    RE: Saito 36cc Gas

    Thanks Mike, it might go well on your H9 Cap232G and or Extra 260? Could you also put a word in to keep the cost as low as possible so many of us could enjoy it too? It sounds so sweet, a real nice break from the rattle of the 2 stroke chain saw sound.

    RE: Saito 36cc Gas

    Hey mike?
    Could you post a sound byte on this?
    Perhaps on your web page??

    Or even have one running on a aircraft?
    Also how is the sound when compared to a Nitro 4-stroke??
    Same?

    I know you probly will not comment, so I am wasting space....

    It sounds the same as the nitro 220.
    It is a little weak for the Cap 232G unless you just want to do some mild aerobatics BTW.

    RE: Saito 36cc Gas

    Mike, what airframe would you recommend for excellent 3D and aerobatics?

    Justin, check this video out, it has pretty good sound.

    RE: Saito 36cc Gas

    Since I havent flown it in that type of model, I cant speak from experience. I think it would be pretty good in the H9 27% EX 260 but not stump pulling vertical.
    You dont want to use in in a model too small to so the vertical is big becuase the loading will be too high and thats very counterproductive to excellent 3D and precision.
    It is probably the PERFECT 150 size warbird engine, but for 3D I'll have to give some thought to a great airframe for it.

    RE: Saito 36cc Gas

    Cool....

    I have one more Q on this.....

    The Horrizon website lists the wieght as 66 oz! All up and done
    That is a whoping 4lbs!
    Is this really the weight?
    I thought about using it in a GP Hawk biplane, but that would be too heavy?


    Mike, could you make a quick comment about this??

    Thanks

    RE: Saito 36cc Gas

    What do you guys think of the new saito gas 220 in the Hangar 9 extra 260. If it weighs around 4 lbs all total i would think it would be a little heavy for the 260 . Mike M can you chim in please and tell me if your guys have installed one on the 27% extra 260. ??

    That says it all for me.

    Warbirds don't 3D.

    RE: Saito 36cc Gas

    How would this engine be in a Giant Super Sportster? 82" ws, 13-14.5 lbs.
    Of all the things I\'\'ve lost, I miss my mind the most.

    RE: Saito 36cc Gas

    Any thoughts on using a pair of these in a Ziroli P-61? Ziroli thought they would be ok but the FG36 is at the bottom end of the recommended engines and being a 4 stroke I'm not sure if it will generate as much thrust as a 30cc gas 2 stroke. Thanks for any help anyone can give.
