Wish there was a way to get the smoke away from heli. Don't like waiting on batteries to charge to fly but sometimes cant see my heli for the smoke. Need to make a smokeless fuel.

Get a gasser. However if you can't see your heli for smoke it would suggest it's running very rich or you fly in zero wind!

Try to fly so the wind blows it away from you, or move the heli around a bit. The smoke sinks so some altitude helps. Otherwise you can also bottle it so I can sniff it in my hobby room.

We made up some rules can we have your moneys now.

Cool power has a low smoke fuel that is quite a bit less smoke. That would help but I have to agree it must be very rich

Omega 15% Nitro Fuel. You must be using 30%. Do you really need 30%?

they make an additive for gasoline that make the exhaust smell like candy, bananas, cookies etc... wonder if they could do that for Nitro?

Have you tried Magnum Fuel yet? It produces less smoke than the other brands and has great pricing. I think that CP also makes a low smoke version of heli fuel. I hope that this might help you out.

Aim for 200 degrees. Also if it's humid there will be more steam adding to the smoke.

Every fuel I have ever tried is the opposite.
The lower nitro content fuels smoke more.

The oil smokes. Not the nitro.

The OP needs to fly a few feet higher or make the heli move some.

I literally never use the word literally right.

I don't have the actual formulas for the fuel mix. I just go by what I see at the field. There are only two nitro flyers. His is 30% with huge clouds of smoke. Mine is 15% and minimal smoke at rich settings.

I agree, and the smoke that goes with a nitro is just icing on the cake!.
