Default Swiwin 80B Turbine

Hey guys,

Picked up a jet with a Swiwin turbine. I'm new to Swiwin, and I see that one of their distributors (Bad Boyz RC) recommends their specific oil, however, they don't have any in stock. I know there are plenty of turbine oil out choices there, but do you guys have any recommendations for an oil that is kind of "universally" good, that would work for this engine?

Thanks in advance.

I use Kingtech oil in that engine with excellent results so far.

Interesting. Available from Walmart and $72 for a little more than a gallon......

Wonder if anyone is running it, I'd like to see a 20 or 25 hour tear down after using it before I considered switching

Aero shell 500 works just fine. I have over 20 hours combined between my swin 80 and 190. Countless hours on all sizes of AMT Engines.

Very good. That oil rings a bell - many years ago (I just got back into the hobby) I recall Aero Shell being a recommended oil for the Jet Cat. Thanks everyone for your replies and for your assistance!
