It’s a crankcase breather/excess oil overflow. Hook a piece of fuel tubing to it and let it hang out the bottom of the cowl. We manufacture Ritch’s
Brew fuel here just North of Houston. We make a blend known as 15%
2 Cycle/4cycle with 18% synthetic oil. Use an OS “F” plug and a 12-6 APC
prop. With the throttle wide open, set the hi speed needle so you get
9400-9500 rpms. As long as you have a slight smoke trail against a blue sky you’ll do fine. Great little engine with a nice sound! (Thank you I phone auto correct..... Your Saito motor is now a “Saigon .56!”)

12x6 is a good choice for trainer/scale
Try 11x8 or 11x7 for little more speed.
Turn the needle for peak RPM then back of about 300.
Get the low needle also set, it's usually too rich. That will help with idle, transition and fuel consumption.
I have one with maaaanyyyy flights!!!
