CRRC 26cc oil mix??

So i recently purchased a mentor g 26cc arf, my first big gasser. I am getting ready to break it in and I ve been trying to find a clear answer to oil mix. The manual for the mentor says 25:1 for first two hours and 32:1 to 40:1 afterwards. What ratio is good for break in and what type of brand of oil?

Break in with the 25-1 standard two cycle air cooled oil. Then switch over to a full synthetic oil at a ratio of 40-1.

I have some valvoline 2 cycle oil and echo power blend. Would either of these work?

Brand is in the eye of the beholder. To me it does not matter. Just pick one and stick with it.
