Default 60 size plane for Satio 100

I just lost my U Can do 60 after 2 years, the plane flew pretty well but came in at about 7.5 lb, may a bit more. I am looking for a replacement but can't seem to find anything much better, I had actually ordered the Fliton Inspire but it needs a 100 like I need another hold in my head. Moreover the modification for a larger tank and the elev servo is more trouble than I want to go to for a already expensive plane. ( has weird covering too) All of which leads me back to the question of finding a plane. I need to stay under 7 lb or I'll just buy another U can do. Any thoughts out there. I fly 3D mostly, speed is not important at all, just performance. thanks

I have the H9 .60 twist with a Saito 100 on it. I like to do the 3D stuff as well and i am
finding this setup to be a very nice match. I do not weigh it but if you really want it i
could weigh it up over the weekend and let you know.

that would be cool. I had a smaller Twist with a Saito 82 and never got it to feel right. Great engine, lots of power but just never did anything really good. That's the reason I had not considered the larger one. Another person had said the bigger one flies better. In any case if you could let me know about the weight that would be great. thx

this one flies pretty nice, way better than the 60 size with the 100

Try the Aeroworks Edge 540 60-91, its a good plane with a scale aparency, and have a good flight performance, the construction it's very good.

well the Do actually is a great fun plane to fly, if your a perfection flyer then go to another but if you just want to have a really fun time this is the plane for you.it does the best flatspin i know of, tip spins are flashy, slow flight is almost at a crawl, and with this engine vertical....well i dont have to say it,
it isnt great at knife but with a little mixing its ok, rolling harriers are not great but i dont do them well anyways, just beef up the LG a little and have fun.

there is more if you want to talk to all the guys on our thread and all the help you need to get it going just click on the link below and go to the end of the thread and ask all the questions you want and then read from the beginning to learn more

Skip,

If you're not averse to profiles, I can highly recommend both of these for the Saito 100:

Mojo 60:
http://www.swanyshouse.com/mojo60/mojo60.html

Sabre 56:
http://www.billyhellrc.com/sabre56.html

My Mojo 60 weighs 5.5 lbs with a Saito 100. It's a real dream to fly. Very easy TR's, almost no coupling for all KE moves (very slight roll, but no pitch coupling on my plane -- easily mixed out). IT's also remarkably tough for a balsa bird with the innovative fiberglass tube/integrated motor mount. I found assembly actually FUN with this method of construction, as most everything self jigs on the table.

I've flown the Sabre also, and it's a great design-- very similar to the Mojo 60 in performance.

happy hunting,
Joe

Thanks for the replay. I read most of the threads, seems like most folks like the set up. I am leaning that way. In your previous thread you said !QUOT! and with this engine vertical! QUOT!. What did that mean? Are you turning a 15 x 4W or ??? 15 x 6 seems to work best on the 60 size but more prop wash on this one I would think is better. Looks like Tower has them in stock.
Thanks for your input.

i run a 15x6, with the 100 on the 46 ucd(which in reality is more a 60 than the 60) yu dont need a "W" prop, just use a little throttle managment and keep the downline speed down and the 15x6 works great on this combo, if you want a slower prop then you can run the 16x4W.
