Unless the oil content is very low, you are going to have to add so much castor that it will turn it into syrup.

That pretty much sums it up.
The Cool Power is 17% synthetic/0% castor.  You will have to add 26.2 ounces of castor to balance out to 17% synth/17% castor(50/50 oil). Your total oil content will then be 31.1% oil, and the nitro will drop to 20.8%. That's too much castor to be using drugstore stuff, so you'll need to buy a quart of Klotz or some similar racing oil. Maybe they'll let you return it if you give them that information. It just ain't a viable product for Cox engines.

I have some Tornadoes including some pushers that I had promised JPvelo and Dinsdale I would send and never did.  I'll get that bag out and take a pic of what I have and keep the promise I've so far broken.

Tell me, what's so special about Tornado props?

To me the tornados and topflites look to made from nylon whereas the props I'm getting online seem to be more of a plastic (softer) Turning those type of rpms could cause a more flexible prop to flatten out,thats just my thinking.

Softer props do flex and de-pitch under load. My Tornadoes are super soft. Softer than Cox rubber duckys. When I get all this upcoming flying business behind me, I'll get that sack of Tornadoes out and make good on my ancient promises.

Looks like you got over $200.00 worth of stuff. Yea... it's bittersweet to get the great deals knowing there won't be any more there again. Maybe you can stay in touch with the 1/2A guy and do some flying together? I wish I had someone interested in 1/2A around here.
