tanks?

That would be cool.

You wouldn’t have a starter adapter, would you? If not I’ll get one ordered.

Let me look through my junk box. Miniature always used a goofy start shaft that worked on that bare 6mm shaft.

I think it’s a regular hex adapter. It’s an os .37 engine. I’ll get it down and get a pic.

No luck on start adapter and I gave away all my old MA flex shafts 3 or 4 years ago.

Just get a long Allen wrench and chuck it up in the drill.

When you said start adapter, did you mean the start shaft for your electric starter or the hex socket that goes on the end of the clutch/engine shaft? I definitely have an extra start shaft that plugs into your rubber spinner cone.

Yes, pretty much, although the video didn’t give a good diagram of the plumbing.

Carb to clunk line of header tank. Vent of header tank to clunk line of main tank. Vent of main tank to muffler pressure.

Simple. Just basically throwing the header tank between the main and engine.
