Welcome to club saito Dave. Really nice job on that 200R3 exhaust, looks very pro. That 200 doesn't waste any time winding up does it?

Yes,

That big tube, forward mounted exhaust ring looks great. I am really impressed. I just picked up a badly abused Saito 325 radial. Once up and running, a 5 hole version of your system may be in order.
Any video, with sound of that ring in flight?

Welcome Dave from another Dave, here's my sole radial, not even on a plane yet. These gents all cheered me on as I struggled to get the Keleo ring on it. The steel adapters misaligned it just enough to make it tough. We got it though.

Aw Dave,

It wasn't that bad, once you believed that it wasn't defective and the trick is juggling the adapters a bit

He thought it would look good in hot pink so he has donated it to me. The original builder alas is no longer with us but he did a good job of assembly. What do you think? I wanted something with not cowling to show of the Saito.

Guess I'm just not old enough to enjoy a Pete-n-Poke or any slow flyer. If my stomach doesn't have butterflies on the way to the field and my knees aren't knocking together after a snap roll to knife edge on the the deck I quickly lose interest. Give me a few more years and a few cratered composite arfs and I'll get there.....

Crunchy, I like the Pink engine, it would look great on an open cowl bird. Make sure whatever plane you put it in overpowers the heck out of it. No need for a sissy pink engine; might as well be bad to the bone!

Must be getting old, snap roll to knife edge on the deck with a toy airplane seems a bit boring.
Oh yea, pink is one exciting, fast color!

that sounds awesome
the 56 should give that plane impressive power should be fun.

Personally I fly a combination of airplanes I start with the jacked up show plane doing snaps, rolls and what ever else I can get a way with three or 4 feet off the deck. then I calm down and fly the occasional trainer or slow poke type airplane just to enjoy flying.

Those 3D foamies make snaps, rolls, flying inverted 2 feet off the deck a piece of cake.

Well, at least gluing them back together is a piece of cake.

The part the Crunch isn't mentioning, and the reason Crunch is his nick, is because usually after the 3rd or 4th flight there isn't much left of his "fast" planes to fly. Hell he even scared his pilot so bad at the SIG flyin that he leaped out of the plane, never to be seen again.

Crunch does crash he just frees up hanger space for the next airplane! I was looking at those panthers Glowgeek but I was holding out until I can hit a couple of second hand stores. I was thinking I saw a PP pilot sitting on a plane in one of them.

Default What is the inside diameter of collet in SAI5027


I need some help

Does anyone know the length/height and inside diameter of the Tapered Collet on SAI5027.
Also what is the outside diameter of the drive flange?
SAI5027 is for Saito 50, 56

Anyone have one laying around?

Thank you,

SNAP! how did you know i was that good?

Dave (hobbsy) we are very lucky to be tuning and flying saito engines for fun and most of us can snap roll anything from a lightweight foamie to a scratch built b25 twin and then roll into a knifedge inches off the deck directly after takeoff. My question is...do you think we should lay off the grits a bit ?

Prop is a Mejzlik 18x6, current fuel is Graupner SX10.

Some numbers: on Optifuel 20% nitro it idles at 1000 and spins the 18x6 to 8700 on the ground
on the current fuel (Graupner SX10, 10% nitro, 12% oil) it idles at 1200 and revs to 8500

I prefer flying with the SX10 as there is less of a smoke trail and the engine runs much longer on a tank of fuel. The engine has about 20 liters of fuel through it now and runs like a champ. I broke it in on 20/20 and an APC 16x8 fand used the 20/20 for the first 10 liters.
Cheers,
Dave

I cant post pictures or URLs until I have 10 posts, so youll have to copy and paste. sorry
