Works great! In stock form it may be slightly "soft" and require you to fly it more on the wing. If you convert it to CDI ignition, it picks up a good amount of power and then it's more than enough....

You don't think these engines would benefit from a proper needle bearing setup? Look at all other quality 4 stroke gas and glow engines outside of Saito. That's pretty naive to just say "Next".
