P-60 uses std 5% oil, so 5 gallons to a qtr is near enough.
The P-60 is best with a 2s Li-Po (but if its a gas start you could use a 6N NiCad/NiMH.
Radio wise it will depend on switch/regulator etc

previous figure was before Coffee ;-) thx

Dave,

I think you meant 5 gal fuel to one quart of oil.

Find a local jet guy for help. You will need him anyway for the waiver.

http://www.jetcat.com.cn/manualp60p200eng.pdf Read the manual and get linked up with an experienced person. Best bet is to find a local club and seek out experienced jet pilots. Before you fly it, you are going to need some training and a waiver. Before it flies, it should be inspected by someone with experience. Link up with the jet guys and work as a spotter for a season. You will learn a lot and save your plane. This is not a toy. Prop plane experience will help. But it alone will most-likely NOT get you to a successful experience.

Depends which side of Dallas you are on, but the Fort Worth Thunderbirds club at Benbrook has a healthy crowd of jet fliers. JT Hobbies in west Fort Worth is a big jet resource for help and advice.

Feel free to PM me.

There are a number of jet guys in and around Dallas. Let us know what area of town you live in and I'm sure we can put you in touch with someone nearby who can help you out.
