APC 14 x 8 or a 15 x 6. 14 x 8 will give you more speed. 15 x 6 will give you better climb rate.

Howe did it fly with the Saito 100? I'm looking at that motor with the Ultra Stick 60.

Thanks

APC 16 X 4W will give you the best vertical with the Saito 100

I ended up trading for a Funtana X50 this time around, NIB, I'll have to use my Saito 72 for that, unless I have an 82 round here somewhere. The 100 would be too much.

I may still get an Ultra Stick 60 for that 100, it's got to have something to pull around the sky. A Saito sitting on a shelf is a sad thing. Especially if it has already tasted freedom once...

I've seen a 100 do real well in a U-Can-Do 40.

It fits in there like the plane was intended for it.

You have to use a new mount

Oh, I didn't say I couldn't make it FIT....... I once put a Thunder Tiger 60 on a SIG Wonder and flew it.....just to see if it could be done.

Yes, it can........The big problem was getting my NERVES UN-done....

Guy came to the field with a Diamond Dust he had bought from some one with a Norvell 25 and he put a LA 40 in it with a 8-4 prop.

Sounded pretty good.

He was doing fast fly-by's at low level until he hit a fire ant mound. It didn't hurt the fire ants too bad but the Diamond Dust was history.

I ended up buying an Ultra Stick 60 for that Saito 100. I've got the box on the shelf while I finish building 4 whole sets of shelves for my honey-do list, then I can get back into my RC stuff. I shouldn't complain I guess, those shelves will organize the garage and give me room to move around while I work on my planes.

All the while that Ultra Stick box will be calling out to me...."Oh, Jiiiimmm!!! I'm over heeere!! You need to build me nooooow!"....

*****SIGH*****

Lol

Yeah, I was thinking about it all day, silently putting my list together. "That Saito 100 from the boinked Edge should be fine, it still has a good aluminum nose cone, onboard glow worked great so I'll use that too, Fuel dot and tank should still be fine.....I've got enough servos so I'm in good shape there. Just got my AR7000 Rxs upgraded, so I'm styling there....... Should I use the stock control horns?....Should be done building those shelves in another week or two, I'll dive right in then..... Should I get some carbon fiber rods??....I saw that site with the new Stainless rod ends this morning...Should I do pull-pull?....."


I'd say I've pretty much got it all built. All I've got to do now is....build it!

I'm currently flying the Ultra Stick 40 w/Saito .62 and 12-7 prop. Love it!

If I had the US60, I'd consider putting the rudder/elevator servos mounted on the rear of the fuselage. My US40 has 'em in the fuselage wing area and I had to add tail weight.

I have a Saito 56 on mine with a 13-4. Mine was nose heavy so I removed that boat anchor aluminum motor mount and replaced it with a Great Planes. It balanced perfect then.

So......with the Saito 100 on the nose the servos in the tail shouldn't be a problem then.....great. I have NEVER liked split wire on dowel elevator linkages.....

Looking forward to putting it together even more now.

i've put about 8 together for locals, better then half of them with the Saito 100, all balanced perfectly with the tail servos mounted under the wing saddle where they are supposed to be.

The elevator servo is going in the tail.  I'll probably Pull-Pull the Rudder anyway.</p>

#1 there is no split wire, the elevator is 1 pc, with basswood not a joiner wire so it's a single pushrod, simple and best of all It Works!!!</p>

#2  completely unnecessary, there's no need to try and reinvent the wheel.</p>

I guess I've got the kit components from another kit in my mind.  Sorry for the confusion.  I always keep about 8 building manuals from kits on the shelves sitting there by my chair and I read up on them for a long time before I actually get started building. I just got the Ultra Stick so it's pretty new.  </p>

Even so, I don't like those wood pushrods.  I find they tend to be sloppy and work better pulling than pushing.  They can be channeled through eyelets which controls the slop and stiffens it up for pushing, which is fairly common in most linkages except for pull-pull and direct rod drive.   I'll give it a good looking over and see exactly what it is.  I'm certainly not trying to go and reinvent the wheel here.  No promises, though, I might still go for the servo in the tail.  </p>
