    use 20% fuel, i like the os a3 glow plug, after run for the end of the day, air filter oil and an igniter and your good to go. you can do a spit test to see the temp, you wipe some spit on your finger then wipe the top of the cooling head, if it sizzles and is gone right away, your too hot, if it evaporates in like 3-5 seconds you at the right temp range, if it sits there and takes more than 5 seconds to evaporate your too cool.

    LOL, spit test always works, and do you mean 20& fuel? should i put after run oil in before i get it going are just after?

    yes 20%, i just edited it, you can use alkaline aa's just make sure you wrap the battery case with electric tape a couple of time in the center to hold the batteries in, they can pop out and you will loose control and

    For a noob I would recommend a temp gun also. Break in is crucial.
    The one with the most toys wins. I think I may have a good chance of winning.
