RE: First Low Wing Plane?

I finished my Somethin Extra & Saito 72 as my first low wing plane a couple of weeks ago. I believe most would agree the SE is more 3D/Aerobatic capable than the 4Star or the Sporster so I think the...

RE: Chipmunk or Something Extra

I flew my SE for the first time today and it was fantastic. It is my second plane, and I was able to take-off, trim it out, and land it myself on the very first flight. The flight was so clean, my...

RE: Tree Trimming Videos

And when did you first realize you hated trees? Is it "all" trees, or just that particular tree? Do you get excited at the sound of chain saws? How about when you pass by a chipper machine? Do...

Somethin Extra/Saito 72 Maiden Flight

Graduated from Falcon 56 trainer to Somethin Extra today. Things went GREAT! I LOVE the plane and I actually did all the piloting on it's first flight. Took off in about 30ft at half throttle....

RE: Dubro HD LG on Somethin Extra

What size prop are you using with the stock gear? The 12" APC I plan to use with my Saito 72 had zero clearance with the plane level and the wheels that came with the kit.

Suggestions on linkage on SE with Saito 72?

Thanks Jhart!! That was one of the solutions I was looking at but the input arm was so close to the side, I didn't think it would work well. I'll just relieve some of that side like you did. I was...

Suggestions on linkage on SE with Saito 72?

Allen, I like that idea and will file it away for future use, but on this plane I don't want to put any more weight toward the front then necessary and there really isn't any room on the backside of...

Suggestions on linkage on SE with Saito 72?

OK, I must be dense, but neither of these answers make any sense to me. On the flex cable, that is the same thing that comes with the kit, but the cable comes out of the bulkhead high on the right...

Yes, thanks for the info! I will have some additional "opportunities" using the Saito, including prop clearance, throttle linkage, balance, so I'll have to work through those too. I've put my...

Shipping is a few buck less too, but they aren't available yet. You mentioned they said the molds will be in next week but when will they start shipping them? I'm hoping to have the plane in the air...

Saito 72GK Fuel Question

OK, I've made the mistake of reading the manual before I started to break-in the engine. Now I'm confused. The manual recommends 20% oil content and 10-15% nitro. It says NOT to use a 100% castor...

Red's Battery Tester down & dirty, take 2

OK, maybe I tried to re-invent the wheel a little too much last time by using the resistor. I invested about $3 for the #44 bulb and the holder at RS. Then I soldered some solid wire to the leads,...

Super Sportster vs Somethin' Extra

I'm thinking if he got the LA as a package deal, he may have more than made-up the $5 difference. Apparently he is satisifed with it's performance. Perhaps he may be able to do more than 2 outside...
