This engine is the gas equivalent of the 220 glow engine in terms of size and dimensions, yet it gives you the cleaner, lower-operating cost of gas with 36cc of power. Above and beyond the advantages of a 4-stroke gas engine, this is the engine for those who like to run clean and efficient engines. Accompanied by the power and precision craftsmanship of Saito, the distinguished look and sweet sound, this is the engine many of you have been waiting for.

For serious modelers, the long awaited arrival of a high-quality, powerful and precision craftsmanship gas engine is here.

The Saito electronic ignition system requires the use of a 4.8–6.0 volt battery for proper operation. A capacity of 1000 mAh or more is recommended.
