I would use the Cox 25%

It’s more appropriate for that engine. The other stuff is good for your Foxes and older engines.

Yes,  I just put a meter across it and it checks good, but I didn't fire it up.  Charging my igniter and flight box battery first.

Turns out the Traxx is 10% nitro, and I have both 25 and 35% Cox fuels.

On a sadder note, sometimes an engineer would take a bend too fast,
and the long logger wagons would spill their loads and destroy a whole
miniature town and injure or kill many tiny people. Sad  Many tiny tears
were shed.

I wouldn’t recommend building that Blackhawk reliant
It was my first control line plane and I never got to fly it because it was too fast and sensitive for the experienced CL acro pilot that tested it, let alone a beginner

It's ok Bob, I always get a kick out of your sense of humor......

I have this vision of Casey Jones telling his fireman to jump while he rides the speeding locomotive to his demise.

Reminded me of this book that my son-in-law gave me.

Flea market engines - Page 2 P1010833
Flea market engines - Page 2 P1010832
Flea market engines - Page 2 P1010831

Romance of the rails, full of stories of train wrecks, the people involved and songs written about them. Oddly enough, nothing about Casey Jones.

Wow. I am not much for reading books or such, I think that book would definitely be one I would sit down to read. Some of the stories I am sure would be truly unimaginable. While on another note, we had a major train wreck 3 miles from my home many many years ago, much before I was a thought, and even my parents were thoughts then...

I don't know Eric. Guessing here. I have two other Dragonflys, one NIB, both have mufflers. Dannels/Sitter's book doesn't have much on the Dragonfly, Someone might have just put a slit cylinder on it, but there are no indications of a muffler ever being attached. Huh...

Checked the book Chancey, couldn't find it. I think it just covers USA wrecks.

I finally fired up the Aero/Norvel, flooded it cleared it and got a couple of spirts.  Left it for a couple of days, angled it up to get the last bit of fuel from the clunk tank for a decent run.  Didn't bother to tach it.  Nice engine but I don't have anything to put it on.  So to the display case it goes after a cleanup.

Cleaned up the Dragonfly and Black widow too.  Replaced the needle on the DF, someone soldered a nut on the original.

I like your new Avatar picture Eric, can't see for sure but it looks like German made Krauss Maffei.  Unique locomotive made for the Southern Pacific Rio Grande railroads.  Powerful engine for use in the mountains.  Used hydraulics instead of gears to transfer power,  not unlike the automatic transmissions in cars.

Ah, better picture Eric.  Looks like a C-Liner or F3/F7. I didn't give the Norvel much of a chance, to much of a rush. I have a couple NIB, maybe later I could set up a comparison.

Not from laying floor Eric, but maybe from laying mulch.  I did scavenge some of the floor cut-offs, covered my old oil soaked roll-around with them.

Try with a better prop on the Norvel, it looks like a zinger 6x3 on there? That's too much.
A 5x3 prop or the flexible Cox 5x4 prop is a better suited load.

It is a 1 cc engine, hence the 10, there should be a decimal there. I had one, the cylinder is nickel plated.
