Saito Engines FG-11 Gas Single Cyliner Engine: BZ
Fun engine. Sounds great, starts easy and broke in easy. I broke in on the airplane and it made a mess, but within 3 tanks of fuel it was running clean. I put it in a 1/6 Phoenix Sbach and it pulls it really good. It will vertical the plane for couple hundred feet before it runs out of pull. Super fuel economy, it will run over an hour on 10 ounces of gasoline. I have done everything that the engine manual suggests and I am very happy with it. If you are looking for lots of power you might want a 2 stroke but for fun sound and cheap fuel this can't be beat.
