Dave, don't forget the K&B 100. but you need at least one more 2-stroke, so how about an HP 61 GP with a front mounted slide carb with an accelerator pump ?

hey Gary, that's some slick fuel tank mount right there !!

BTW, I have a Red Fox running thew my yard just about every day, and the city wont do anything about it the SOBs

Jim
Saito engines, more popular than Denny Crane and Captain Kirk all rolled up into one.

We had a visitor in our yard yesterday. It was the biggest red tail hawk I have ever seen. He was perched on a concrete column then swooped down on one unlucky squirrel and landed on another column. He basked the squirrel's head into the concrete and flew off. My dog wanted out so bad she wanted to chase that big bird. I wasn't about to let her be the main course to the squirrel appetizer. .

Thanks!
Will try again just for kicks. Was stopping me after uploading.
No biggie. Can't get my taranis radio to update either without sending it back to Aloft.
Sort of device challanged, unless I am weilding a hammer. They just work every time😁

Could just convert someone's way to big flight box👍


Opps. That's not a Saito in this end😁

Oh i would'nt worry your head off about that.At least it's a nice fourstroke radial.Sometimes here you get pics of moto guzzi's (yew!),tractors,milk carts,ducati's and lime green harleys in the background of every saito engine shot.Usually the harley is in focus and the saito is not
ps one time bruce posted a shot of his new f250,if only it was green.
pps i like your old wooden flight box come engine stand...how many beers can you take to the field in that?

How wide is that beauty? Bet it would spin a 20" 4 blade with ease.

Default Break in during high humidity

Fact or fiction? It is not a good idea to break in engines during high humidity conditions. I'm staring at my brand spanky new Saito 82b and I'm feeling strong urges to fire it up but we're fogged in.

Flying in the fog can be a blast , go for it!

Never have used a test stand for breaking an engine in. Reserve the stand for initial setup perhaps but I always do the real breakin on the wing.

I would just take the same after run precautions of drying and after oiling that I would on any damp day.
Some folks may not, but I do.

Other than that,the engines that I broke in on damp days never seemed one bit different than the dry ones.

And also strickly forbidden to listen to headphones or use any device that impairs hearing others at the field. We have a drinker at our field that listens to music so loud that I can hear what he's listening to and he flies his 3d planes right over the runway 90% of the time. Nobody can get his attention so we just wait until he lands to fly. He's been impossible to talk to anyway, even without the headphones. The club voted that when pattern flyers show up at the field 3D flying over the runway must cease, that doesn't matter to him either, he just does what he wants. If you ask him why he'll tell you that he feels justified in his actions because he's investing $1000 / year in improvements. Well I can't deny that, we have one of the nicest burmuda grass runways in the state. But still, it IS irritating.

irritating is also having "Life Insurance" adds on the Saito page. my god you can never get away from people wanting your money, I guess in their minds they don't make enough money,,,, how sad for them

just the yesterday day I had a Crematorium in NH send me a letter, LOL wanting my interest, the letter only had my address on it, I called them, I don't think they will be sending me any more letters.

humm, you know, now that I am thinking about that, I think I will have my Saito 100T "go" with me !

I think one of the worst times I got genuinely po'd was when during a physical I was telling my Dr. that I had just done a 600 mile round trip with my son on our motorcycles. Her very next words were, are you an organ donor. If the blood pressure cuff had been on right then it would have blown her out of the room. But externally, I maintained my cool and said no I'm not.

The Keleo ring is arriving tomorrow, the K&B 45 today.

Dave,

That is one of my pet p offs too.
I was out in the drive cleaning up my bike, some guy pulls into the drive and walks up.
He made a comment about me having a dozen bikes in the garage.
Follows that up saying he is just the guy I need.
Turns out he was selling cemetery plots. Told him if he didn't get out of there immediately that he would need a plot before I would.


"Organ Donor?"

Yep,

well this is a bit off topic, but it goes to show how people can be, a guy I grew up with rides bikes, he is always buying the latest crouch rocket, he bought the first Ninja. I'm telling you he would buy a new bike every 2 or 3 years, always the fastest ones. well when I told him I was flying RC Helis he said Quote "oh,, that's an expensive hobby".. actually it's not that expensive, some years I never spent much over $300 on it and still flew just about every Saturday and Sunday.

but I'm done with Helis, I'm burned out on them, it's just planes and Saitos from here on

Fiction although it's possible to suffer carb icing if you strike the right day,you sometimes see icing on the tips of spray guns when blowing air through them if humidity is high.

Dave thanks for the fg100t pic,very deep finning around the cyl heads how long have they been out and is this the first of bigger gas engines from saito? i've always hoped they would make an inline twin or triple using the fa220 barrels.Now i've seen the fg100t i'm hoping they use the barrels off that engine and make me a big gas inline multi for a large mustang aka the galloping ghost with it's kolm inline triple engine.

ps the fg100t is listed at $2750.00 down under,imagine how many cartons of snake juice you could buy for that...
