Default Saito 300 Twin W/C&H Electronic Ignition

Saito FA 300 TTDP, dual carbs, C&H Mark I (1997) Synchrospark electronic ignition @ 28* BTDC, Chinese 1/4 X 28 spark plugs, Morgan's Cool Power 15% nitro.

22 X 10 Zinger propeller, 7100 RPM, 32.2# static thrust, 5.696 HP.


Cheap Chinese spark plugs picked up 100 RPM/.9# thrust/.238 HP on top & allowed a more stable idle @ 1100 RPM over the Rimfire brand!

This is going on a 20# (est) 1/3 scale SIG Spacewalker. W/over 1.5:1 thrust/weight ratio it should go vertical quite nicely.

I think the fg57 tops out @6500rpm will be interesting to see how it compares with the spark conversion 300 twin carb.
