Default STOP with the oil ratio threads, please.

Guys, do a search. It is REAL easy and it works great.
This topic has been KILLED every week for YEARS.

Default RE: STOP with the oil ratio threads, please.

So I was wondering...

I have a DA 50 that is brand new. What oil ratio should I use for break in? Then, what should I use after break in. Then, what should I use when it has about 1000 hours on it?

Sure, the same threads get old but let's face it, RCU's search bar sucks. So if you don't want to read yet another thread about oil ratios, do what I do: go to the next thread. Works every time.

1:32 break-in
1:40 bad oil
1:50 good synth.

There is NO BEST OIL !!
these small engines are sold everywhere so they will work perfect with the most popular and reputable oil of your city, country.
It would be stupid if everybody should import american oils as the AMSOIL...expensive and unnecessary

Do not be worried, use synthetic oil and fly or die 4ever..

Default RE: STOP with the oil ratio threads, please.

I tried to find a thread that actually answers the question definitively. Couldn't find one though
Does anyone have the answer - the definitive answer on which oil and how much to use?

Hey Whistlingdeath and Eagleburger - I have the same issues as you guys - I see new threads asking the questions and thingk "Oh no - not another one" - but i look anyway. Luckily I can't eat chocolate

Can we have a thread on how to make the search work well please? I would love to see it. I can't find that "fuzzy" option on it anywhere I look.

Oh well - having said that - I am going out to fly my planes now with good synthetic oil mixed at bad oil ratios - it works for me.

Can't tellyou which gas I use - it might start an argument

You must be an engineer.

They are the only ones that can't read the label on a bottle or look at the graduation lines on a mixing cup. I work with a bunch that used to mix gas and oil by weight. After a couple years pulling my hair our everytime they hauled out the scale the problem resolved itself when the battey died and nobody had a spare. They were a long ways from anywhere and all they had left was reading the lable on the oil bottle and estimating the amount of gas in the can right after putting 5 gallons in it at the gas station......

But hey, if that what fluffs your skirt, feel free. I sure as heck won't try and stop anyone from going that route.

As for RCU having a crappy search engine...I agree. However. RCU IS NOT the Universe where RC is concerned. There just happen to be a couple of other forums devoted to giant scale. Where gas engines are the norm rather than something new. In one of them there is enough experience accumulated with the modeling population where the need for an oil and ratio question isn't needed. I spend a lot of time there these days.

Instead of "RC" universe it should be "ARF" universe.

Wouldn't it be easier to found out oil ratios and breakin procedures by reading the Freakin' manaul?? If you dont have the book then do a search!!!

Most people don't have several thousand $ invested in their chainsaw or weed eater.

ROTFLMAO Actually I find the search engine works fairly well - use simple terms that are unique and specify subject only. I usually use the search this forum only at the bottom of the page. For oil ratios try "oil ratio" in quotes. Be prepared it really has been beaten to death.

Did Newton contemplate "RC" universe?
Did Newton have a wife with a rather LARGE set of honkers when he came up the the "gravity theory"?
Is Newton responsible for me crashing all the time?
I think Iwill name my next plane "Newton's Nuggets" because like that Apple Tree, it's sure as heck going to "go up and come down (a lot of times, not exactly like I'd prefer)"

Default RE: STOP with the oil ratio threads, please.

This is creditied to AUSSIESTEVE from yet another oil ratio thread here on RCU:


ORIGINAL: aussiesteve

I couldn't vote - there is no ''none of the above''

Scientific tests show that the oil I use should be run at EXACTLY 44.5:1 w/v

I need to also use a mixture of 2 oils at 36:48 v/v ratio then add 1.85% Castor to that by weight.

Then I mix that with a combination of 36:24:36 Coleman gas, Premium Gas and Avgas 100LL

After that - I turn around on the spot 3 times, try to stand on one leg (left leg for odd numbered days and right leg for even numbered days), and mix it with a flame torch

Then I go and fly electrics - but not LiPo powered - that is a different thread

Regards, Richard
