There you go!

Heli fuel has a high oil content, that can cause problems on some engines. Be aware you have to open the needles to get a proper tuning with the thicker fuel.

Thanks alot for that info, I didn't know that. It's a good thing I didn't get it fired up and run it for awhile. Looks like the wife's gonna have to head to HobbyTown. On second thought that could be a bad idea. Town is all I have to say lol. I will try new fuel and flushing the carb. Thanks alot guys for the help.

the engine should still run but needles settings will be quite different than with car fuel , it wont hurt a thing as long you keep temps in a safe operating RANGE
