Product Description

Performance wise the Saito FG-17 is comparable to the Saito FA-100 glow engine. As with other FG engines, it employs a carburettor with a diaphragm pump. This helps make the engine non-critical in terms of fuel levels, allowing the fuel tank to be mounted in a wider range of locations, as well as sustaining fuel flow during aggressive aerobatics and vertical manoeuvres.

Each engine is supplied with a sparkplug, muffler, engine mount and an electronic ignition system.

Due to the fuel efficiency of this engine it only requires a tank with one-third the capacity of a similar glow engine. Fuel consumption is rated at just 15 cc per minute! The Saito FG-17 runs with any good quality forecourt petrol, mixed 20:1 with oil. Not only does this keep running costs low, it helps keep your airframe clean too as there is minimal exhaust residue.

Please use the Saito FG-17 engine mount supplied to get the best performance from this jewel of an engine.
