RE: What oil to use for Saito storage

I use the same thing execpt I mix 50% Reslone in it. Do you run the engine dry at the end of the day? because raw fuel in the crankcase will cause rust.

RE: Sportster 60 power

I would say if you got it, try it. It's always better to have too much power then not enough in my opinion. I would run a Saito 115 or 125a.

RE: How Long Do Servos Last?

RE: New Engine Select

If cost isn't an issue I would go with an O.S 160 twin with on board glow, fair bit of power and they sound perfect for a Cub. If the 160 is too pricey then I would use a Saito 150.

thats alot of motor for that size of plane, you might need to build up the front end a bit. If you can get it to balance and the prop clears the ground with the tail up I dont see y it wouldn't work....
