I have a Baby Flight Streak that I built 20 years ago, but never flew.  Never put an engine in it.  Getting a Tee Dee .049, but haven't flown UC since high school, and don't know what size tank for 5-10 minutes.  Ideas?

I last built a TeeDee .049 powered combat type (similar to Flight Streak, but with stabilator), back in the late 70's and used a small "Perfect"  brand 1.0z. wedge. I still have the tank. I never timed the flights but were plenty long enough for this "older" (near 30, then)), after a near 10 year layoff from active CL flying. BTW when I was active, I found that 3 oz RC "clunk tank" (an adapted plastic bottle) worked well as a full stunt tank.  I see small poly bottles, today . and think could be adapted similarly. A 1oz motel shampoo bottle would be perfect  for !/2A stunt tank.
