RE: Who flies Saito 40

Yeah, night & day difference. With only 'bout an ounce & a quarter weight penalty; On a 4 pound plane, you're only adding 2% to the weight while gaining near 30% in power. Unfortunately, not an easy...

RE: Who flies Saito 40

Got two of them; one still NIB. The other saw duty in a Aeromax 25-40 counterfit Rascal. Very nice combo. And, as was stated previously, very stingy on fuel usage. Dumb-Thumbed the Rascal, then put...

RE: Found a Lil' Extra if anyone is looking for one:

This model is neat in so many ways, but what I really like 'bout it is that the plane is "happy" with an engine range from mild to wild. Have probably tried at least 5 different engines (no diesel, I...

RE: os 15 III RC prop nut ... 5.5x.8 ???

Chris & George, You guys are obviously correct in advising to use more prop on this engine. I chose the 7x4 for the test run just to compare to a Enya .09 performance. (I have several Enya .09...

RE: K&B 3.5 engines

I've got a few of these. I noticed that a couple of them have a very large carb, & the others have a "normal" size. Also, as Dennis stated. These engines really come alive with a smaller prop. As was...

RE: os 15 III RC prop nut ... 5.5x.8 ???

Thanks for the input guys. The measurements of the different screws are very close. I'll probably go with the 12x32 since the cost of the tap is only 'bout 10% of the 7/32 unit. This "free" engine is...

RE: Club JETT

Not an XLS, just a .36 ASP II. (I don't have any idea what the difference is.) 17,160 with an APC 8x8, & 17,640 with a 8x7. Really turns a counterfit Rascal (AEROMAX) into a pylon racer wannabe....
