RE: C-119 Flying Boxcar ARF

Rod:

From a conventional viewpoint, all Saito single cylinder engines have the exhaust coming out the right side. Some are straight, some are angled to the rear.

A twin can be just as easy to fly as a sport single, or it can be an airplane that Jimmy Doolittle wouldn't want to get near.

RE: Saito .82 / Will Not Idle

Justin:

Additional on the LS: In your post you say you've gone in 1/4 turn. You still have 2-3 turns to go. They are very rich at the initial setting.

RE: Saito .82 / Will Not Idle

Justin:

Your LS is PROBABLY, but not necessarily, still too rich. Turn it in 1/8 turn at a time and keep trying.
