Dave, it did the same thing to me a few days ago and now it passwords me! I've never had to give my password just to delete a post or do moderator functions. I had to restart my browser and it began working at some point later. I forget. It may have been one of the early bugs they are talking about being fixed now.

The only bug I would like right now requires a clip and a lighter.





OK, Lets see if this one posts twice!


BTW, did y'all know there are over 2 million view to this thread?

I know what you mean

Wasp buy the engine you want for the p40 i can tell you what a 115 will do in a cmpro midget mustang which weighs the same as your p40 but has a shorter 55" wingspan.It's very quick with an mas 14x10 q tip but a 15x8 mas with the white tips flys it at scale speeds and looks better,and it will rip that prop in a shallow dive,sounds neat on the ground as it goes past.What more could you want?

popo you owe the site two bucks now

Take a day off dave i did,well it was still work related.Went inland from where your rellies live here to york for the m/c show.Thousands of bikers for such a small state as ours,ran into an old mate steve who's harley is older than he is.He'd just rebuilt it and would'nt ride up with the boys in case he had engine problems and slowed the group down,who said aussies ain't considerate and a harley rider to boot.

Okc do you know why the call computer glitches bugs has anybody heard that story...

Yes, it goes back to the old analog computer back in the days when tubes not transistors ruled the world when a big mainframe (which had less computer horse power than your phone) malfunction. When they opened it up and got inside the machine they discovered the problem was a bug (a beetle I think) got in the machine and shorted a connection out. Since that time computer glitches were know as bugs. Now do you know the difference between a bug and a feature?

And to think, it was a Navy Rear Admiral who headed all that and found the "bug".

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grace_Hopper

OK, here it is, it was her associates who found it.

While she was working on a Mark II Computer at a US Navy research lab in Dahlgren, Virginia in 1947, her associates discovered a moth stuck in a relay impeding its operation. While neither Hopper nor her crew mentioned the phrase "debugging" in their logs, the case was held as an instance of literal "debugging", perhaps the first in history. The term bug had been in use for many years in engineering.[60]
[61] The remains of the moth can be found in the group's log book at the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of American History in Washington, D.C.

You can say that again!! just kidding.What size prop will you run on what engine for the p40? the cmpro midget mustang has a short undercarriage but still clears a mas 15x8 easily although i gave it to much throttle on the test flight takeoff and apart from a huge swing to the left it nosed over a bit too far and ground the white tips half off the prop,those mas props can take a beating.It still flew well and i learned a lesson on throttle and rudder control.

Okc what is a 'bug with a feature' like a cockroach with racing stripes or what?

""what size prop""

well if I buy the Satio 125 I was thinking a 15" 3 Blades,

and if I buy the 115 I was thinking a 14" 3 Blades,

the 125 would be super neat, but I am wondering if it's just way to much power

I was thinking going Gas for a long time now, but Glow is just so easy, and lighter

to bad Saito didn't make a V-twin 120, I would have bought it already LOL,, I would like something different

Jim

If they did I dont think they do anymore . Whats the issue with them not being sold in the USA ? Jon , the guy who puts them together is more than helpful . I can attest to that , I annoyed the crappper out of him with questions before I finally pulled the trigger on mine . I have yet to hear a bad word about them and if u wont get one cause its not sold in the USA u might be missing out on one of rc's gems . I would love a little 30 or 40 laser . Cant help but dream .

Popo there should be a fifty buck surcharge if your gonna rattle on all day about lasers,this is a saito thread with the odd mention of motorcycles and guns,your per word rate should go up too pm me your credit card details chicken and i'll pass them on...afterwards.

Jim the saito 100 inline might do it.The three blade props you mention are too big for those 115 and 125 engines i think you go down two sizes in dia if you step up to a 3 blade.I don't use three bladers but dave does you could check with him?

This would be your nearest and dearest fa 125 you were so happy with a few pages ago i assume.How could you possibly offer that sacred engine to me when you know what the dogs going to do to it in the back yard.He gets pretty fit but ends up covered from head to toe in dirt.It's ok to send the card details tho.

BTW, those engines will twist up a 3 blade prop because you use a lower pitch
