Good to get on your favourite forum after work and have a good belly laugh now and then,before getting back to saito's.If we don't one of the mods will(in your best gomer pyle voice)say that 'the chainsaws gettin started right now and you woodpeckers shure are in trouble...'

Okc if you are flying big models with a saito engine and wooden prop then generally speaking you can take off,land and taxi with the best of them so a prop strike is a rare occurance instead of a weekly event when you are learning on smaller models with say a 62 in it.I'd argue that a woodgrain(if that's your fancy)heavier plastic prop is a big advantage at idle for any engine under a saito 100.Most important is their ability to survive prop strike late in the takeoff run,specially on a test flight where pitch/cg and elevator effectiveness is unknown.My first test flight with the cmpro midget mustang i used a mas classic 15x8,towards the end of the takeoff run it was at full throttle and nosed over grinding half the white prop tips off,i heard and saw it,too late to stop.As i'd never flown it yet everything seemed normal and a successful ten minute flight after trimming was completed,the 115 just sounds and looks so awesome in that aeroplane,i was gobsmacked.

As an aside how are you guys in the USA dealing with this need to register your models with the FAA. The reason why I ask is because our equivalent CASA is looking into the same thing

The FAA plan is to register modelers rather than models.

Still lots of unanswered questions........

Please, let's not get into that issue here. It wastes a lot of posts, even worse than motorcycles!

Oh Man, I almost forgot, Saitos look like this.

Fly, you left off number 11, just another overzealous bunch of big brothers.

Thankyou i remember a while back you were interested in wood veneer? or wooden four valve old radios and things were you doing the timber finish up or polishing them?

Long weekend over here so time to fit some bike riding in,and some saito flying,what about you guys.

Unless my club requires us to register, which I doubt since we are way too laid back, and a bunch of old dudes, I will not be registering. I will wait out the AMA and the passing of the revised bill.


Pope, maybe a little stiff, but never limp after a 2 week splinter.

Hi Dave, Thanks for the head's up; I thought it about time for that event. It was my favorite swap meet and I am sorry I will miss it this year. I now have Gary's Saito .56, I plan to fly it on an original Kadet Mkl/ll.
If you see Gary, say hi, maybe you will see his new 'Vette.
Very best regards to you and yours. Ihope to see you later in the spring.

Sincerely, Richard

Richard, I just got back, the event was poorly attended by sellers and even more poorly attended by shoppers. There was not a single Saito for sale there. I did pick up a little used Enya .80. I did not see a single person that I new and that's rare for me.

Pete, no, that had to be someone else if you had a veneer discussion, but I am interested in that. I'm more interested now that I've seen your props. Is that enamel paint?

Yes, I did collect plastic tube (valve) radios, and sometimes wood if it was nice enough. My last batch was several years ago when I got a mint condition Roebuck's AM & shortwave tabletop "morale" radio. Morale radios were those made during the war for soldiers stationed way out from civilization, and meant to be cheap enough to afford. They did make a few for civilians, like this one. I'm trying to remember the ac to dc power scheme, but I think they skipped transformers to cut costs.
