RE: YS DZ160 LS/Pump setting

Thanks for your reply.

Any recommendations on how to tune the LS/pump? I richened the the LS (by screwing IN) for break-in.

Should the LS be set before the HS?

Thanks, Don

I have new YS DZ160. During break in I felt that the engine was too lean, even with HS needle valve way out (4+ turns). I increased the pump pressure by screwing in the pump/LS screw, and I was...

RE: RADIO HELP NEEDED! HOW MANY CHANNELS?

It's not just about the number of channels. An important consideration is the functionality/programability of the radio. The latter tends to increase as the number of channels goes up. You may...

RE: Cant start saito 180 with cline

One more thing. Assuming that you have a line, with a stopper, to release pressure in the tank, you should hear a hissing when the relief line is opened. This is the sound of the pressurized air...

Flies great (under the control of my 13 year old son) with the 1.25. Vertical lines have ample power for the sequences in Intermediate pattern. As I mentioned above, he uses an APC 16x6,...

RE: Saito 125 Owners....

My son and I have one in a CA Model "Epsilon" pattern plane. It probably has 150 flights and it's never had a dead stick. Tune it correctly and set the valve clearance and there's plenty of power. ...

RE: Second plane.

A Hangar 9 Ultra Stick is a great second plane. Not a huge jump from a trainer and does well in fun-fly events.

RE: Saito .80: High-end too lean; low-end too rich

Thanks. At 197 pages, "Welcome to Club Saito" has lost me. Seems like it should be it's own forum that has topics within.

RE: Saito .80: High-end too lean; low-end too rich

Flight testing showed a need to maintain a high idle in order to have full power in flight.

Saito .80: High-end too lean; low-end too rich

I just replaced the bearings in my Saito .80 and have been struggling to retune it. I find that when the high end is rich enough (max RPM just starts to drop), I cannot lean out the low end to the...

RE: Thinking About Getting into Pattern

Yes, the Epsilon is fine plane to start pattern. My son has been flying one I built for him (from a kit, easy build) for nearly two seasons. It's powered with a Saito 125 and has plenty of power.

RE: Hog Bipe Tail Weight

Check the balance again.

I have a Hog Bipe with a Saito 0.91. The battery is foward of the wing and the receiver is amidships. The balance is perfect without any weight added.

RE: Dropped my radio about 2 1/2" onto carpet.

My son dropped our Futaba 9CAP 2 1/2 *feet* onto *concrete*. We've been flying with it for a month in 90+ degree weather. You're probably OK.
