Been thinking of doing that myself. Big question though, would a OS 55HZ loose a bunch of power if I ran that on 20%? (vs 30%). Trying to see if I can get away with only having to take 1 jug of fuel with me to the lying field.

$34 a gallon? Whew, I'd quit flying nitro if fuel was that expensive. Could you do something like Magnum fuels where if you order 2 cases it's $30 per 1.25 gallon bottle? That works out to $24 a gallon if my math is correct and shipping is included in that price.

I get all my fuel at Toledo and/or IRCHA. Great prices at these events.

I bought my first electric 90 a couple months ago. It's nice, but there is NO WAY it will replace my nitros!

I like nitro better than electric but the price of fuel is the reason I own all electric now Nothing like the smell of nitro in the morning or evening

We pay £30 a gallon of 30% in the UK, thats about $48.50 USD.

60% of the time, it works every time!

maybe you should try some gas (petrol) power

15-20 minute flight times on 50 cents worth of fuel

Inadequate power to weight for anything but tooling around .. hence zero fun .. I'd rather pay for nitro or batteries
