A little alcohol from his drum and a touch of oil and it won't be heli fuel long!

I get what your saying mike but let's get back to the juju.This free fuel gary has got has a high grade curtis youngblood heli history that can't be watered down spiritually...it's like having a bad relative in the family past or a group of heli pilots turning up just when normal pilots were getting along so well.

23% oil is way off of the scale for my Saito work horses lol!
12% synthetic and 2% to 4% castor makes them very happy.

Hey all, I've been in Fla. all week, I just walked in the door and the Pawnee plans were laying on the table. I had taken a chance and sent a $100.00 bill in the mail disguised among some photos I printed. I was $2.00 short but Mr. Warren P. Russel said to forget it. Many thanks to him. I'll get into it tomorrow. Beautiful elbow Gary.

Pete, I'm the bad relative but I ain't in the past yet.

Dave, they don't know you that well

Gary, I saw and read your Gmail tonight, sorry I didn't see it earlier, I am new to Gmail, I have only received 2 other Gmails, well I haven't checked it for a while, and> I didn't know that Google didn't inform people that they had received an incoming Gmail, this is why I was late to read it,
boy I wish I needed more engines, maybe I would buy one or 2 from you.

Jim
Saito, yeeaa baby, that's the ticket

You bought this little feller, we'll have to see the 65 to know which you bought. Congrats on that.

SO, power wise, FG 60R3, to a 60CC 2 stroke gas? Since I will be making the cowls for the P-61 myself I can fudge them a bit to make the Radial fit, but will a pair fly it!

There have been a lot of Saito's with the S designation, as to the H, it doesn't seem like anyone knows. 91 S, 120 S and 150 S for example.

I believe the H (High Powered High Cam Series) is when Saito upgraded the cam that all engines in that size use today

sorry for the edit

Jim

Thanks Pete, the 100 dollar bill was 2 dollars short, I'm going to send that too. The plans are very nice, no faded places and no double lines at all. No instructions so I'll have to plan carefully as I go long. Mr. Russel said to not worry about the 2 bucks but I am not comfortable owing someone. Rainy and miserable here today but 62 degrees, not entirely bad.

Yeah
The 30 is a good running little engine, i have a couple already but they didnít come with the bix. I was just cerise what the H on the box was for. I always thought it meant Heil engine but high cam or I high competition series sounds good to me.

Yep
got the little guy yesterday.
Looks like brand new. No carbon in the exhaust port.
So i added it to the collection and found i have to new style 40ís. A standard and a Golden Knight. Hmmmm how did i do that I donít know. But have been trying to get a Golden Knight of each engine i have. But i have a long way to go before i can accomplish that. I need to set my eyes on some twins and 3 cylinder radels
