Mode 2 is also how real airplanes and helicopters are set up. The stick controls bank and pitch.
and another thing,,, some one had the thought, gee, 90% of people are "right Handed", and so they have more coordination with their right hand, sOooooo it would be wiser to fly Cyclic with their right hand, so mode 2 was born

Will that Satio .56 work good on a Space Walker with 63 inch span. I got a new .56 to try. Thanks, John

John, the .56 flies an RCM 40 with ease, it should fly the Space Walker at half throttle or less. I use a Graupner 12x6 or a Bolly 12.5x6. I have started an engine, prop, fuel and rpm chart in NoteBook, I haven't recorded the .56 yet.

Nice one Dan, is it from your area?

Hey Cap, the .56 is one of those, (just right in every way) engines, what is final compression ratio on your 1.80. I have a C&H Ignition on my high compression, (11.24 to 1) 1.50. Thanks, Dave

i don’t know for sure you will have to ask the Srtelamaster150 the numbers. but I took .032 off the case and toched the value pockets a little and i can turn a 16X12 at 7800.
I need to try a 16X10. I world love to put this in my GeeBee to get some speed out of it. If it clears off today i’m going to give it a go.

Thanks for the reply. I did want to place that engine on the Space Walker. Looks like it will be the best choice. That Buck that was in the photo sure was a nice fat one with a nice rack. I do not hunt anymore, that being out in the cold kills me...like I ache too much in cold weather. Going to Florida soon....YAH MAN !!!!

Ignition is cool you can set a good idle and you can just shut it of.

A few years ago, I installed CDI on Saito 220.
They are the best I made on that engine, very pleased.
less fuel consumption, no oil on airplane.
I now have 10% oil can probably go down to 8%

In Europe, they are also Morrismini, which has CDI
You have probably seen his website if not here it comes.

acdii- shipping from England is usually cheaper than our USPS. It makes up for the slightly higher prices. They drop the VAT if you mention it's for the U.S. That helps a lot. The only downside is it takes a bit longer to get here. My experiences from England has always been good with top notch service. Something was late once and they actually paid to ship it overnight to me from England and it did arrive the next day. I couldn't believe it. England is a good place to shop.

Like this one, I don't have enough time on it to compare to a Saito 1.00, that little muffler does have a nice deep sound.

I saw one some years back and was underwhelmed.
