guys, my plane is a VQ .60 size P-40 Warhawk, it has a span of only 62 inches, and should come in around 9 to 10 pounds,, people have reported theirs came in at 10.2 pounds with a DLE 20cc Gasser, well that engine barely fit's in the cowl..
so with that weight of "at least" 9 pounds, I am looking at the Saito 115,,, but I'm betting your thinking> "for only $5 more I can buy the 125",
well, I wouldn't mind buying the 125, but with a span of only 62 inches I would have to use a prop at least 2 inches smaller than what Saito recommends as the 125's "Benchmak Prop", an APC 16x6,
and after seeing YouTube Videos of the Top Flight Corsair flying with an OS 95 4St, I'm thinking that the 115 may be the better choice. to add the 115 swings a 1 inch smaller prop than the 125,
so I would like comments on how well these 2 "glow" Saitos (115, 125) will run with such a small diameter prop, because I know how 4St's like their larger diameter props,
to add, being that my plane is a WW11 Warbrid I would be happy to use a 3 blade prop, I know that would help load the engine better than a 2 blade prop of the same diameter,
thanks big time guys !!
