    Great airplane!
    I had the first one in Canada (as far as I knew).
    That Saito will be perfect. I had the 7-77 Radial and it worked well but a little more power would have been nice.
    Enjoy

    You cannot fly it like a sport plane.
    You have to fly it scale.
    It will loop, roll and be a real sweetheart but you have to respect it. Energy management.
    The wing loading is high so if you haul it around it will snap on you.
    You will want a TONE of expo on your Rudder to takeoff and land smooth - I was running 80%! Took me a lot of taxi tests to get that feeling comfortable.
    I also would highly suggest always using some amount of flap for landing. I used full flap all the time cause I liked the look but required a lot of throttle to manage the drag. 1/2 flap is much more reasonable.
    No flap required for takeoff until you get used to it and then 1/2 flap takeoffs are great.

    Thanks Dan . why the expo on the rudder . I have pretty good rudder control. is it very rudder sensitive ?? or did you mean elevator 80% expo, I could see that ..

    Oh the elevator needed expo for sure but the Rudder needed a tone.
    The aircraft is short-coupled so the yaw is really sensitive and easy to over-control.
    Big engine spinning a big prop doesn’t help - a lot of precession
