If you think price is worth more than aggravation, go ahead. You will quickly learn one of two things. You will learn to properly and accurately tune a nitro engine, or you will learn to heed advise from people that have been doing this way longer than you. Do you want to fly? Or do you want to experiment?
On the other hand, if you are worrying about nitro price, this hobby might not be for you.
Sorry if I was harsh. But the reality cannot be covered with a blindfold.
