Oh yeah! Sure it will haul the 180. Just for kicks I stuck a DLE20 in my 8ft telemaster. It weighs about 850-900 grams after ignition battery which is pretty close to the mass of your saito180.

It had absolutely no trouble taking-off and flying. Landings were slow and easy too - and that plane did not have flaps...

Later I converted it to a twin with 2X 40 LA's and it flew fine with that and 2X 1L fuel tanks full of methanol (again - just for kicks). So that was ~ 1.6 kg of fuel and another 500 grams of motor. This setup was easy to takeoff and fly but landings were a bit faster than I would like.

Later I cut the motors out and made a pod on top of the wing. I used a single 40LA with 1L of methanol in it. So that was about 1.1 kg of motor and fuel. It was really hard to get off the ground and flew OK. Landing was easy...
