Smoke Oil Recommendations

Hello Guys,

new to the turbine scene and new to smoke system.

PNP HSD models , do have a smoke system installed right from factory and looks pretty impresive from videos. Might fly smoke on few days when the weather is nice and other days on empty smoke tank , hope that's OK.

recently been seeing a lots of videos of smoke oil related burns ups/ignition on models on FB, so was paranoid.

so wanted to pick a good smoke oil that has good fire retardant properties.

Sullivan smoke oil ( super dry renamed ) Vs Kynetic Smoke Oil

Sullivan boasts to be non volatile, hence no fumes ? wont vaporize..

but kynetic says " non-flammable formulation which causes it to be an extremely safe and superior alternative to dangerously ignitable home-made oil and fuel mixtures.

leaning towards kynetic..what are your thoughts?

The stuff that's labeled as Sullivan, is actually Super-Dri. It's what I've always used and it's what most of the full scale aerobatic guys use.

Looking for non flammable. Option. Too many fire accidents at field due to smoke systems. Kynetiv seems the only only out there which is non flammable
