Furius 96
« on: May 17, 2011, 12:19:16 AM »
Does this run the engine as a side mount?  I was looking for a plane to put my Saito 62 in.

I built a Blue Pants as a kid. Wish I still had it. Might even learn to fly it.

That answers the side mount question.

Is there some reason why your Saito won't run inverted?

It probably runs well inverted. Most of the best runs I have seen with saitos were side mounted. Just didn't want to build a plane for it then find out I should of made it a side mount instead. I dislike chewing my tobacco twice, it ain't as tasty the second time.

Gordon, I'd just like to see you get something done and then get your butt to the field and fly it. mw~

Just bustin' your b@lls here. But I see potential in you and want to see you get better.

Gordon: I've run plenty of Saito engines without any problems.
The 40, 56, and 72. I ran a Saito 56 inverted for several years
in my Berenger Sportster and it always ran great.

Thanks Steve and others for the info on this. I will quit sweating the small stuff. Now Clint , you know I love this C/L stuff, but I still put in alot of time at the track to get my horsepower fix from the Alky and nitro motors I flog. I will have stuff at the field soon. By the way I hear you are up to 14 new in the box Brodak 40's now. Hmmm.!

*thread drift alert*

15 Brodaks, but they're not all NIB. Maybe 10 or 11 of them.

The glue is flowing this weekend on the fuselage, I am doing the engine crutch right now as I am watching the F2 race on TV and waiting for F1.  these races are live on TV about 4 AM so it makes it nice to work on the planes at the same time.
