RE: For Racing: Losi TEN SCTE RTR or roller?

The SCTE RTR is about as good as they get for an RTR. It's also a great value now that they are being discounted due to the ver 2.0 coming out in a couple days. With that said, I think the...

RE: Honda GX25 flies...on Big Bee

what is the wingspan, (or more importantly wing area) and weight of the fokker? the short nose should be good for the heavy engine, I'm guessing it'll have plenty of wing, kinda like a sopwith...

RE: Honda GX25 flies...on Big Bee

A good friend of mine put a GX-35 on a giant telemaster, I don't know how much more it weighs than the 25, but it's got quite a bit more power, and with a wing that big, it's still a floater. ...

RE: Honda GX25 flies...on Big Bee

This thread is over 4 years old !! I had no idea it would keep coming back, or I would have left the pics, but the "engine conversion" crowd is so small I figured everyone had seen it. I removed...

RE: saitos FA 180 and FA 220 ????

Wow, thanks Hobbsy, that's very interesting. First of all, it's not really a "pump" per se, it is just pressurizing the tank, take a look here http://saito-engines.info/pumps.html it looks...

RE: Saito 220 installed in Giant U-Can-Do 3d

Thanks to Hobbsy, we have a pic to help show my point. If you look at his pic, the carbs appear to be at roughly the same height from the work bench, however notice the mounting lugs on the 220...

RE: Saito 220 installed in Giant U-Can-Do 3d

Do you have any pics of this apparatus ? I understand the logic that it stays full and prevents air from getting to the carb, but it doesn't solve the issue of the tank being at the wrong height....

RE: Saito 220 installed in Giant U-Can-Do 3d

Do you remember it taking a long time to be ultra reliable, and idle slowly ? I had a Saito 72 when they first came out, It really gave me fits for a while, and I was a bit upset that I had...

RE: Saito 220 installed in Giant U-Can-Do 3d

More testing today, I have close to 2 hrs run time on it now, with about 45 minutes of it installed on the plane, inverted. The Zinger 20x6 turned 8100, the Pro Zinger 20x8 turned 7800, and a...

RE: Saito 220 installed in Giant U-Can-Do 3d

Check this out, http://saito-engines.info/pumps.html and scroll down to the "saito pump system" it sounds like what you are talking about, using the crankcase pressure to pressurize the tank, but...

RE: Saito 220 installed in Giant U-Can-Do 3d

I saw 8100, but it was at night, using a flashlight through the prop, and it was a Zinger. I'll try to have some better, more realistic numbers later.

RE: Saito 220 installed in Giant U-Can-Do 3d

That's essentially a fuel dot, except you need their machined nozzle, rather than pulling a piece of tubing through a sleeve. That looks like another simple, effective method. I'm glad I decided...

RE: Saito 220 installed in Giant U-Can-Do 3d

I've replumbed everything, I'm running a 3rd line for fueling, (no 2nd clunk) The tubing barely sticks through the stopper, so hopefully I can de-fuel most of it just by tipping it on it's nose. I...

RE: Saito 220 installed in Giant U-Can-Do 3d

I'm somewhat skeptical of a fueler too, but it's been many many years since I've used one, the slimline excel fueler looks pretty good, and from what I can tell, there is no "valve" , after you...

RE: Saito 220 installed in Giant U-Can-Do 3d

I'm using powermaster 20/20. I ran it again with the fuel line directly from the tank to the carb, and it ran MUCH MUCH better. It looks like I just had too much length. I guess I'm going to...

RE: Saito 220 installed in Giant U-Can-Do 3d

No clamping necessary ! I will just disconnect it, that's why I have it "separate" there with the filter rather than running a T and a fuel dot, so while I'm fueling , the line to the carb won't...

RE: Saito 220 installed in Giant U-Can-Do 3d

Ok, when I first read your post about siphoning, I was thinking you meant it wouldn't draw fuel, as in long distances, like with the tank back on the CG. sorta like the Mokis were known for, well...

RE: Saito 220 installed in Giant U-Can-Do 3d

Thanks for the compliments guys.

Maudib was correct !

That is the line to the carb, routed outside just so I can fuel it without using a T fitting (and pinching the line to the carb), or...

I just swapped out my ZDZ 40 for a Saito 220. I started a new thread with pics to show that it will fit by modifying the mount (not the firewall) if anyone is interested.
