I had this rig on my Big Goldberg Tiger 120, it's been hibernating for about 3 years. I should pull the tank out and make provisions for the CH Ignition and fly it again.

Another judgement is it?

I guess "simplicity" is in the eye of the beholder
I used to tag the vent on the muffler tail too. Later I chose to go thru the muffler for several reasons. It is a simple, neat and very secure, low drag solution . The added heat further vaporizes the oil and it is released in the center of the exhaust stream, not first dispersed by prop blast. The end result is there is noticeably less oil on the plane after flight and the area covered is narrower. Still, very simple.
Lonnie makes great sense I hear you Lonnie.

Amazon has em for $111.00

Jim, I may have tried one of your tricks, I put this 82 carb on one of my Saito 56's, I put a fat O-ring in the groove, It may be a dismal failure but I'll find out.
I have to mount some tires now but will get to it later.

To the observant, there may be a bit more there than a "piece of pipe"

Yep, three screws, one adapter nut, one flange, two gaskets and one pipe of dubious usefulness.

Perhaps the cooling headers were intended to be used with these Saito cans? Sure looks like it.


They are listed together here for the FA82b:

Good thought, I wonder if that requires a flexible coupler. Or are they the almost invisible things.

I think that's them.

Also looks like it comes with tuning orifices of some kind

If that is correct why would you need the second inlet pipe to the main tube? I guess it could be for the crankcase vent but it would be the first time I saw such an accommodation. Granted one is a silencer and the other two header pipes. Saito could do us all a favor by documenting something.

And hopefully some constructive hints as to their use. In response to GlowGeek.

Not trying to be repetitive Okey.

Yet more
Actually, the pipe assembly also has a mating flange flange attached at one end and an O ring sealed reducing adapter on the other. "Dubious usefulness" to some but apparently they were useful to some folks, even without instructions.
Like I said earlier, pattern fliers used tuned four stroke pipes on YS. They use the same type headers and parts, supplied by Hatori.

Thanks, i think he sold it already, he didn't msg me, I think the 90T is borderline, it has a Gemini 120 and i don't really want to fly it with it.
on Power of my plane, i think the 100T would be better.

Dave, that sound's cool. you most likely will have to raise your idle a bit. but I'm betting it will work

I flew the P-40 with the smelly 2 Stroke in it Sunday, my friend flew it and he said it flew great, like a P-40. but he is a top dog pilot. I flew it and I almost crashed it 5 times . the wind blew it around like crazy, I couldn't even do a loop, as I went over the top the wind just blew it right off coarse. well I balanced it a bit "Tail light" for the first flights, I re-balanced it yesterday, I put a 1/4oz on the tail and the tail would not come down, it was way tail light, so I put another 1/4oz on the tail and it came down where it should be, I am now thinking I had the balance-point off a bit the first time I balanced it so it was much lighter in the tail than I thought it was. I'm betting it will now be more stable this weekend

BTW, with the OS 50 Hyper Heli engine and over sized muffler/APC 11X8 @ 12,000 peacked, 11,600 tuned for flight it was not super fast, but she sure would get a way from you quickly if you were not a head of it

That must have happened while i was going thru my vegan stage mate

I dunno jim, all you can see of the heli is the skids really and what looks like a silicone exhaust extender for a smelly OS two stroke, he should move that thing somewhere safer like the road outside his house.

Can anyone find a pic of the saito long 'header pipe' fitted to a plane, maybe a vid even ?

Ledesma,
I think I have a virgin 100 for you. Having the same old problem with sending PM.
Will try again today.

Better still would be getting less oil on the plane. That was the goal. Injecting the heated, vaporized oil in the center of the exhaust does a good job of that. Every bit as simple as well. Win- win

Hey, great news Jim. Glad you brought it home in one piece. PM'd you about CG.

Warbirds love Saitos.
