Mr. Toshiaki won Top Gun 2016 with his Type 22a Zero...flown by Dino DiGiorigio owner of Meister Scale Models. I think it was a Ziroli kit but can't be sure. Interesting that someone with his skills is starting to do what many of us are attempting...repainting and adding tons of detail to an existing air frame.

I' m not sure what that is about with the title Top RC. It obviously is not a TopRC Models Zero. Are you saying that it is or is not? Sorry to be confused by the post.

He has many pictures of a TopRC Model on his Facebook page dating back to 2017 and talks about putting a Saito FG 90 in it. This Zero is a Type 52 not the Type 22 he won Top Gun with. My guess, he likes to kit bash... like some of us do.

Just to clarify, the airplane in the pictures posted is indeed a Top RC Zero ARF that Toshiaki is modifying, obviously, to be more scale. He also built and competed at Top Gun with a Meister Scale Zero several years ago. I believe the cost of transporting the Meister Zero back to Japan was not economical and so it passed into the ownership of Dino DiGorgio, owner of Meister Scale.

I see it now, Thanks for clarifying.

Default HELP!! Canít get my Saito FG84R3 to run right


I cannot get my Saito to run right. Throttle is wide opened and I can only get up to high 3000rpm. Lean in and lean out and still it does not get to 6000 rpm. When I broke the engine on a bench it was running fine at high and low rpm. Initially, I thought it was because I had the fuel tube too long inside the motor box and the carb pump could not pull the gas. So I shortened the tube and it kinked so no fuel to the engine. So I decided to run the part of he fuel lines outside the box so it will not kink. Yet it still cannot reach optimal high rpm. What am I doing wrong? Please help. Thanks.

Sounds like some trash got caught in the carb, Remove the cover plate and look at the screen inside the carb.

I had the same problem. It turned out to be trash in the carb. Are you using an in line fuel filter or a klunk filter?

re-examining my set up, it looks like I have ignition wires 2 and 3 mixed up. That maybe is the reason why it is not working properly.

Do yourself a favor, even if the ign wires fix your problem.

Pull and fully clean/flush your tank. Nix the onboard inline filter.
Go get you a weed wacker filter and install it on your fill line from your gas can.
