hummm, you know you could put those Robart Robo Struts on your mustang, I think that would look cool like that with no pants,,, wheel pants I mean,,
it could be done on the Ryan too

At this point in my life I have to make a choice, either leave my saitos in a box or mount them on planes I purchased and fly fly fly. I simply don't have time to build if I want to fly all my saitos alot, which I do.

you know I saw an older gentleman crash his newly built "kit built" plane on the first flight, on the very first circuit,, he chocked up, he just about cried. if it was an ARF he would have just kicked the plane and say "never again" when walking up to it LOL

My builds are my LT-40, which gets the most air time, two Cubs, 4*120 which I might sell to the first person to hand over $300, a 4*60 that Crunch sent me so I could build one with Retracts, and the retracts failed before it even got started, and the Liberty Sport which just needs the N struts finished to be fully ready to maiden. Out of all of them, 7 are Saito powered, the ones not Saito are either electric or 2 stroke gas, the only non saito glow is in the Liberty Sport, it has the YS 63z.

I also have several carcasses in various states of construction, .60 P-51, .60 Corsair, 101" Ziroli B-25, SIG Citabria(which is also Saito powered), and a CG Chipmunk that needs to be recovered. I also have a SIG 4*20 and LT-20 that were started, but the builders lost interest. The B-25 will be powered with a pair of Saito FG-30, but haven't selected power for the Corsair or P-51 yet. I have a Ziroli P-61 kit waiting on a shelf that will get a pair of NGH 38CC 4 stroke gas.

I had flown an OS 52 in the LT-40, but replaced it with the Saito FG-11, more reliable power. Once the Liberty Sport is done, it will be my only non Saito Glow powered plane.
is that all ??

The little Saito 30 flies the LT 25 as if born to it.

RIIGHT Mike! LOL I like to think I have a lot, then I see what some others have and think, when the hell does anyone have THAT much time! LOL

I do have a bunch pf plans though, B-25 of a larger scale, B-17 from Jan Hermkins, Don Smith B-29, a large scale Corsair, and a few others. I would like to find a full set of Top Flight GS P-51 plans though. I have the PDF manuals and parts sheets, but without plans, can't verify the scale.

Well ok here is a taste. Of fly able planes two Astro hogs. One with a Saito 100 other with a Saito 72. Toube with a OS.90 a Gee Bee with a Irvine150. 168” Rascel with a 3W 120cc. Seagull Muile with a Saito 100. Senior with a Saito 65. Senior with a Saito 40. Senior with an Electric. a Trainer with us Saito 50. 1/4 Clipped wing Cub with. Saito 180. Seagulls edge 540 with a Weber 120. Mini Sukoy with electric.
1/2 A racer with electric. Senior Tellamaster with a Saito 120. Balsa USA stick with a magnum 40. A ugly stick with a Enya 35. A whirlwind ARF with a magnum 46.
Then I have a pile of bones and another pile of kits.
then there’s a stack of Saito’s that I could never build enough planes for.
shoot I forgot about the 11’ senior with a DLE 55.

yellow, now are you talking about the one that is built ? and, is my K&B 100Aro engine to much power for a Hog, it only weighs like 1.6oz more than my OS 61FX (both engines with mufflers).it's beautiful

Mine was built 1997 or 1998 and had a OS 26 four stroke/cycle. I always wished that I had waited and used the Saito instead. Still, a very nice flying plane.

Just got done overhauling and selling one of those OS FS26s engines. Wicked little engine. It shocked me.
