I don't know about Nitro, but they sell a lot of alcohol down there in the spring!If you can't get fuel then get another hobby like sight seeing.

There are mexican runryder members here!

"the mexicans love to steal anything they can get their hands on!"

Hey,

Be careful of that statement. That is a form of racial prejudice. Hope nobody gets offended.

My R50V2, 9ZWc2 & field equipment went to Cancun and returned perfectly safe with the exception of what posted here.

One can't get fuel in Cancun, but I managed to smuggle a gallon through airport security and the airline ... which was good and bad !

good: I flew my heli at sea level and had tons of fun.
bad: makes me wonder what all the fuzz about airport security checks is all about; just a little thinking and a reason is all you need.

I will post some pics later on
