Curtis Youngblood 30% Wild Cat formula
Does anyone have a spec sheet on the mixture of the Curtis Youngblood 30% "WildCat" Helicopter fuel formula? I think it was 30% nitro with 23% oil if I'm not mistaken. Using full synthetic Klotz oil.

I have several empty bottles...
You are correct.
YP-30 is 23% oil, 30% nitro and the rest, methanol with additives.
Say nothing about blend so probably was only Klotz and not Castor oil mix.

I prepare my mix with 18% oil...
1/3 Castor with 2/3 Klotz.

Klotz KL-198 seems to be the "low viscosity" heli oil if you are making your own:

I get the nitromethanol from a comercial glow bottle gallon 30% nitro.

I can prepare 6 gallons 5% nitro using 1/6 gallon 30% each.

I remember talking to Jarrett about this before at a funfly. He used to work for Curtis back in the day. If anyone would know other than Curtis himself i think he would.

Looking at the specs on the KL-198 Klotz is states for 20% Nitro, what should be used for the 30% Nitro?

Are you sure it means nitro content and not oil content
I take it as oil content 15% to 20% is usually the oil mix for most glow engines.
