I agree with sigman,do you have any more audio?? it's inspired me to build my twin.
Here's another one of her taking off. Slowly advance to full throttle, lift off, climb out, throttle back, flaps up, gear up, back in power a little. Hope you enjoy it.

Ram,

I sure would like to hear your P-38 with a couple of TurboHeaders. Drop me an email and let's talk.

Jim
Email sent. Intriguing.

Hi All,

I was in the hobby pretty hard up until 3 years ago, found out we were going to have our first child. I am now looking to get back into it. I have owned 2 .40gk, a .65, 3 1.00, and a 1.5. All were fantastic, except for the .65[&o]. One of the 1.00 was in a great planes little toni, and man did that sound awesome at full tilt in the air making a 100mph pass

I have a 65 I have had for nearly 20 years. I love it, think it is great, but it does need to be rebuilt.

Hey all,
I always wanted to own a Saito when I first entered the hobby, but with kids and all that comes with that, I just couldn't seem to pull the trigger and buy one. Kids are grown now and it's time. All I know about them is what I've read here and in the "broken english" manuals. I believe there's more info to be had here. What I know for sure is that I like being around "Saito people". Got room for another Saito Club member??_

Its sort of a dull flight, but it was the first time it flew. Thats when I found out how quiet it is. Love the BIG Saitos!

Hello Saito-ites,

Not only have I never owned a Saito, I have never even owned a 4-stroke motor! (I have 2-strokes and gassers.) So that is why I am clueless about how to solve my problem.

I have designed the 1910 Glenn Curtiss Hudson flier for a full scale replica project underway at the Glenn Curtiss Museum in Hammondsport, NY. They don't have an engine problem. They are using an original OX5 to power the replica. (The museum intends to re-enact the Hudson Flier's flight from Albany to New York on the 100th anniversary next May.)

I am building a 1/4 scale R/C version and am having a tough time finding the right engine. Even for a 1/4 scale plane with an eight foot wingspan (and two wings), the plane is very light. The CAD program is telling me the weight is 5-1/2 pounds. That is without the covering, motor, or rigging. Leaving out the motor, the plane should still weigh less than 8 pounds. I think that a 60 would be fine expect that this plane has a lot of drag. For this reason I would feel more comfortable with a 90. I could always use a lighter pitched prop.

I am concerned about vibration. I originally thought about using an RCV90 but it has a significant torque pulse that could be a problem. A multi-cylinder engine would be the best. That leaves few choices. The Laser V-twins are too big. Saito is the only manufacturer that I know of that makes a 60 or a 90 twin.

So that's why I'm here.

A friend lent me a 90T and I have been modeling it. The needle valves are not in yet but as you can see in the picture, the side mounted carb rests right up against the engine rail. I will have to make some modifications to accommodate this motor, including a hole in the rail for the needle valve to pass through. Not a pleasant thought.

In looking on the Saito website, the 90TS looks different. It looks as if the carb is mounted in the back. That would be good for this project. Also, in reading, it seems that some of the Saito engines run with the pistons in phase (in the same direction at the same time) and others run out of phase (away from each other or toward each other). The latter is what I would prefer. That would have far less vibration.

Any information about these engines would be greatly appreciated.

(If you are interested, there is a build thread on this plane in the scale section.)

Cheers.

Here is a shot of the TS90, it would mount easier.

If the low speed jet is not correctly set is there a place you start from. For instance the high speed jet we all start from three full turns and then start closing down until we get the max RPM then open it up a bit to make sure it is not too lean. What is the procedure with how we should approach adjusting the low speed jet.
Kevin
On the smaller Saito's like an 82 or 72 or 100 start with the low end flush with the plastic throttle arm . That should be way rich . Remeber that both high end and low end work together . If you make an adjustment to the low end go back and do the top end . Make another adjustment to the low end you redo the top end again . When you can idle forever and pound the throttle with no hessitation your 3D worthy .

I thought I was in club Saito....What's going on here?

BLATANT sales slamming going on here. It has nothing to do with the thread.

Pretty good mate,flying much?

For our american friends and others not familiar with the term 'mountain oysters' it refers to the process of fitting a small rubber ring around a lambs nearest and dearest.They shrivel up and drop off a few days later to lie scattered around the paddock,hence the term mountain oysters.

Nice touch and go,the weather looks brilliant.Can't guess where that is but looks like the port hills in the background,would love to fly against those again.
Cheers
peter

ps i meant you could have a go at hand carving one...i've got a spare peice of aussie hardwood you could try

'mountain oysters'...

...are well known here in the USA. Generally referring to bovine testicles though. Considered a haute cuisine by some.

Hummmmmmm, sounds like a good term for the Saito muffler, if not installed properly. If not installed at operating temp with a drop of light oil, they are prone to 'turn dark and fall off'.
