Is there any hope for 15% nitro fuel? Any way to make your own?

Of course!
You have several options to do that...

One option could be...

With one comercial 30% nitro gallon, split in two bottles.
Prepare one bottle gallon of FAI cero% nitro and split in two bottles.
Mix each bottle 30% with bottle zero % and you will get two 15% glow.

The local HobbyTown here has Omega, Cool Power, and VP fuels. All have a 15% nitro/18% oil mix. Those would work for helis. Sig Manufacturing lists a lot of nitro and FAI (no nitro fuel). Check out their Champion fuel.

As best I can tell, a lot of "heli" fuels that used synthetic lube have gone away, replaced by fuels using a mixture of castor and synthetic. But 15% nitro with at least 18% oil will do.

I dont know how you have come to the conclusion that synthetic fuel is gone?
Cool Power and VP are 100% synthetic

We have a guy here in Houston who blends fuel and has been consistent from gal to gal. Uses top notch oil, methanol,nitro and measures by volume, not weight.
