Re: os 33gt or saito fg30

Guess it depends on what you plan on putting it in... I know both engines are well made and reliable.. So dependability and quality are somewhat equal... I have a FG-30 and it runs great, but I chose it because it was going into a scale biplane and I wanted that scaler sound.. The 33gt might be better in a 3D aircraft or one that's going to be used more for aerobatics...
Darren loves Floatplanes and dirt bikes

Re: os 33gt or saito fg30

Yes, Like Darren said.

it depends on what youre looking for in an engine. the saito and the GT33 are two totally different breeds.

the saito is a great engine, but its more for scale as it has that awesome sound. and spins at a lower RPM.

the GT33. is a performance engine. with more focus on flying aerobatic and 3D, I have one in my SBACH and the thing just OOZes power... it hauls ass.. and never gives me an issue..
Go Propless!
