Default RE: saito 100 best fuel

I generally run 5% nitromethane glow fuel with a blend of synthetic and castor oil. Cool Power Omega comes to mind.
Most all my engines run just fine off of the 5% nitro glow fuel. with the exception of a few odd ball engines, they all run fine off of 5%.
But here in the USA many modellers are spoiled and want to use 10% to 15% nitro glow fuel.
Your choice.

I run 30 percent cool power heli in mine, mainly because I'm too lazy to carry different fuel for different platforms, toting a gas can and a nitro bottle is enough.

The helicopter fuel has plenty of oil and the engines run like a top on it. If you want a slightly cheaper alternative, 20 percent nitro CP Heli has the same oil package and its a bit cheaper.

Around here, there is little reason to not run 15% fuel. It is cheap and plentiful. It is the most common percentage in the lhs.
