My recipe for Smoke Oil

My recipe for Smoke Oil

1 part Super-Dri smoke oil
1 part Walmart automatic Transmission fluid
1 part Kerosine

This creates awesome smoke with excellent Hang time. Way better and cheaper than just the Super-Dri smoke oil by itself.

Hey,
At the Henry county Chili fly Jim Brooks had a smoke system on a cub with a Nitro saito on it. I asked him about it and he was using Baby oil for his smoke oil.

He said he buys multiple bottles at the Dollar store (he gets some weird looks too) and it works great, and your plane smells good too. LOL

Has anyone tried lamp oil for lamps used around the deck. Citronella odor might keep the Mosquitos away too.
