Saito 100

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Thought I would put this one out for your input.

Over the weekend, I took an 8 hour drive to
a funfly. I got talking to a guy that had a Saito 100,
the same I was flying. Mine is just broken in.

He told me that he had sent his in for bearing once
already. Now after 10 gallans of fuel, he has to send it
in again for the same reason. I took a look at his and
sure enough it needs bearings again.

He told me that he knew of another guy with the same problem.

Have any of you Experienced the same issue?

I've actually seen a lot of Saitos for sale where in the ad it will say..."new bearings just installed". Now, in that case we don't know how many gallons went through the engine but it seems that a lot of Saito owners are replacing bearings. My interest in this topic is because I recently bought a new Saito 180 and am wondering if this is a fuel issue. What fuel do people use in their Saitos??

most of the fuel we use today does not require after run its not the fuel more like poor quality in the balls or races. bearing only has a certain number off rotations in it before the actual metal alloy falls apart in the balls. as the bearings spin they also become magnetized through time a piece of metal then will score the race. the better bearings cost money. the mistake is prolly replacing them with saitos original equipment
