I recently bought an after run oil of Tornado company. I was wondering how do you insert the oil into your heli’s engine and in what quantity? As in an aircraft you can insert the oil through its carburetor, where as the heli’s engine is all enclosed into its duct.

You dont need to buy any fancy after run oil, just go to your hardware store or Walmart to get 3 in 1 oil, thats all Ive ever used.

Any other way to insert the oil as I don't have access to the plug. If I try to make one, then it will take a whole life time. I was thinking to insert it through carburator pipelines, what do you think

Squirt into the fuel line going to the carb and turn it over.

That may damage the seals for the needle valve .

At the end of the day , it gets dark .

Better yet, try "through" any of the four places the wasp mentioned and dont "throw" anything away. lol

Backplate is best because you can hit the rear bearing directly, which is the only thing that tents to corrode on the engine.

Just make sure you run the engine dry at low idle to leave no unburned fuel in it on your last run.
have fun

alright thanks for the help. I'll probably run it through the Exhaust or the Back Plate.
