I am building a plane with an inverted Saito 72 and i will need a onboard glow driver. I have never used one before and just wondering if anyone has a link to one that would work for my setup.

I have used the type that you simply mount the opposite end at a convenient place where you can attach your glow driver when starting. It was fairly simple since I was able to do it.

It is a bit like Swiss German though the Germans mostly cannot under stand Swiss German and most English speakers can understand us eventually with a bit of hand waving and.

I was in Switzerland twice on vacation from Germany. That is funny you mention Swiss German. I remember it. Also, when I went to the Paris Airshow the French refused to speak to me if I spoke German, but if I switched to English they suddenly became friendly and gave me service when ordering food, etc.

FNQFlyer- I don't think we have a SAM chapter and I'll check. We have almost no area to fly that doesn't have hills and trees. The university rocket club drives about 90 minutes to use an area on Saturdays.

BLW SAM Americia has an excellent website that list all the SAM chapters world wide so that should be your first point of reference. Which state do you live in, don't recognise the AL thingy. And I am not a happy person, reason G20. All sorts of restrictions and advisories. While we are outside the exclusion zone (just) we are not far from a RAAF base and as they say one has to be able to prove ones bonafides while all this garbage is going on. Russian war ships cruising down the Barrier Reef(bet they don't pay the taxes most visitors to the reef do) and the possibility of experiencing a "latex intrusion" if I meet up with some of the "over anxious" little men in black turns me right off so I'll spend the week dodging "jobs around the house" and hide either in the shed or around at my mates place. One good thing though I got to see an Osprey go through its paces, very interesting a/c.

That wouldn't work so well in Quebec.

Nor in Monaco - it seems that if they hear English or an English accent while trying to speak French, they automatically assume that you are British and fob you off pretty quickly.

As soon as they found out I was Australian, all was forgiven.

Go figure...

So, why is it when I click the link in the email for new posts it takes me to august 2013? Always to the post of a test picture of a broken saito.

What browser are you using? I have Firefox with the Saito forum set in Favorites. I have to update the page number regularly so it goes to the newest page when I hit the link in Emails.

Not sure if IE works the same.

Hey guys excuse me for a simple question that I asked in a few post above, but I am mounting a Saito 91 and the fuel tank centerline is going to be at least 1/2" (13mm) below the carb center. Will this be okay?

Should be fine, set the needles with the tank half full and you should be good to go.

I have the .80 mounted on the Alpha, it balances perfectly with no batteries in it yet. I can get the ignition battery in beside the tank, I'll place the receiver battery as needed. Not comfortable with the sensor lead sharing the grommet with the spark plug wire. I'm thinking on that before I do anything with it. The ignition switch will have to go either on the windshield or the top of the fuse, no wood on the sides in the front.

Chrome. If I close the page and click the link in the email again it takes me to the correct post. Only happens occasionally, but its always to the same post.

If you edit the URL and change the page number to 999 (or 9999 etc. for longer threads), the link should aways open on the last page.

Like this: "http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/glow-engines-114/3306814-welcome-club-saito-9999.html"

Just put another 20 minuets on my .62GK, probably have about 2 hours now total.
Never a dead stick or a hiccup.

Would you need to run some sort of bearing up in the nose if you were to extend the prop shaft by around 2" on one of these things?

Looks like Saito to add another (4th) gas radial to product line. This is super small

I had 2 years of French in school and have forgotten all of it. I remember some German though. For Quebec I also know how to point and hold up how many fingers, etc like I did in S. Korea.

Yes, the Russian ship activity is getting reported a little over here. I had forgotten about the tax and I bet you are right about them skipping out on the taxes, We sure paid big time a few years ago, didn't we!

AL is for Alabama. I'm in the east central part. It does get a little bit flatter about 1 1/2 hours north of us, but nothing you would like yourself. I lived in Kansas but the wind would keep you from flying most of the year. I also lived in Colorado and that would have been perfect for SAM clubs.
