All in one small , light package, as originally concieved. I have found the system quite practical. Built around 1988
This is what I haul to the field and the flight line. No wheels,, light in weight, no fuel soaking, no extra bulk. There is a hefty AGM 12AH battery in the short side, below the mini glow panel. The two glow drivers are more than enough for a day or week end of flying, even with twins. My starters are powered with self contained, relay switched LiPo packs. The whole package has about the same footprint as a 1 gallon plastic jug. Weight is under 15 pounds. I secure the flightbox with a cargo hook restraint at the rear of my small SUV.. I also have a simple lead to plug into the cars electrical system that keeps the built in battery topped off and ready to use. I put this package in the car at the first flying day and it stays there all season.

The Sullivan will start up to a 91 easily and the geared starter, made from an electric scooter motor will start an 85cc gasser plus.

Glowgeek;

At least the handle is WOOD Made from a piece of good old Michigan Rock Maple that was cut in my back yard. You could easily fit TWO of these behind your passenger seat and have room to spare
Practicality was job one...

Yep, that's the one I was referring to. Just a lttle bigger on the compartment side and it would meet all my needs. If those ever hit the market they'd sell like hotcakes!

Lonnie, I received the Carb today, thank you, but you didn't have to pay back the shipping, so I thank you for that too,


you know I still have that video of that Spitfire with the 100 Inline Twin in my head, and knowing it must weigh just over 10 pounds, and how fast it was and how well it climbed out with the 100iT, so I am now actually considering about putting my 82 in the mustang and the 100 in the VQ P-40.
I figured the Mustang would only do around 85, 90 with the 100, but as you and the others say it should do around 110, even 80 would be enough for what I was looking for.

new video I found,

hey guys, see how this Spitfire jumps off the ground with the Saito FA100 in it, my VQ P-40 is lighter than the H9 Spitfire and should come in right at 10 pounds, I don't think it really needs my 115 in it

Looks like that fellow is not interested in scale-like flying in the least!


Hey Dave, made it

The folks who bought the house dropped it off tonight.
Looks good, thank you. When I get in the mood I will make some more straight pipes up as well.

here's the VQ Mig 3, a .46 size plane (as they call it) with a 62" span and the Sato 82 mounted in it, a very good match,,
ARF so it's not so scale. according to the numbers it's some 2 pounds lighter than my P-40, but we can't always trust numbers can we,, according to VQ's site my P-40 should come in at 8 pounds on the heavy side, I don't believe it, I'm betting more like10 pounds.


the plane,
MIG3 - VINH QUANG RC MODELS


here is a Top Flight P-40 with the Saito 100 Inline Twin. the engine is a good match for this plane. from every post I have read the Top Flight P-40 should weigh over 12 pounds with the Saito 100 Inline Twin

I have been trying to find a home for the 65 big carb and I kinda like that VQ Dago Red. It should be fast with a 12-10 prop.

Crunchy, depends on what you consider fast. My 6.5 lb. H9 P51 with an FA62 does around 60 mph with an apc 12x7. A 12x10 might bring it up to around 70 mph but not without severly compromising thrust ie long roll outs on takeoffs and lack of pulling power for even the most basic aerobatics. At some point the airframe drag and flight characteristics dictate maximum useable prop pitch on any given airframe/engine combo.

The Dago Red is a little slicker airframe than my H9 P51 so you may get some decent speed with a 12x7 or 8 without sacrificing too much. Just my thoughts.

Well
my world modelís .46 P51 was clocked at 110mph with a Rossi 60 and a 13-6.
I think I should be able to get around the same numbers with a 12-10 and my 65 with big carb if I can turn that at 10,000 in the air.

Ah ha!

They try to keep you Saito worshipers in total darkness I see! Not an unheard of tactic among the charismatic religions.
I know when I mention those letters, the Saints and Bishops of ancient Saitoism howl out loud and cry for my banishment from their places of worship, or worse .


That explains a lot

Presently looking for a new or nearly new OS-95V. Have any of several Saitos of similar value to choose from. Perhaps a new in box FA-91 or a very nice,but used Saito FA-125?

Only thing I have is a used 90 2 stroke. It's an OS, but nothing I would ever use.

Sure,
Having experience with them leads to actually appreciating the brands that Saitoist believers fear

I think they now have group therapy for that.
