Default Saito .72

Hello. I have been fly models for going on a year now. Everything in my hanger has 2-stroke engines(40 an 60 size planes).Over the weekend i bought a used funtana with a saito 72. Great toy flys like a champ an the engine is super reliable.It cam with a gallon of YS 20-20 Fuel. The fuel is not carried at my LHS. So I was wondering would the 4-stroke run on 15 percent coolpower(2-stroke), an if so how would it runan would i have to change the needle setings much...Any help with this would be great...Thanks

I use coolpower in my saito all the time, have no problem with it.

I run all my Saitos on two-stroke PowerMaster 10% w/o any problems....if you go with higher Nitro, you will probably get a better idle, but the way mine are set, they idle perrrr fectly

Cool power is A-O.K. just less gunk on the plane after flying

Hey delman, thanks for the input. I went out today with it an flew it on coolpower. done great. seemed like it had a lil better idle.Only flew two flights 27 out side, so i couldn't handle much more. Anyway thanks
