Tempting but I have got the 20 years to serve for bank robbery and it interferes with my build time!

I see somebody bought the $12 Saito tappets Iinked above from eBay.

Hope nobody is going to jail over that!

watch how long it takes to go around and open each valve at idle LOL

BTW, if I had one of these engines, I would let it sleep in my bed.

Lonnie, here is the digital sealing iron we discussed, the Brand name is O'Skool, they are 63 buck and Amazon sells lots of them, they are popular.

Mambo tail feathers, the control rods are in place, so I can sheet the top and bottom of the fuselage.
Here ya go,

The FA-30SH Special will begin life by hauling a Great Planes kit-built "Big Stik 20" over the club field. The FA-40A will wake up on the nose of a scratch built Sr Kadet. I will be leaving that one up at my "private" field in Marlette Michigan.
Plan to put quite a few lightening holes in the Big Stick fuselage before stretching the Coverite Mica Film covering on both planes.

Big Stik 20

Kadet Senior, Pure 3 channel

Oh yeah!

I bet you will. A beautiful sight that one is too.
Swing it around to about a 45 degree heading sounds about right. Now, if only Dave picked up a license we could have quite a ball this winter.

you guys, you know, in one of his movies John Wayne said "Mr., that better be a Saito that you are pulling out of that holster or your flight is going to be re-al short".

If there were a kit, this would be a beautiful build and Saito triple project.


Wolf Samsom, what a beauty. A ride for a Graupner Grey 3 blade.

Hard to improve the "mystery ship" racer with a second wing lol. Acrobatic racer lol?
The bipe looks more like a "Muscle Bipe" maybe?

this just goes to show, you don't need a 700HP engine in your Vett. all you need is 660cc. about 33HP
