Has anyone tried something else than methanol/castor mix?
The reason I am asking is because I have a place on the Azores islands
and you simply cannot get glow fuel there. I could carry the castor oil
over but I need something other than methanol as a substitute.
I read various old threads here and someone suggested alcohol, has
anyone actually tried using it?
If I can't use glow engines there I would have to use electric for the
smaller models and a strimmer/weedwackers/chainsaw engine for a large
camera plane I want to build. Shame to waste all the glow engines I
have kicking around though...
