Hi,

Im currently using coolpower 30% which runs flawlessly, but is nearly 30 a gallon and now that am starting to fly more i should be looking to do a gallon a weekend.

I have been told by some people that WILD CAT LDV is good fuel and at 15 a gallon is brilliant.

But some people have had big issues in the past with it.

Also i have been told that is causes your engine to over heat.

Any Experienced flyers that use this fuel?

Cheers
Stan

yep,we used to use it at the field stan at one point, it worked ok,but one day we all had bad batches that caused the engines to run excessively lean,and mine actually cut in the hover.mark had the same problem too.about a year ago,some english pilots on runryder also had the same problem,and had a refund i think on four gallons.there were rumours that this was due to the fuel being frozen during shipping.i don't really know the cause,but it seems this thing crops up every so often.I think the chances are the fuel you have will be ok to use,myself personally,i would prefer to use magnum or coolpower.
