Has any one been using the no-nitro magnum fuel, and ordered any lately? Buzz said the needle settings are now set a little richer than last years version of fuel. We just ordered a bunch of new fuel, and have been told to go a quarter richer, then come back lean to tune.
Has anyone else been using this fuel, and noticed the change?

Yep a little richer, more power and it runs a little cooler it also will run on the normal plugs... I've ran 4 gallons in the last 2 weeks. Pm me with your questions this will get moved to the fuel topic and or closed.

well, really no questions, I was just wondering why I hadnt seen anything about it in the fuel section. There used to be a thread that we followed for a while, but I cant even find it now. I still have a case of the old fuel, so it will be a couple of weeks before I have to tune my OS50 and OS70 and YS50 to it, so I have time to read all I can. Yeah, Buzz said that we could go back to the regular plugs also. So pretty much, if you are just changing over to the new fuel, from lets say, regular 30% nitro, you could almost just put it in the tank and start tuning it lean from where your at?

Buzz sent me 2 cases for a funfly 2 weeks ago and I started running it there I had to go about a 1/4 of a turn richer and I tried a bunch of different plugs. I found that the enya #3 was about the best. I also seen the temp drop. Before it was around 200-210 now when your in the power range it right at 190...

with the old version, we were running the back plate temp at around 105-110, which is around 180 on the head, so we were running a little on the rich side still, so we should be Ok to just start tuning it from where we are at now, I would think. thanks for the input though Hayes. I feel a little better about it now.

Magnum fuel
I have with me right now a gallon of the no nitro stuff. i have yet to try it out, but i have seen it in action.

i honestly couldnt tell the difference from watching someone. and i had no idea until someone mentioned it was a new fuel, it was later i found out that it didnt have any nitro.

i have heard some people say you need to be careful with the needles or you can burn up your motor pretty quick.

i guess the only other bad thing is that you need a special glow plug, which i have as well. so you cant just pop over to any hobby shop and grab an OS8. atleast for now...

i am just waiting for a day of good weather to try the stuff out. but ultimatly it is supposed to be cheaper due to the lack of nitro which makes up a large part of the cost.

Hi Furious Predator,
After you burn the gallon you have the next gallon you get should be the brand new blend and it will run on any glow plug..

So let me get this straight. I'm burning Wildcat 30% CY fuel, and some Wildcat 20% heli mix.

All I need to do is richen my main needle valve ~1/4 turn, keep the same glow plug and fly like I normally would.

Yes?

Also on the older blend people often removed shims to get the power out of it and have it run/transition better.

Is it still necessary to remove/reshim the motor?

the more transparent the switch the better IMO

For everyone....
The brand new blend of Magnum DS is like changing fuel brands just reset your needles and fly...
It does run a lot cooler than 30% it is doing great on the normal plugs. It's making loads of power and transitioning with no problems.
There is no need to remove shims it's making as much power if not more than the 30%

If you want more power then you can remove the shims but I have 5 engines that are running no shims and it works great. Then I have a TT53 that still has the shim in it and it is running great on the new blend...

Hope that helps.. Any other questions let me know...
Thanks,
Marc

Guys what's the price difference between 30% nitro gallon and this one?
I can only get 30% here but if thre is a considerable difference I might start bugging "the" hobby shop to start bringing this fuel instead

Intelligence chases me, but I'm a lot faster! Fernando
