How R U my friend ? I have an question for U , I have a Saito FA 90r3 radial, and was wondering if this older kit would be okay to hold up with this engine like the newer style kits that that have now ? I have never built a kit before and have been looking for sometime now on the right plane to put the redial on and thought that this kit would be the one do to the older style construction and look . And wat is the build weight for it ? That redial isn't the best for power but , if I could build the plane lite it would work out just fine. Well , let me know wat U think on all that if U would , and thank U for your time.

Hello Eugene! Thanks for your interest in the Corsair kit. I'm sorry for the tardy reply, but I'm on a road trip and don't always have access to the internet.
That Saito radial sounds like a nice engine, and I would think it would fly the Corsair really well, but I'm not sure about that. The information on the kit says it takes a .60 size two stroke, and normally that would mean a .90 4 stroke would be appropriate. However, I am not familiar enough with the Saito radial to give you a meaningful opinion. Perhaps other could give you a more meaningful opinion.
The box graphics claims the build weight in the 7-9 1/2 lb. range, which is a pretty big variance.
SInce I won't be home for at least two weeks, you have some time to gather other opinions. YOU have first shot at the kit, so if you still want it when i get back home, it's yours.
