Hi Rick. Your excitement is apparent. If you bought the engine new, the literature that came with it will tell you what range of blades you can use. I know the factory recommendation for a 1.20 four stroke is a 15 X 6 prop for break in.

G'day JollyPopper,
Thanks for the reply, sorry its taken me so long to get back ,but I've been deverted with family matters .
I will only get to run the motor this weekend and probably fly the plane the following weekend.I seem to have miss placedmy manual but I found another saito site on the net that recommends for the Saito 125a 2 baded props from 15x7 to 17x6 and 16x6 for break in. I will there fore probably use my 14 x 7three bladed master airscrew for the first3 tankfulls breakin and then fly with the 15 x 7 three blade..


cheers again Rick.
