RE: Welcome to Club SAITO !

I posted a bunch of props I tested on my .40a one page back. I don't know what you concider large, but I'll probably fly the Beaver I'm building for this engine with a MA-S2 12x6 prop. It turns over...

RE: SMALL DISPLACEMENT FOUR STROKE GLOW TO GAS CONVERSION

Wow, that was quite a read. First off, I want to thank all of the contributers to this thread. I think I'm going to try to do a conversion on my Saito .82. Do you think the Zama (or walbro) mentioned...

RE: Welcome to Club SAITO !

Well, for anyone that's interrested, I tested a bunch of props on my .40a today. I wanted to test some of the MA S2 props (formerly scimitar) since they seem to perform well. I haven't run this...

RE: Welcome to Club SAITO !

I looked at his site and didn't see any Saito links, or any links for that matter. Maybe I was in the wrong place? Got a link?

RE: Welcome to Club SAITO !

Does anyone know where to find a torque/HP chart or graph for Saito engines? I'm thinking it might help in finding usable props. I've noticed a big difference in the way people prop their engines. I...

RE: Test Stand

Like most projects, it's a work in progress. I'm thinking of modifying thetruck mount with a hinge and a 90 degree stop so I can go vertical with the engine running on the stand.

RE: Test Stand

Here's my test stand. It works with all my Saito's from .40 to 1.80. I originally had it clamped to a workmate type sawhorse and it almost flew away when I throttled up my 1.80, so I got some 2"...

RE: any Saito experts here??

I agree with Ernie. Oil it up really well and prime it so it's sloppy wet before trying to start it. If you need any tuning tips for that Saito, just ask.

RE: Welcome to Club SAITO !

Flycatch, I don't know what's going on with your 220, but I did notice in an earlier post you stated that it would only go to 1/2 throttle then throw the prop. What did you do to fix it? I've noticed...

I've been away for a while, but it's good to see some of the same people are still here and active. I haven't flown in a couple of years, but I think I'm going to start working on my Beaver...

RE: Welcome to Club SAITO !

I have a MA Classic 18x6 on mine, and it turns 9000 rpm on the ground. The MA 16x8 is probably not quite enough prop for the 180, but another brand of 16x8 may work ok. I seem to remember getting...

RE: Welcome to Club SAITO !

I'm a big fan of the Cline regulator, too. I've seen my 1.80 idle in the 1200's and watched it idle for over a minute at 1350 rpms with the Cline. It idles smooth at 1600. and at 1800 on the test...

RE: Welcome to Club SAITO !

A 12x4 or 11x6 will also work well on that .45

To Balsa with the 1.80 Do yourself a favor, and adjust the LS needle. The engine will be much happier. I needed to turn mine in 3+ turns. I would...

RE: Electric to glow for E-flight DHC-2 Beaver

Altitude will definitely make a difference, but I can't tell you how much. The prop used will make a huge difference. I get 1 pound more static thrust from a 12x4 than I do from an 11x7. 11x6 to 12x5...

RE: Welcome to Club SAITO !

Looks awsome, and seems to fly at least scale from the video. Doesn't look like power is a problem. I say go for it, and post pictures/vids!

RE: Welcome to Club SAITO !

I would say you're pushing it at 9800. For 3D it's probably ok, but I wouldn't want to let it go any higher when it unloads, you don't want to let it spin much over 10 grand. I would try the 17x4, it...

RE: Welcome to Club SAITO !

Most Saito's hand start pretty easy. I think the key is in the prime. They need to be good and wet, then backflip (clockwise) against compression. They'll kick and start counter clockwise. Though I...

RE: Welcome to Club SAITO !

Looks like you get to disassemble your 2.70 and put new bearings in. Lucky you! I love tinkering with these things, even if I do make things difficult once in a while.

RE: Electric to glow for E-flight DHC-2 Beaver

I'm probably going to start with a 12x5 on my Saito. It should turn it at about 9800 rpm. I'll be flying off of a grass field at first, then once I trim and see how she flies, I'll get floats and...

RE: Welcome to Club SAITO !

Now you tell me.:eek: I usually do stuff like this on a CLEAN bench with a large towel underneath the piece just in case I drop a small part. I guess this is what you get for being sloppy.

RE: Welcome to Club SAITO !

I tried that. I think it may have bounced under the bench...and my work area is a mess right now. All I found were metal filings.
