i was having a power problem with my raptor 30 v2, after the first gallon of fuel i could only hover 2 ft off the ground at full throttle ,i thought it was the stock muffler comming loose so i put on the tt up graded muffler on then i noticed i was burning 15% cool power 4 cycle fuel, i used 1/2 gallon of the fuel did i hurt my engine? the power problem didn't start until i used the 4 cycle fuel,i hope i didn't mess this thing up thanks Larry

The coolpower 4 stroke would not hurt your engine, it just has a little more oil in it so it is actually better for it anyway.

My guess is that your engine tuning or throttle pitch curves are incorrect. If you have 5 - 6 degrees of pitch at 50% throttle stick and 50% of the carby opened on the engine then you should be fine. If that is the case and it doesn't work correctly still, then your engine would most likely be running to rich and will require leaning out on the main needle.

I'm with jrpilot, I don't think that you hurt anything with the fuel.

It probably was the best thing you could have done. As far as lubing it. I use 4 oz of klotz for break in.
