Most .12 & .15 sized engines typically run around 15% nitro. This isn't an ad but I've always had good luck with 15% Omega. It's best to experiment but remember that the higher the nitro content, the higher the stresses on the engine and thus shorter life. You may have to use another shim under the head if you get over 20%.

Is there a reason why you run Omega over Cool Power? I've been thinking about switching to Cool Power when I get a new engine.
