PostSubject: Looking for upgraded RC tank smoke generator.   Sun Jan 22, 2017 1:48 pm

Hello! I am looking for a good smoke unit for my HL tank, my budget is below $50. I was going to get an IR system, but have put it on hold until I can speak to someone in the club to learn more about it, so I can make a good decision instead of just listening to people who I barely know, and making a decision with little to no knowledge about IR systems.

This is from a TARR MK I smoker running a 3S lipo.

Thanks for sending the videos. I checked on ebay and for the TARR Mk1 for about $35 for each, and the Mega stream bottle for about $34 per each, which is way too much. So do any of you know any websites that sell them at a cheap price? Thanks in advance.

He is the maker, no one else sells them any cheaper. Is this the one you are looking at?

I have lots of MegaSteam which is what most of us that have smokers use. It is $8.00 a bottle to club and you can pick it up at meets...

Yes, that was what I was looking at, thanks. Do you know if there are any alternatives instead of MegaSteam?

baby oil but a little stinky and gums up the works quicker. Although I have a bottle that cleans your smoker too so when it happens you can get a bottle of that off me at some point...

I see, thanks for the help. Do you think I can make homemade smoke fluid, like out of water and glycerin? Sorry about all the questions.

You can also use baby oil.

1. Baby oil is cheaper, 2. I would NEVER use water in this type of device. I know what you are thinking that e-cig formula but it is alcohol not water with the glycerin. I used to make my own and flavoured for my e-cig. (Finally quit smoking) costs more than baby oil. FYI Neither produce the smoke that the mega steam does.

Thank you, I think I might use baby oil or mineral oil as an alternative, until I can get some from the club.

Just make sure you don't use the fragrance ones.
