CLUB SAITO ON RC-Groups

I would like to start a Thread for people with questions or small talk on Saito engines . RCU has a thread like this which I personally am tired of . Too many moderators and deleting of posts . If anyone has good knowledge of Saitos or questions subscribe to this thread and lets get it moving .

It would be nice if we had one place to go for help here instead of posting a thread that gets mixed up with all the others .

I have 3 SAITO's myself . A 2 115's and 1 82's and 1 .72 now .

I'm in as well. I recently aquired an old Hanger 9 Cub with a Saito 56 in it and it runs fantastic. Makes me want to get rid of my 2 strokes.

Welcome To All
Alright, Mike, I'm going to test your assesment of the group! I've got a Goldberg Tiger 60 kit, my second RC plane, that I'm building and plan to power it with a Saito 100, which is my first 4 stroke. Would anybody care to share what type of motor mount they like to use with their Saito engines, and more importantly, WHY they like it. I've done some searches on the forums here at RC Groups and I've found that some posts recommend a hard, rigid engine mount such as an aluminum mount in order to reduce or eliminate engine movement. Others mention use of flexible engine mounts and their advantage of reducing vibration on servos, receiver, and airframe in general. One particular thread discussed a screw breakage issue on a Saito throttle linkage and found that the plane with the issue had a glass filled nylon engine mount with an adjustable beam width that was believed to be undersized for the engine, and because of that, it allowed too much bending or torque flexing of the throttle linkage, thus, repeatedly breaking a screw on the engine.

It would be interesting to see if there is any one type of mount--1) rigid aluminum, 2) flexible/vibration reducing, or 3) glass filled nylon--that is more favored by Saito owners with similar size power plants as what I have.
