OK.... I guess I just ''returned'' to club Saito... I bought a 450! Now, I have to find the right plane. I think I just found out why there are so many brand new 450's out there in the market... there just doesn't seem to be a perfect plane, other than a couple of warbirds, for this motor.

I'm trying to find a 1/4 scale Stearman, or maybe a Waco, but no luck other than going with a new stick built kit. Any suggestions?

Congrats on your new engine! I totally see your point for a big bipe - that's where I'd go too! I would encourage a full build, it really gives you a lot of options. Take a look at some of the laser cutters, I bet you find just what you want. Pick a plane you really want to see flying over head, then pick up the right laser cut kit - some can enlarge/shrink existing work as well - so you know it will be just right for the engine.

Aeroworks is planning to re-introduce their ARF Stearman next spring, so I may wait until that starts shipping to put this motor where it belongs... until then, I might try to find a suitable Yak or Sukhoi or something just to tide me over.

I love the look of a kit-built plane, but I just don't have the skills and patience required to do it right. I'd rather have an ARF that's OK than a banana that I built!

Do you think Aeroworks Stearman will be great match for SEDIEL ST9-90 M
SAITO 325 RADIAL Mounting Dimensions: 170mm x 220mm
SAITO 450 RADIAL Mounting Dimensions: 200mm x 250mm
SEDIEL ST-9 RADIAL Mounting Dimensions: 160mm x 260
SEDIEL SD-7 RADIAL Mounting Dimensions: 160mm x 230

Man.. that's a nice looking motor! It may be a little heavy, and it may swing too big of a prop for a 1/4 scale plane... but it looks like it would fit. I don't know what the exact specs of the AW Stearman will be, I'm only guessing it would be about the same as the previous version.

Oil content..... in the larger size Saitos, say 150 - 220, or larger, are you guys using fuel with less oil content similar to what is used in the large 2 stroke glow engines????

Thanks,

Ernie

The only way to obtain the skills and patience is to begin building airplanes and learn along the way. I wouldn't trust such an expensive engine to a Chinese ARF maker.

You own a Master's Class engine, yet you want to buy a beginners' class model, an ARF. Seldom can you have it both ways in life. You'd be better off with an OS .40LA powered trainer plane. At least that way none of the beginners at the field will mistake you for someone that knows what he is doing because you own an expensive radial engine. You'll find that few things grate the old timers nerves as much as the scene I have just described. We have all seen our share of credit card financed "experts" over the years.

I hope you find a happy solution.

Ed,

I really don't think you can classify all ARF's as a beginners class model. There are very good ones and some not so good. Four years of building and operating usually puts a flier beyond the OS 40 trainer class.

I think it is the ability and confidence a flier has that determines his next plane.I moved from a trainer toa fast P51 in 6 months. If the bi-plane appeals, go for it!

Well crap. I'm guilty of putting a good engine on a beginner class airplane. Saito 1.70 in a Pacific Aeromodels Monocoupe [shudder - dare I say it?] ARF It sure does fly good though Sorry Ed and any old timers I've chafed. I'll be sure to say some extra Hail Mary's on Saturday as penance.

I know this is a hot button topic, ranking right up there with politics and abortion, but there are some pretty crappy ARFs flying around. I've seen some that I thought were barely airworthy. I assembled one at work recently, and the lack of quality is appalling. I can see where you are coming from, and I can see what Ed means.

All that being said, you sure have a nice looking model that flies well and sounds great!

No problem, because you do it with such great style.

My apology to the OP. I meant what I said, but I said it with too much OF zeal.

I would think it takes a bit of skill and want to, to make a crappy ARF into a really decent plane.

LOL Old Fart. Always entertaining to hear from you. I've been in a flap or two myself. I've got this one set up with flaperons but rarely use them. It slows down fine without them.

If you have the skill and the tools building a plane from a kit is very rewarding. Attached are a few photos of a Spitfire made from an old Top Flight kit I purchased on E Bay. I am having fun. It will take another month as I have just finished the fuselage and am now going to work on the wing. After this I have a Corsair kit and will attempt a Lightning if I can get a good kit at a reasonable price.
