Well I just got my brand new White Box Saito FA-100, but didn't have my depends on, cause I pretty much crapped my pants when I saw this beauty!!!!

Talk about some quality packaging, just dictates the quality of this engine!!!

Although the box looks good, that is one awesome engine. Can't wait to break her in and hear her purr.

Got my Saito 100 last week and it is pretty. This is my first 4 stroke and up till now I have flown only .40 and .60 size 2 strokes. I did not think about the Saito being much stronger than my .60s.

I started breaking it in a couple of days ago. Mounted it to my bench motor mount and C clamped the mount to a 12" concrete block. This is the same setup I have used many times. I sat the block, with mount and engine attached, on the retaining wall outside the basement door. Thought I was being smart, the wall is about 3 feet high, just right so I did not have to bend over to operate everything. The first couple of tanks I ran the engine at 4000 rpm with a 15x6 prop - everything was fine. The third tank I leaned it out a little and throttled up to around 6000 or 7000 rpm. I noticed some limbs that had fell in the yard and walked off to pick them up. When I got back to the engine it had almost pulled itself off the wall. It got ran on the ground after that! :stupid:
