All this talk about every one being scarred that they will not be able to get their fuel??? I do not see the problem here. My LHS has tons of it. I just bought 3 Gal from them and they have 8 more Gal left. yeah it went up from $22 a gal to $33 a gal but other than that I do not see any kind of shortage and they talked about it a bit but said they will have no problem getting it. So I do not see what the big fuss is all about??? Its Coolpower 30% as well. So what is the big deal. you guys act like its the end of the world an every one will be fighting over the last drop of nitro. I just do not see anything but the cost going up. Other than that nothing

None here

I am having no problems at all. They even say there should be no problem getting any. Can you ship Nitro?? If so I can ship it to you. Not sure though if you can or not. any ways I see nothing wrong other than the price has gone up. Still very easy to get. here and In MD I am told. I am in FL right now but called 2 hobby shops there and they even told me the same thing. No problems but price went up

louk05, I wanted to let you know my LHS sells CoolPower 30% AT $25.00 a gallon. If you buy a case, makes you an even better deal. I ordered a case about three/four weeks ago and he had it in the next week no problem. I located in York, PA

If you have access to Cool Power 30, you are in the minority. Tower Hobbies and most other stores do not have any in stock.
If your LHS is willing to ship, please let me know, as I would like to purchase some.
Also, I spoke with Morgan Fuels again today and they confirmed they are still not producing 30%. They do not have any information pertaining to the future of 30%. They stated that they should have more information by the end of July.

Fuel cannot be shipped by anyone wihtoua hazardous material shippers license.

You can find trucking companies that willl ship for you, but it will be expensive. I got quotes of $100+ for 2 cases of fuel as a single shipper. A fuel company has deals since they ship all the time. I know that Sig will ship truck fo about $100 from 4 cases to 14 cases.

There seems to be a good bit in the pipeline, but the last word from Morgan is they will not be making ANY 30% for a while.

Try magnum fuels if you need it shipped, they quoted me 264 for 3 cases of 30% shipped to my business location. Their prices include the shipping costs and they do not charge the added hazmat fee some other companies do. Of course there is the 3 case minimum.

I've been in the three or four local hobby stores that I pass in the ATL area during my weekly return and not a one of them had any heli fuel whatsoever. There were a few gallons of plane fuel hanging around but thats it.

Haven't been in this week so maybe things have changed, last gallon I found was two weeks ago, wildcat 30, paid 27 for it.

BTW the hazmat fee is not the shipper, but UPS who charges this.

If they ship other than UPS they may not have this fee. But I don't think anyone has enough pull to get UPS to not charge this.

One fuel company has a way around ti though. It turns out they don't charge the fee is the containers are quart size or smaller. So this comapny ships only quarts, but for every 4 quarts shipped, tehy include a free 1 gallon jug.

yes

I have had no problems at all and the HS at MD sais they will have it as far as they know and have no problems getting it. I got 3 cases from them and they had 8 more 2 days later. I will have to see how much they will sell a case to me for. I have not tried that. And helihihg. If you live near BelAir MD and can tell me what hobby shop that is I will be there to get a few cases just to make sure. But as far as I know no one on the east coast is having any troubles yet.

Nope, no Raptor.

I am building a Vibe 50, and the rest of the fleet are electric.
