What is the best location for a Smoke Tank on an Edge540 with MX Wing?

Not too many options....

I had built a custom 4 gal tank behind the seat and the pump is in front of the header tank. All with quick disconnect pipes for fast competition/airshow configurations. Watch out for your CG because it can be moved way back.

If you look closely the mock up is in the first picture in the left side, opposite to the battery. The other two are the welded plates where it is screwed with 3 screws.

I got permission from Jorge to post this. Let me see if I can find him to post more about his airplane...
