Hi, I would like to know if this new saito would be enough engine to power a Goldberg Ultimate?

No it would not. It would take off and fly circuits and that woudl be about it. If you plan on getting a 4 stroke for a Goldberg Ultimate, get a YS110, a YS120 or a Saito 120/150, depending on what you want to do with it. They fly really well on OS91fx's as there are a few in my club. Mine has a ASP 1.08 which has been a great combination. Cheap and reliable but a bit on the heavy side when compared to the more modern motors.

Hello; I flew a GB Ultimate for years with a 91 Surpass, I thought that it worked better then the Saito 120 I had in it at the beginning, but I think you would be dissappointed with the power of an 82 Saito. You will be able to take off and fly around without any problem but you will find that more power makes flying much easier. You will also find that you will have to add quite a bit of weight to the engine compartment to balance teh plane.
