the chain is for the dead chevy’s I come across. The dust pan is for work silly. And yes the tail gate needs all the help it can get, the last truck I had, I put three tailgate’s on.
I guess Ford only wanted to get 100,000 miles out of each tailgate. Considering the last truck had 346,000 on it when I finally let her go boo-hoo

My 1995 F 150 tailgate only has 217,000 and is not broken in yet.

I just ran the rebuilt 50 with an APC 12 x 6, someone stated that I'd get 9,500 rpm and they were almost spot on. I did a hurrier job of running it because there is, (as my Dad would say) an ill northeast wind blowing in here and getting colder by the minute. I quickly got red knuckles holding the new tach. My ACE Tachmaster II was off by 350 rpm, I pointed it at the overhead lights and calibrated it to 3,600. It and the new Hangar 9 tach read the same at idle and top rpm. I like the new tach.

Saito 50 GK with new bearings and gaskets
Exhaust==latest revised muffler
Plug=====OS-f
Fuel=====Wildcat 10% with 18% full synthetic
Prop=====APC 12 x 6
Max rpm after 15 minute warm up==9,390
Idle======2,100

No burble, no hesitation, just clean linear acceleration from idle to full blatt. It's a keeper.

Yep,
You can see all kinds with chains at either end
At least you get to put some miles on them. No shame in wearing out a tailgate, getting some honest work done eh? Is that a Bus alongside your truck?

no buss wife’s camper
the tailgate on the 99 and 2001 rust out all in the there own. Wish they would have stayed with the heavy steel tailgate like the old ones. These tin tailgate’s don’t last.so by running a Saito engine on the back once in awhile helps to get them to last a little longer

Ah Hah!
Does she let you use it too?
So. I hope you are using a bit of Castor in that fuel! Sin-thetic only is a real moisture magnet

Yeah it was, and would have been quite a show had the battery in mine not failed.

That's a dandy. Thrust calculator says an APC 12x6 @ 9390 rpm @32°f is making 5.67 lbs. of thrust and .741 HP. There's a whole bunch of 40 size models that engine would pull.

Gary, the muffler and adaptor arrived, thank you good sir. The return address was covered by shipping labels. I tried to peel them back but the paper tore and I can't read the address. Please PM your address so I can refund your shipping cost.

Sbach went splat today. No signs of a stall on landing even after a headwind gust hit it but I was too slow on the throttle stick. Tore off the tail gear and gained a little negative camber on the mains. Heehee





Saito related: Of course it's unscathed, it's a Saito!

Thanks double G, I run it some more and maybe it'll limber up a few more rpm.

Alas. Another case of jumping ground dirt. Gotta watch getting to close to that stuff, it really gets jumpy when it's windy.
Sometimes even a Satio can't overcome it!

Glowgeek,, sorry for your loss, I have been there before

I see these guys out there with their big 100" span planes do these very slow, flat and tight circuits, I thought those are so cool. so I tried it with my son's 73" span Extra, drop the right wing, splat, busted it up good, destroyed it !

bought him a 75" span Cermark Edge 540, it's a very nice plane, well the next year he stopped flying because he found out what girls are for ! so I was out there flying his plane and I tried to do those slow, flat and tight circuits, drop the right wing and splat,,,

I fixed it up really good, went flying the next week.

well I was out there again flying around, I thought what the Hey, I will try to do those slow, flat and tight circuits again, drop the right wing and slat,,

I fixed it up good, again,, next week I went flying,,

I was out there flying around and thinking why, and I can't crash it again, then it came to me why the right wing was dropping. I asked but no one else at the field knew, but I figured it out, the answer was sO simple, it was a "Daa of course thought">>>>

I was turning into a tail wind too slow, lost lift,, never did that again, and never will !!

the edit> the morel to the story, is, it's not fun to lean things the hard way

some Saito FA100s F/S, for good prices

for a moment I thought it was brand new, but the P-nut is well used, I think the case is new, I doesn't look to have marks from mounting bolts ???

I'm chuffed (happy) did my first long trip in the toyota aurion this last week here's a pic of some genuine west aussie bug splatter,twenty bucks to the thread member who correctly names them all.Nearly 300hp on cruise control and 30mpg to boot the only thing it's missing is an ice cube maker,a serious problem.

Capt and others if you tow a model aircraft trailer the fine road grit/small stones and sometimes rocks that get picked up by the tyres and get flicked out the back will bounce off the front of your trailer back into the rear of your car/truck damaging the paintwork/protective coating.I liked gary's joke about the household brush and pan set.As someone here said it nearly cracked my eggshell.

Dave a good run on the fa50 and i'm glad you mentioned that long warm up period,usually at the field i find the first flight the engine sounds a little ragged but comes good thereafter.If you hand flicked it i hope you took bruce's advice and lightly sand the edges of the prop.

Thanks Pete, I cheated and used the mid power Sullivan, Hi Tork, I think it's called. My glow igniter was dead when I tried ti flip start it. I had charged it on a fancy Hobbico programmable charger, the problem is that if you don't remove it from charger when it's done it just goes dead again. It takes a 100 ma trickle to maintain it. I used the Sullivan and powered the glow plug with an ancient ACE Power Panel that has two plug capability. If I can play with it today I'm going experiment with a Turbo Header if I have one the correct size.

That Tokyoti is a nice lookin ride, lots of sensors on the front. I love the back on camera on the Cruze and the lights are fully automatic.

What's a turbo header? What are they supposed to do for a 4 stroke?

Saito 65 with Turbo Header
On a typical installation the Turbo Header gives you an extra 200 to 310 rpm and has really cool sound. http://www.rcspecialties.net/

I like the look, the sound doesn't really matter much too me. Are they unbaffled? Have you tested the rpm gains against their claims Dave?
