Hello all, I’m new to forum. However, I've read a ton of posts before becoming a member and there seems to be a constant request for test results. This is what I've got so far on My Saito 100.Normal0falsefalsefalseoNotPromoteQF />EN-USX-NONEontGrowAutofit />ontFlipMirrorIndents />
A little history first, I started as a glow guy then left the hobby for several years before getting back into it because the advances in battery and brushless motors intrigued me. Then I heard that sweet sound of a four stroke glow motor. I'm never going back to electric or 2 stroke. Ok, Here are my results:
After Very good break in:
First set up (Stock muffler and 15%n,17%O Fuel)
MAS sport prop 14x8
Absolute peak: 10450 RPM
Richened to: 10200 RPM
Idle: 1900 RPM
static thrust: Did not measure
throttle response: idle to full- about 1 second
Second set up (Turbo Header muffler, EXRA550 onboard glow driver set to come on below 25% throttle and Fuel 30%N,23%O)
MAS sport prop 15x6
Absolute peak: 10700 RPM
Richened to: 10450 RPM
Idle: 1600 RPM
static thrust: 15pounds
throttle response: idle to full- about less than a half second ( the response in the mid ranges from 25%-75% is absolutely amazing)
NOTE 1: In both cases i ran the props before and after balancing and in both cases I had close to a 150 rpm increase.
NOTE 2: The lower idle in the second setup is mostly due to the onboard glow driver but the 30% fuel also helps.
NOTE 3: I haven’t done any tests yet on the biggest cause of increase in RPM on the top but I bet its half fuel and half after market muffler.
NOTE 4: This engine runs very cool when using 30%N Fuel
LAST NOTE: I have learned so much from so many in this forum. Thanks for sharing.
