Default Is my Saito-FA80 stong enough for my Dragon Lady?

I have a Model Tech Dragon Lady 60. I have a Saito-FA80 that i want to put in it but i am wondering if there is anyone out there who has flown this plane with this motor. If so do you mind giving me some feedback. Thank you so much.

Don't know the dragon lady 60, but going by the '60', my bet is that the Saito 80 will be more than strong enough. Saito's are very thirsty and wear out rapidly, but they're POWERFULL!
I used to fly a (scratchbuilt) Cessna 172 with it; 7ft span weighing 12lbs. The Saito 80 made it climb out like an F15.

Don't run it lean, use a fuel with a little castor, keep valves adjusted, and use after run oil. You will find your Saito will last a long time.
Quickest way to short engine life is lean running.
