Hi all,
I have not flown in a few years. Looking to get back into it. Gas vs glow- at what engine size does the weight trade off make sense to go gas? Hope that made sense. Is gas a good choice...

The fuse is unchanged as it is the length of the rudder, at the bottom of the rudder, that is lengthened. The height of the rudder is unchanged.

I have had a Saito 45 in my kit built with ailerons, not enough power. When the ARF Senior first came out, there were a few in the club using an OS70 four stroke- that seemed to be a perfect combo.

I am a big fan of the 65. Smooth, easy too tune, stays in tune. Slightly heavy, but I think that helps smooth the firing impulses a bit. I have found the APC 13x6 to be great for my 4*40, fast enough...

Hobbsy, I did tune it that way when I installed the engine. I say it may be a low time engine because of the need to lean out the bottom end. Your suggested method has worked great on all my Saitos...

13x6 is too small for an 82. I have a Saito 65, APC 13x6 is perfect for the 4*40 it is mounted on. I also have the Saito 82 turning an APC14x6, perfect combo for the 3D profile plane behind it.

Thanks all, I got the 4*40 up yesterday. The wind was ample and gusty. The 4*40 felt so nimble coming off the senior. Did some basic aerobatics and touch and goes. A good day.

To prevent the sagging of the covering in the fabric, I added another spar in front. 1/8x 1/8 maybe. ...

RE: Saito 56 or 62

I have both those planes as well. The Saito 65 was an awesome match for both. I imagine the 62 would be better, less weight, touch more power.
