    1qwk:

    Thanks for the info. I checked the sight, looks like castor went up to $30 per gallon, still a bit cheaper than most other sources. I'll give them a try.

    Agree with both of you. I run fuel I modify from a store bought base. My basic mix is 7% nitro and 20% all castor fuel. I run old Enya engines with lapped pistons and sleeves. They run very well...

    I don't care for gas or electric, I fly glow exclusively. I've taken a few steps to prepare for the decline of glow.

    I have changed over to using only Enya engines, and only a limited range of...

    I have seen videos of idiots mounting rifles and pistols on quads and shooting them while in flight. How do we know that the quad flying overhead is not armed? Troubling indeed.

    Drone collides with full scale plane video

    Anyone seen this one. Looks legit. Can't make out the airline logo on the winglet, maybe foreign.

    As in the hobby at large, there are too many choices. Unfortunately this also means that we often have less in common with each other.
