For the record, I wasn't talking about Callie I was talking about our friends at USPS

She mailed them exactly when she said, it took nearly 3 weeks for it to get to me via the mail.

At least it showed up! I sent a guy a payment that never arrived even after seeing it in Informed Delivery. I resent it and 2 months later the first payment show up here as undeliverable.

I've used Callie Graphics on multipke planes. I love her work and she is always on time with her orders. Great vinyl stickers!

Love my Saito 4 strokes. I have a 62b, 82b, and a FA 100. I'll be adding a radial down the line. Probably a 60r.

Here is an early Saito 120 beautified by KMOT, I love when I stumble across these.

It's a Fathead 120.

So show your wife (respectfully sometimes known as the handbrake down under) this old irish joke. You have a place in washington called walla walla? you'll fit right in down under, just up the road is a place called muckinbudin and a suburb here in perth is called innaloo...yes, really

ps meeting everyone here might be a bad idea BLW used to talk to dave on the phone, said he was stubborn

I miss ole Pete, he seems to have vanished, a shame. Always good for a chuckle.

In case anyone didn't know, RCBearings.com is going out of business and most Saito bearing sets are at cost. Most around $1.39.

Yessir we bought a pile, heading back for more.
Good to have experienced your service and low prices.

Smile Saito f 325r d

Greetings,
I was a member some years ago and when my computer fried I never updated. I have a question or two.
When my father passed, I took care of his estate and he had this F325 in his shop. I'm not much of an RC guy yet when I was it had been cars only. I had put it on EBAY and even here on the RC classifieds and was met with low ballers and 3 individuals off EBAY who attempted to commit fraud. I hate EBAY.

I'm thinking of sending it to horizon Hobby for a complete inspection and compression check and a quote to do any work needed to be completed.
Questions are, is it worth it? Do people still use the four stroke 325 450? Preowned Value?

I know it has never been in a plane of his, and the story is he did some work for a friend and kept the engine as collateral. The guy ended up giving it to him, I'm assuming, second hand info from my sis.

I'll post pictures later today, yet it doesn't have the wiring harness nor fuel tubes. I am wanting to get it out of my way yet do not want to give it away. Any guidance and suggestions would be gratefully welcomed.

Thank you

Welcome back Deep, here is a review by Clarence Lee, it'll help you a lot.: https://sceptreflight.com/Model%20En...0FA-325R5.html

A second review by a not as thorough guy: https://sceptreflight.com/Model%20En...20%282%29.html

It's certainly a great looking engine.

If I decide he needs a co-pilot I can always use Calvin.

Pretty certain it would fly more often and suffer fewer crashes with Calvin doing the pilot duty.

Thanks.
It is cool piece a machinery for sure, I have no use for it though: Thing is heavy, so I looked up one of the planes that has it for its power plant. Damn the planes have gotten huge! I did have a fleeting moment of turning it into a home defense Drone, ha!
