Byrons Fuel,
Power Master,
Morgan,
CoolPower,
Magnum,

Since my nitro 30 Shuttle will be thirsty the coming season after a little ease of transportation issue sorted out, I started with a gallon of Power Master 30/23 looking more like grape juice, wine even, somebody accidentally drink this and sue?

There was a time I found a bottle of energy drink, High-5, by the road side and thought it was nitro Byrons to me with same color contents, turns out to be a legitimate energy drink co. (looked for the pic , no luck)

$319 later and it'll only cost $5 a gallon regular pump plus 2s oil, the go 59 gasser looks a promising replacement for an os32, nitro becoming no longer a large expense.

Just acquired an old ORIGINAL condition 1st gen Shuttle with good condition canopy and mechanics about 2 hrs ago, real neat made in Japan, nitro os 32 too SEIZED lol, pic to come later.

now here's a nitro heli, lol, ohh the good ole days of flybar, plastic fantastic,

replete with Futaba AM radio and 4channel receiver, how did they do that? I guess it worked for its time. Blade clamps badly cracked underside tail control rod seized, no start mechanism or belt, flybar system not set up properly.

I saw it months ago without all the red construction tape, damn is it hard to remove, this heli actually looks simple and fun to fly, probably isn't a piece of cake, sure looks good for its vintage, SHELF QUEEN.

Back to the fuel-ture. Drink up my pretty! hahahahahaaa!

Who's got the best long term production of nitro fuel, guys who've been in biz as long as this heli is old?

Welcome to the world of fuel chemistry.

Wildcat?
Optifuel?

after doing the math the cost of gas is about 20c a flight tank where the cost of nitro at ten times that, and a battery mistake with lipo is more if there's an accident. Do the math, what is best?
