The flex pipes tend to crack real easy

I just picked up a new saito 80..Well it is a few years old but never ran. I am going to put this on a goldberg cub sometime this summer..There was no muffler with it. I was thinging od going a 90 deg adapter and flex pipe..Any ideas on that? Would it be nasty loud or sound ok?
The flex pipe is more restrictive than you might think. The ribs reduce the sound quite a bit. Often, the engine's performance is reduced as well.

Right Angle Adapter for Saito FA80

You might want to consider a TurboHeader instead of the flex pipe. I have three of them. They sound great, they are more durable and lighter (I think) than a 90 degree adapter and a flex pipe. You will most likely get a modest performance boost as well! The price of the TH might be a little bit higher than the flex pipe and adapter, but not that much.

The APC 14-6 is the standard sport prop for the Saito 82

Hello,like any other pipe that is mounted thoughtfully and carefully they mostly don't crack.With the saito flex pipe tho i've noticed some black flakey bits in the fuel tank when i removed it.Are they powder coated,dipped or anodized do you think?

That's great!..can you recommend an australian dealer so all the southern hemisphere readers of this forum can actually buy some of them?

A few cline or ironbay regulaters would not go astray either...is this a similar theme/promotion scheme re elvis never touring outside the states when he was alive

The 45 MKII has a different carb mount than the 45S. You could use a 50 back plate on the 45S

Has anyone posted a link or information on the lbs of thrust on a .91 with the recommended props?
I thought I saw it somewhere but 550+ pages is a lot of info to go through.
Thanks, Tim

Hi, I am plan building a monocoupe 90a model and I am trying to decide what to power it with. Plans say it is .30 to .45 size, but of course I am going to put a saito in it so I was considering something like a saito 56. Lately though I have been looking at the 60 twin which would be kind of neat. If I were to get the 60 twin, what size tank should I think about using?


thanks, David G.

The 60T has about the power of a 40 single cylinder four stroke. You run a 11-6 or 12-5 prop

Use at least a 8 oz tank.

where do you fly at around Auburn?

I actually am not really flying in auburn anymore I just transfered to a diffrent school. I still make trips to auburn and fly though because they have one of the best feilds around. It is about a 30 to 35 minute drive from downtown auburn going south and turning on I think us 80. they have a little blog websight at: http://www.auburnrc.blogspot.com/ It is a big field with a grass runway and a little pond in the back. The guy that actually owns the field has a full size cessna 180 he flies in and out of that field so the grass is almost always cut down.

Then it is time to start a new club! BTDT when nothing was available. If I had more energy, I would do that here myself. Driving any more than ten or twelve miles to fly bugs me. I used to drive 35 miles when I joined my first club after the USAF. By the time you got there in the evening after working day shift you were lucky if you had time for more than three flights. And that was hurring all the while and grabbing a hamburger on the drive to the field.

Our local clubs are fantastic and they are populated with super people, so that isn't the reason that I would like a place to fly that is closer. Besides, I would join both of them anyway just for the camaraderie, etc. In NJ we had a program named "Green Acres" which allocated government owned parcels of land to organized/incorporated clubs of all kinds. I haven't been able to find something similar in Georgia as yet. If anyone knows of such a program, I would really appreciate receiving the information. Who knows, the good news just might give me enough energy to get the ball rolling.

Ed, can you give a little more info on the NJ Green acres program?

Still stuck here in Jersey and I'm afraid for quite a while to come.
Fields are almost impossible top find anymore that are less than 35-50 miles away.

If you could, PM it so as not to clog the thread

Thnx

Gadsden has a field SW of town that is South of I59 and North of the river and West of the airport
http://www.modelaircraft.org/clubdetails.aspx?club=1985

Anniston has a field that is across I20 from the Talladega race track
http://www.modelaircraft.org/clubdetails.aspx?club=1018

I know these are on the opposite side of the metropolis from Jacksonville though.

If anyone knows if there's a site that shows power to weight ratios of Saitos or something similar please let me know.

Thanks, Tim

It doesn't have power in terms of pounds of thrust.
