hi guys ! sup ? hope u all are doing good Smiley
just as the topic  says, I plan on building my first rc nitro plane ... it will me made of coreflute/coroplast .... the engine I will be using will be cox .049 rc cruiser engine with throttle ...  here are the questions :
1) does the cox Canadian website ship engine to India ? what are the shipping and custom charges ?
2) does hobbyking ship to India ? if so what are the shipping and custom charges ?
3) i have a redcat racing shockwave rc nitro buggy .... I use the tornado 20% nitro fuel (the availabe on rcskyhobbies)on it and it runs great ..   will I be able to use the same fuel on my cox engine ?
4) also if  I brew my own fuel without any % of nitro , will my engine still start and run ? what will be the difference in performance in nitro vs no nitro in my plane ?
5) will any 9g servos work ?
6) I've seen a lot of nitro coroplast plane builds but once again I would like to confirm that if its possible to make a nitro rc out of  coroplast ?
.....thanks in advance Smiley .....

I have seen many flying nitro engines with methanol + castor oil mix for airplanes.You need not go for expensives stuff as flight engines run at lower speed than nito buggies.It is better to buy from local hobby shops for engines rather than importing them ( if it worth the import duty + shipping).You can buy engines from indian manufacturers like UMS technologies.  Wink

I exclusively use electric powerplants but Coroplast planes, better known as SPADs, were exclusively flown on fuel engines when they were first conceived. Hobbyking ships to india and if you do not go overboard with the package size or order price, there are no custom hassles. Shipping is quite reasonable if using registered airmail(takes an average of 10 days to arrive). Smiley

1. Yes, shipping reasonable. Customs charged occationally only on EMS.
2. Yes, same as above.
3. Yes, recommended blend for cox is 20% nitro.
4. Yes, absolutely but with lesser power.
5. Yes, absolutely. But preferable to use metal gear due to higher vibrations.
6. Yes, absolutely but try to keep it light since it is equivalent to less than 100 watts of power plant.

You should be able to use same fuel without any issue. Ensure lube is atleast 15% out of which maybe 5% castor if not all.

5% castor is recommended but all synthetic should not be issue.  As long as it its not it not extended prolonged usage over long periods
