IC Engines / Re: Saito 82 B

The "fourstoke sound" presumably being that flatulent cat impression that exudes from such contraptions - nothing like the clean, clear music of a proper two-stroke above 26,000rpm...

Quote from: PDR on June 05, 2020, 12:09:47 pmA strictly personal view - £250 is a heck of a lot to spend on an IC motor, plus the extortionate price of fuel these days, so I'd be looking more at gettinga 6-8s electric setup that would do the same thing without the noise, mess and faffing.

Your " faffing' replaces the 4 stroke sound ?. :D

Opinions and experiences differ chaps, respect each others views and opinions.
We can not know under what circumstances other people use equipment, two people may well fuel, prop and use an engine in differing environments. I have never owned a Saito but in MY OPINION as a modeller with fifty years + experience Saitos that I have seen used by club members and at various meets and shows seem to run well. As do my OS, ASP and SC engines.

Yes you are right, there is always someone who does not know how to run an engine, :''  I have lots of second hand 'non runners' ^-^  got for a song that never seem to stop,,  ;)

as for BV I do read up before posting on other sites  :banghead: saito 82b.png

Quote from: British Victory on June 05, 2020, 07:13:17 amBut they aren't 82Bs, with all due respect if you haven't had them how can you possibly comment? Having 30 odd year old engines from the same maker and a couple of thousand posts on a moribund forum doesn't give you the experience of shelling out cash for several engines of the ilk the OP wanted info on and having them self destruct before your eyes.
I have one 62 and one 82b left and they are running ok right now but there is no way that I would fix them to a half decent airframe.
My OS 4 strokes have never been any trouble provided the O rings on the carbs are renewed every "few" years on the larger ones, the 3 x 26S, 40, and 40S (all bought new) go on for ever. Same with the YS I've had. I also have had half a dozen lasers, some of which I sold to fund the Saitos, big mistake, fortunately I have a 70, 80 and 100 left which are plodding on.

Quote from: paulinfrance on June 04, 2020, 16:29:51 pmOMG !, I have  3 x .45 specials one std .45, a .120 and an FG-30 ( petrol 180 )
the .45's have been running for around 30+ years, two re-ringed the others 'for ages' and nothing wrong with them  with exception of the FG-30 with the 'bubble problem', they are fantastic engines,

They vibrate significantly more than the similarly sized OS, I sold mine ( 3 of them) on as the big ends seized on two of them which was a disappointment. Apart from that nowt wrong with them.
If you look at http://www.macgregor.co.uk/saito/sai82a10a.htm you can see neither end of the conrod is bushed.
I have to say that the two 125s and 2 62s I had (sold all bar 1 x 62) didn't have the same problem.
