Hi guys

i have just bought a gasser second hand but not flown. What oil are you using here in the uk. I plan to strip the heli and rebuild from scratch. I have also bought the metal A arm and the battery tray supports. Is there anything else you would suggest. I seem to be on my own up here in N Yorks so any suggestions will be gratefully received

Cheers

Mick

Hi Mick,
I have a JR gasser and I use Castrol 747 racing oil with a 40:1 mix and it is absolutely fine.

However I know for a fact that a lot of guys in the UK are now using an oil called "AMSOIL". This oil is capable of running between 80 and 100:1 mix and it is working fine. I will probably try this when the Castrol is finished. At present it can be got from John White Models and it costs approx £15.00 per litre

Sorry I cannot comment on the Predator as I have no experience.

Best Regards

Trevor

Hi Mick,
I am actually from Glengormley on the northern outskirts of Belfast. Our Club site is in Crumlin which is close to the International Airport. If you are ever back in N. Ireland...give us a call.

Best Regards

Hi, Mick i live in Cheshire and have a P gasser since last May, i am currently running on Amsoil which i bought in america on holiday, it runs superb, it is hard to find over here and expensive, if you cant find it stick to high quality 2 stroke synthetic motorcycle racing oil for air cooled engines.

Get me out of here
