Cruising speed between 115 and 150 kph.
Endurance of up to 18 hours.
Saito garbage can mufflers visible on either side of cowl, engine seems to have a very soft rubber mounting and is self starting.
Black coarse pitch prop appears to be approx 14 to 16 inch dia.

Picture of crashed drone without cowl shows petrol Saito flat twin with small oil hole drilled in pushrod covers??
Anyone like to guess how big the twin is and who supplied the hundreds of engines, may even be thousands, good business for the supplier.
Should be a Chinese ARF version offered any day now.

War-repair is way different from a "ballroom-repair for look nice".
As long as it will do the next job/ mission, it´s good enough.
Same as I would do in the club field in order to have one more flight for the day.

Packing tape, more than a few of my models have been temporarily repaired that way. Some of them have been flying that way for years.

anyone ever heard of "Precise brand Tooling" I am looking for a new 1/2" drill chuck for my lathe's tail stock. I feel I don't need a $100 or $300 chuck. don't need a $600 chuck ether LOL. and I sure do not want a $18 chuck. the brands with the big names do not show a 1/2" chuck in the listings in the $60 price range. but I found this "Precise brand". the description builds it up pretty good. it's made in Taiwan. I guess I should say "at least it's not made in China.

Your questions have been answered on the RCG thread.

It means your engine is one from a batch of FA-150 stamped "C" . The batches are sequentially tagged in alphabetical order. An engine stamped "B" would have been made earlier, an engine marked "D" would be from a later batch. Every replacement case I have seen has had no letter stamped on the lug.

Hope this helps.

thanks. Waned to get some extra parts and the shop said the “C” was a designator and parts had to have the C nomenclature to work… makes no sense to me..

I said it before, and I say it again. "there is a lot of nice people on the Saito page"

looky what I have here. boy does this thing turn super smooth. German made. it's in beautiful shape. it seems to be never used. I'm sure I can get the mark off it with Scotchbright.

thank you so much Bill!
Jim

That is an absolute classic, high precision chuck!

LOL, almost shameful to see it put to use as a tailstock chuck
