I took 'delivery' of some bits and bobs from an old club members daughter a few years back after her Dad
had gone to the bloke in the sky.
Judging by the radio gear it had in it (27mhz AM) it hadn't been used since the late 70's and bless him
the old boy used castor based and after run oil but cleaning his gear after he flew certainly wasn't 'his
thing'. Very Happy
Anyway I took a look at his OS35 which as you can see was filthy outside but once I opened her up
I was amazed just how clean she was inside.
Again a real hard used engine from a 60in (don't laugh) 7lb model but gleaming interior.
Bottom line I'm going to have 2% castor mixed in all my 'proper' engines fuel henceforth.

Assuming you meant to write "20%," I'm a fan of pure castor too. I've been known to have one unexpectedly go lean on me during a flight, maybe a needle shifted or something. And I'm stuck for 30 laps envisioning my engine overheating and destroying itself. Castor will save it from dying such a tortuous death every time.

Slimy outside is easy to clean. Broken motors are expensive. I love my castor too.

Sounds like you will just have to stock several fuels for your flying and racing needs.
