    The only way that you're going to get a decent volume of smoke is to use smoke cartridges. Smoke

    I have smoked 2 motors in a row, but it doesn't last long
    Fly it till the wings come off.

    Just leave off the heat shrink tubing!!!. You'll get lots of smoke- only once per fight though. Sorry- just couldn't resist teasing. Actually, we had a dunderhead in the group that did just that. Neatest trail of white smoke you ever saw for 100 feet!!!!

    Smoke requires heat. There was an electric smoke generator advertized  in some of the R/C mags. It was expensive, and used a fair amount of electric energy. No idea what was used as fluid for the smoke.
