I have 15 x 7 and 13 x 8 3b props on my shelf. Not a prop hoarder like some around here are! LOL Where they came from? not sure, but I think one of them was off my FA-100 GK when I bought it at a swap. I will need to match the hub up to it to know, if I can find it. Now to go and find me some 3010 Futaba servos, running low.

Your fa100 should turn a 13x8 3b at around 9000 richened for flight. 9.36 lbs of thrust, 59.1 mph.

The thrust number is real but the speed is dependant on how much drag your plane has. If it has a lot of drag it may not reach 59.1 mph. If it's a slicker plane the prop will unload more, your engine rpm will increase and so it will likely go faster than 59.1.

I think the 100 will be good. is that a TF Corsair ? there is a U Tube review about the TF Corsair (ARF) with an OS 95V on it and it flew very well, but I don't think they said what percentage of Nitro was used, it could have been 30% for all we know. then there was that U Tube video of the Spitfire I posted a few times with the Saito 100 iT , that plane was fast, but again we don't know what percentage the fuel was used

According to the performance data from many individuals a saito fa91 will beat the pants off an os 95v. Good news for saitoholics

He lives fairly close to me. I need to see if I can find his phone number, he probably doesn't check in here regularly.

I could get it in Randolph, but I don't need an entire quart, not at $35 plus shipping.

I mention Brodak because they have the 4 oz bottle on sale for $4.49 and the 16 oz tin for $8.49. The down side is their minimum shipping is like $12.

I had a $25 gift certificate I had to use with SIG before it expired, or I would have shopped elsewhere. This is not the SIG I used to know, so no idea what is going on over there, but it's not looking good.

Yeah, Sig is not what it used to be. They used to keep a lot more old kit parts for sale and keep their website updated regularly. I ordered sig castor (Dave's favorite exopy) that showed as "in stock" but it wasn't. They did however send me an email notifying me of the estimated shipping date, kudos for that.

BTW, the estimated ship date was right on the money.

acdii, did they send you an email?
