I guess it depends on whether you'd rather have a good running engine or a cleaner heli

Chances are the other fuel you tried might have had a bit higher oil content than the cool power too. Maybe some of your overheating comes from using that #8 plug which is their second hottest. Going from 15 to 30% nitro is a big jump with the same plug, try a cooler one. Hopefully you're retuning everytime you change fuels, even if it's just a different oil content.
