Default Graupner 12v Smoke Unit

Hi guys. This forum was recommended to me for answering a question I have.

I'm primarily an RC Tank guy, and im building a smoke unit for it. I've used a 6v smoke unit, but not been getting a lot of smoke. I was wondering if I use a 12v Graupner smoker on 7.2v, will I get a decent amount of smoke? Or is there any way to boost the smoke in the 6v version?

Cheers,
Rik

I saw a post someplace a guy built a metal stack and burned plastic in it it sounds like a bad idea but the video of it looked great.

Guys - as a [boat, airplane, car,] and steam train enthusiast, I can state with some confidence that no one has come up with a good way to make a smoke unit produce black smoke.  You can buy smoke fluid that will make your basement or - in my case - yard smell like a huge BBQ, but none with color.  Cheers, Jon Linde
