Took the plane to the field today, actually at the field right now. 2nd flight success! 17x8 prop pulls the hangar 9 p-51 150 around good. I am going to try a 16x10 but probably after I get a few flights in with the 17x8. Saito 200ti ran great.

Bloody good news mate i'm jealous there's no other feeling like it and the 200ti to me sounds awesome even on the ground.Are you thinking about scale speeds..if it helps i fly a midget mustang and 115,it flys scale with a 15x8 and it's exceeding the believability speeds with a 14x10 mas q tip.

Barry thanks don't backtrack the pics or you'll end up watching a vid the indian motorcycle dealership made,i liked the titles better.

Thanks, and yes it is a great sounding engine and runs smooth. No really scale but not balls to the wall speed either. I like enough to do what I need and have a little left in the throttle. With the 17x8 I am flying around at 2 clicks above 1/2 throttle. So with the 17x8 I have some more juice left in the tank . I ordered a MAS 16x10 the other day and it should be in next week. I heard this will give it a little more speed than the 17x8. So I will try and see. Hopefully I will have a video up next week and will post.

So long as the burnt board has not been treated for 'white ants' richard,you'd be better off eating a crispy koala if it has.

Rowdy looking forward to the vid when you get round to posting one.Saito do their prop testing well and you get the prop figures they claim on the benchmark prop,usually an apc.I mostly run the biggest prop they recommend so you get middle eights rpm on the ground depending on pitch,and if your saito is in a slippery mustang they unload in the air quite a bit.I've flown my h9 taylorcraft a lot with a saito 182 twin and that pulled around 8500 on the ground with a mas 18x6 classic prop.It's not a slippery aeroplane but you should of heard that twin howl on the downwind leg at full throttle and the prop makes an awesome sound too.

ps popo you kicked your dog yet? i like sitting out the back reading a good book but it's hard with the magpies there,really inquisitive and they use the side of their beaks to flip the pages over for you or they jump on top of your workbag when you get home to see whats in there.It's about time to do some reloading

I luv my dog . Not like your little bitey yapper . I take my dog for walks daily , the issue is with little *****s of mutts like yours and those little fluffy mongrels . %99 of those will have a go at Barney and then the owner goes " oh pick on someone your own size like thats an excuse because their dogs smaller that makes it ok or its funny , then there's the excuse of he's never done that before . The pope sets them straight . I even kicked one stray staffy right in guts that launched into Barney , that surprised him and got his attention . I usually cross the street when I see them coming . I know what's gonna happen and I'm not even physcic .What a crock . That and people who leave their dogs turds on the footpath , really grind my gears .

Spoil them both Pope! I have a Chocolate Lab named Millie, she was the runt of the littler but there is not a better dog out there! I wouldn't take a thing for her or her sister Julia a Boxer/Beagle. Here is a picture of my two pups, both are 9 closing on 10 with Julia hitting 10 first in the fall. They are both pretty smart, Julia as you can tell in the first photo is reading my Father's Day card. She thought the huimor was a bit low brow.

Default Saito 91GK failed

The con rod in my Saito 91GK broke at the crankshaft. Fifty nine flights, about 5.5 hours runtime including break-in. Less than one month beyond warranty period. Oh well, already put a replacement engine in my plane.

The broken parts that came out of the engine are just below the glow plug in the picture showing the engine and parts.

I too would be interested in what fuel, it appears the engine is dry, no oil, the broken pieces are scored as if no oil. When pulling the back plate it should look like one of these inside.

Hey Pete, the gray finish on my new LASER 1.00, is that called matte or some other name, I had to rig up a special mount for the PSP, as you can see the mounting lugs are quite long. My initials are on the left one. Thanks, Dave

Running Cool Power 15% nitro, 18% oil. engine rpm on the ground around 9200 - 9800 depending on what prop I was using, mostly 9400 or so. Used an after-run oil, checked/oiled valves a couple times/year. Engine failed a month ago, just now took it apart. I have run 2s and gas engines for years. This is the first of a couple of 4s so I may have done something. There is always a possibility it got hot at some point over the last three years. In June 2016, I had a deadstick when an air baffle broke off so that was probably due to heat. Twelve flights since then with no engine problems.

Just interested in comments/questions others might have. Thanks to all for questions/suggestions.

Nice dogs there flyier , unfortunately Zac is no longer with us . He lasted a week shy of 16yrs .He was in great health until the day he died .We still miss him teriblely ,he was just a beautiful dog , Barney is the same just more spoilt . My daughter bugged us for 18mths after Zac died until we got Barney . He's now 4yrs old . Labs are the best . You don't have to worry about them biting little kids when you tie him up out the front of the shops . I come out and there's usually someone patting him , kids , adults who always have a story of when they had one . Barney follows the grandkids around like he's the baby sitter and flops down and sleeps for ages when they go . I have had labs all my life and wouldn't even think about another breed . cheers

I got my first Lab when I was 3 or 4 I love them too. Each one has it's own personality but they all are loyal, loving, and children can do no wrong.

I have cat, his name is "Skippy Doodles", he's a Blue Tip, he gets up in my lap and looks me in the eyes, a long time,, we call him Skippy because for the first year of his life he would play with his toy mice for 3, 4 or 5 hours, then sleep for 10 minutes and get up and play again for 3, 4 or 5 more hours, then do it all again, Skippy love's me, and I love him back, he's a good kitty cat, there ant no fleas on him, I never call him pu***

this is a old photo of him, he has a "M"

Jim my dog saito would love to play with your cat
