Saito 72 vs 80 vs 82

PostPosted: Fri Jan 30, 2009 8:57 pm

I'm thinking ahead.

I have a saito 82 and it's turning a bit over 10K peak (10,200, IIRC) with a apc 14x4W on 15% cool power and omega mix with a little extra castor added.

What kind of power do the 72 and 80 make? Is the 72 or 80 (older design) more powerful? I think the 80 is heavier?

Right. And I'm getting my numbers from a globee intellitach, FWIW (For What It's Worth :angelic: )

I'm considering less expensive powerplants for possible future profiles. I wondering if the 82 is really that great. They seem to have gotten rather expensive.

Also, I seem to recall reading somewhere - rcgroups maybe that someone was getting about 11k rpm with heli fuel and a turbo muffler (whatever that is) with the same prop as me. What are expected 82 figures with my prop?

Thanks,
Rodney

Older 80 heavier and less power. http://saito-engines.info/index.html Check out the comparison of the three.

The 72 and 82 are the same weight. The 80 is heavier.
Even if it's fifty bucks more, get the 82.

Try a 14x6 on that 82, you'll like it more than the 14x4, at least I do.

Is the 14x6 a wide prop like the 14x4W? What about its performance do you prefer? And you're talking about an apc, right?

Thanks

14-6 scimitar. http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wt ... LXNGU4&P=7
don't confuse rpm with useable thrust. prop it in the 9500 range.

the 80's a good runner. less power thasn the 72 from the several I've flown on other peoples junk.

my 72 turns like 9500-9800 on a 13-6 scimitar. yanks my 4 lb. stuff all over the place, and they are cheap since the 82's popular now.

I've had a couple 82's, sold them. great power, shakers though. and that was before the 14-6 scimitar came out, I couldn't find a prop I liked. too many rpm for me on 13-6, tried several 14" props, wasn't satisfied.

last few saitos ive bought have been the 72's had the 82's and 72's and just really loved how smooth my 72's have been....and I know it will be said that my 82 must not have been tuned right and others will say that their 82's were as smooth as any 72 but I find the 72 is perfectly adequate for my 40 size slabs and have been smoother for me than the 82's so thats what I went with

Come on dang it, you guys buy this shit so I can buy some other shit.
I got too much shit and I need some newer shit to replace my old shit.

same here i like the 72 much better than the 82,a lot smoother.
and they are a lot cheaper now when you buy them used sense the 82 is what everyone wants.
there is one now on FG for 160.00.

Oh, the S2. I've run an S2 11x5 on a couple of 46s. It turns much faster than an apc 11x5. I like the apc a better on my high wing trainer but I like S2 on my mustang pts.

I'll give the s2 14x6 a try.

:exactly:

Unless you are going on a warbird or speed plane, then peak RPMs is not a concern. We don't do much flying at full throttle anyway. With my Saito's I'm hardly ever at full except for verticals. With the 2 cycles on 4 1/2 pound planes I find myself using full a lot more compared to a Saito on the same plane.

rodneygt,You will like the "Dorkability" of the S-2 also! I routinely crash 'em on my 4d, they put up with much more abuse than APC!

Same size an weight as the .91 and 1.00 with a lot less power. Would make a sweet moter for a .60 sized trainer.

I like wood. I's rather break wood than bend a crank and they spool up faster. 14x6-anything that is NOT APC. They suck for 3D IMO because they are heavy. The S2 is good, even the Mas-K isn't bad if you want plastic.

Use ?x6 pitch for four strokes and ?x4 pitch for 2-strokes.

I like 6 pitch for about everything anymore, though I will us a 5 pitch on a 2 stroke to fine tune throttle response.
