I've got 2 Saitos and wouldn't trade em for anything.
the 120 is in a Great Planes Extra 300S
the other is a 56, I had it in an Airsail Chipmunk. Installed inverted, no glowdriver, never burped, hiccuped or skipped a beat once. Didn't care if it was upside down, sideways or rightside up. Great little engine!!! Flew that Chipmunk great.
I'd buy another in a heartbeat, (if I could get it past my wife!!!)

I have a Saito .56 in my Sportster Bipe.

A .91 in my Hog Bipe (Claude the .72 is minimal power for the Hog, you might want to consider the .91; not too overpowered, but can help get you out of trouble)

I have another .56 in a box waiting for me to build the Pete N Poke.

Mrs. Nuker has yet another .56 for her GP Cub.

lessee if I can post a picture.....

This is not mine - it belongs to my Dad....powered by two Saito 91's. What a sound they make! They are so consistent and reliable!! And they have not missed a beat.....

I also own a coupld of OS Surpass 4 strokes, and there is nothing wrong with them - especially the 70......what a sweetheart of an engine......

The sooner you fall behind, the more time you will have to catch up.

I bought a Saito 45 in early 80's and put it in my cub. Had trouble idling at first, but once it had a gallon thru it , it ran beautiful. I flew it for years and I swear it got more powerful by the year. Must have hundreds of flights on it and it still purrrrrrrs. I would buy another Saito in a minute, excellent runners and nice sound too!

Hi Gang: I've got a Saito 91 in a Midwest little Cap 232. That engine is flawless.It has about 3 jugs of 15% fuel through it. Choke and flip 6 times, flip 6 more times no choke, add glow heat, throttle at idle, grasp the spinner and back-flip the prop against compression, and 9 times out of 10 it will start first flip. Very seldom do I have to use the starter or chicken stick. I use the OS "F" plug,and it swings an APC 14x8 at 8400 rpm with no hesitation or loading through the full throttle range. It also leaves a visible smoke trail. This is my first time 4 stroke and I love it! I've got a new Saito 150 to go in an ACE Extra 230 1/4 scale thats on the building board. I can hardly wait. Love those Saitos

Say, all you Saito lovers.....I read through the articles, but no one has posted anything on the two cylinder Saito 300, or three cylinder Saito 450. I like the sound of the four strokes, but is it worth it? Are these engines worth their price? What are the problems? What should one be aware of if he buys one? Any ideas out there?
