Sorry this is a bit of a stupid question but what size saito or engine would the CA 24% extra 330l take

I take it a saito 100 is a wee bit small for it

I think the 100 will be a bit too weak, it will fly but not enough power for decent 3D. I think the saito125 may be ok for that plane but the 150-180 would be awesome. You may have trouble balancing it with the 125 because it quite light.


Edit: Haha, trev answered already, i must hit refresh more often.

Hey guys!! Nice to see some fellow Southern Hemishperians starting their own HUUGEE thread.
Thought I would add a post to help kick it along.
Keep up the good work!

Hey Andreas
Jason totaled his plane and wanted to fly at Robertson . I had a old Pacific EDGE ( the baby bro of my bigger one)
at home in the garage I used to fly it with a asp 108 and Jason had a Saito 80 which he wanted to trade with sum1 for a saito 100. So I hadn't flown the plane in like 8 months so I gave it to Jason to have fun with. Better to see it flying than see it collecting dust. Some people did the same favours 4 me when I was Jasons age so I wana repeat the cycle. But I will keep you in mind when the next ones available

The plane is designed for a 1.60 sized engine (26cc gas). I'm not sure what that would be in 4T power, I guess something in the range of 200 or so.
