10 More flights on My Saito at the Warbirds and classics flyin in Rosewood IN (west of Louisville, KY across the Ohio River) Temps at around 34C or 94F. After landing you couldn't touch the engine because it was so hot The engine is flawless! I counted some where between 3 and 9 flips to hand start the engine. The tick over idle is really special, several other Larger Saito Gas radials were in attendance. Most box stock.
One did drop a jug and couldn't sustain flight on the two and it was bellied in without any damage. I didn't get any additional info since i was flying at the time.
