Saito Seisakusho Co. Ltd. is one of the best recognized and respected modeling companies in the world. This Japanese manufacturer of the highest class 4-stroke aircraft engines, has been supplying modelers from all over the world for over 50 years.
The four SAITO tactics have found recognition in the world of professional pilots who value excellent technical parameters, durability and performance, as well as for beginners, primarily for simple regulation and virtually maintenance-free operation.
Chrome-hardened piston made of silicon-rich aluminum alloy with compression ring, monolithic cylinder head structure (no cylinder known from other engines!) For lower weight and better rigidity of the structure, crankshaft made of hard chromium-molybdenum steel based on two top-quality ball bearings or a precise, very efficient sports carburetor - all the stages of production of each of these key elements, 100% manufactured in Japan, remain under the strict control of SAITO engineers to ensure unrivaled quality.
It is no secret that each of the Japanese manufacturer's engines is considered to be a real model mini work of art. All 4-bars with the SAITO logo are characterized by unchanging high quality performance for years with enormous attention to detail, unrivaled performance (with their physical parameters), as well as, which is not without significance - design, and unique sound produced during work. All this makes SAITO engines a brand in itself.
The FA-82 B engine is a replacement motor for 2-stroke engines with a capacity of 6.5 to 8.5 ccm, both in trainers weighing approx. 2,200 - 2,600 g trainers with a span of approx. 1500 - 1600 mm and in Fun-Fly models with a span approx. 1200 mm and weight within 2.3 kg. This fast-accelerating 4-stroke engine will not only work evenly and quieter than a 2-stroke counterpart, but will also spin a much larger propeller - as much as a 14-inch! Due to the relatively small dimensions, the FA-82 B engine will be installed on the same cradle as the smaller SAITO FA-56 or FA-72 units.
The SAITO FA-82 B engine is also available in the exclusive "Golden Knight" version, with a black body and gold valve covers.
