Default Rich's Brew fuel

Is Rich's brew still selling fuel? I sent them an email and no reply. I love their stuff and need some for an upcoming contest.

Yes, Randy is still making Ritch's Brew.  He might be up at Joe Nall this week, but you could call the hobby shop here in Houston and see about getting an order placed through them:
Randys Hobbies

Well, for anyone who sees this, they do not ship. I was directed to horizon that offers a very limited selection. Not suitable for CL flying. I was able to secure some locally. I have to say that glow fuel is becoming a real PIA to obtain. Good thing I mostly only fly gas now. The fuel I secured today will last me a very long time though, so all is right with the world for a little while.

I've made multiple attempts to place an order. Rich has the poorest customer service that I experienced in 20 plus years of modeling. I've called twice given my CC information and was informed that it would be shipped. A month later and still no fuel. They might have the best fuel in the world, however, if you can't get it when you need it it's not SQUAT!

I saw the booth at Toledo, but Don't think I need any this year. $14 a gallon for 10% with 50/50 oil. We have a 30% upcharge on the Canadian dollar this year too, so it is close to $20 a gallon now in our money. I liked it better when the dollar was even last year and it was $13 a gallon. I think many places have crazy shipping charges for "chemicals" . A month of waiting for fuel is bad in the flying season!
