    We had a similar problem with gasoline on grass - except it was only grass. We put up signs and tried to encourage everyone to use a catch pan. Some did, some would not and continued to kill grass.

    One of the best 3D planes I have flown is my OMP 47" profile Edge. It is a great 3D trainer. $170. I put an OS 50SX-H helicopter engine (APC 12x4 prop) in it and standard servos.

    Good Luck
