The one I would use from Byron is # 3130230


I would then add 1.6oz of castor to bring it up to 20%. None of his castor/synth blends have enough nitro for my preference in Coxes. If you want them to last, 25% nitro is easier on them than your 30% and the performance difference is negligible for sport flying.
