Dear Buddies,

I am Mr Lee here, an avid RC Modeler for more than 20 years till recently.

As we all know, nitromethane and methanol is poisonous and highly toxic, causing blindness and death.
10ml ingestion will summon death.

Everytime after run, sure we get red eyes, coughing and itchy skins.

A few years back, OS has designed bio-ethanol engine, but bad news is for airplane only.

Any expert buddies out there know any 0 % nitromethane ethanol fuel composition or alternatives for nitro fuel ?

Most of time I play Nitro RC Car and at times Nitro RC helicopter.

Thank you.

Regards,
Prof. Lee

Professor,

I have been using nitromethane fuel for 49 years and it hasn't made me sick. I know some guys that have been using it longer. It has accidently gotten on my hands, feet, testicles and face. Yea, it burns some, but so does rubbing alcohol.

You're going to die anyway, you don't have to become some Al Gore fanatic.

I did experience burning and red eyes. And, sneezing, inhale the fumes.
My vision is blurry nowadays. Also, You can check wikipedia on the dangers.

An article from Ohio State University
Ethanol is not toxic (unless drunk to excess), but methanol
(also known as wood alcohol) is poisonous.

This is the drinkable (though toxic) alcohol, the active ingredient in beer, wine and spirits. Methanol (methyl alcohol, wood alcohol) is much more poisonous and isn't drinkable at all, it kills people.

http://www.physics.ohio-state.edu/~.../E15.5.pdf.xpdf

My friends and me myself experience the sickness. Good real life examples.

Nitromethane is also carcinogenic, causing cancer. Both Methanol
and nitromethane are highly toxic.

Regards,
Prof. Lee

Maybe its time for you to make the change to electric power.
Its health hazards are relatively low.

Yes there is an alternative and it's called electric. Use lipo batteries. However, we must by batteries from foreign countries because "big oil" has bought all the battery technology patents and locked them away to keep us dependent on them.

I also wonder if the dude who started this post even flies anything at all. If he did he would already know about lipo "green" power. Sounds like silly propaganda to me. Are we taking baths in our heli fuel?????

Nitro Fuel Replacement - Toxic Nitromethane and Methanol !!!
Yes, I am looking into battery. Actually I just bought kyosho inferno VE brushless, it is fast.

but, I like the sound of engine. OS came out with Bio-ethanol, which is much safer than Nitro. But, this engine is for airplane.

Gasser engine is one alternative. But, too big the size. 1/5 scale.

It is true. Nitro and Methanol are both very poisonous. Fumes, contacts, smell, not necessary ingestion by mouth.

No, Propane is not toxic. it is not poisonous, but it is an asphyxiant. It can displace the oxygen in an enclosed area so that there is not enough air left for you to breath and you will suffocate. ( http://www.answer.com)

Sounds like the hobby isn't for you sir. Too Many health hazards. Maybe try monkey spanking it doesn't really have any ill side effects and leaves you smiling everytime.

If you're not living on the edge you're just taking up space !

Inportant safety note! Quit flying your nitro helis indoors!
Also, no matter how good it tastes never use methanol in mixed drinks! Follow these pointers and you should be fine.

Lastly, can anyone give me an example of NON bio-ethanol?

Anything is possible if you don't know what you are talking about!

Maybe some of you guys shall go back to school and get educated more. Even if the effects may not come immediately, it will in the long run.

And, please, all businesses are based on profits, only some social responsibility. Who cares you die or not ?

I think you own Thunder Power or something and are looking to disregard nitro to push lipo sales!!!

Why do you care so much? Cigarettes have killed millions; why don't you go save people who are inhaling mouthfuls of smoke all day long.

Are you suggesting we all pack it up and quite because you posted some abstract health hazard.

Please get to your final point... what is it that you want to accomplish here? I am curious.

Sigh, you just need to study more, research paper work, go back school and know the hazards,
That is why I always say to my students education is very important in this world. Learn chemistry. Know more. Don't try to argue, know the facts and dangers.

Educate the public. Education is really important in this world.

Prof Lee

What about the people who do drag racing,
What about the people who been flying planes since the 70s.
In some cases people cant use nitro fuel. Most of others its fine.
We can read a jug of fuel and see its bad for us. Dont need some random dude trying to get us to stop flying nitro.
just my 0.02 cents.

Nitro is Dangerous
From the sense of chemistry, it is very poisonous.
Sigh, Still the same words. Education ~~ education, if you are my student, I will knock your head to cure your stubbornness. Think
boy, use the brain think maturely like a genius. No wonder there are
so many people got cancers and strange diseases nowadays.
Still the same, knowledge and clever brain is the most important.
