That *IS* incredible. More so that it did it without any refueling! I wonder what engine they used, since it said they used "lantern fuel" That'd be "white gasoline" in the USA (in Europe I think they call that paraffin), though the term is fading in favor of, naturally, "Lantern Fuel". LOL. It's a common fuel for lanterns and cookstoves, very volatile, but R/C airplane engines?

I think they mean stuff like "Camping GAZ"- widely available in Europe it's some sort of liquified Butane - similar to that use in cigarette lighters . Used over here for camping stoves and lanterns ,it comes in small canisters about 3or 4 inches high and wide.I'm sur similar stuff must available in the US/Canada.Dave
