Saito 270 Twin


Crashed Saito 270 Twin 4 stroker: $325.00 shipped.
Reduced to $275.00
Reduced to $250.00

After a very tall loop, while pulling out at the bottom, the elevators on my 1/4 scale Spacewalker flutterd, the tail disentigrated, and the plane nosed in. The plane is a total loss, but the engine made it through ok. THe rear, bolt on, motor mount is bent as are the push rod tubes (Maybe the pushrods too). The needle valve is bent too. All of the parts are available from horizon and the total will be less than $100 delivered. I just dont have another plane for the engine. The engine had about a gallon and a half of fuel through it (barely broken in) and still turns over just fine. Includes a 4 inch truturn spinner (slightly bent).

Jim

damaged saito


ouch!! I am interested. Do you have original packaging, tools etc. Also You state cost of repairs at +- 100, is that parts cost only?? I am in Canada and have to consider shipping back and forth, exchange etc. Send me a detailed PM or email with as much info as possible. Thanks. John K

270


I have th original box and the tools. I probably have the paperwork too, but I dont want to promise the paperwork until I can put my hands on it. Yes, my estimate is parts only.

Thanks
Jim
