The Saito™ brand continues to expand their radial engine line with the addition of the FA-120 3-cylinder radial. Ideal for 60- to 90-size models, the FA-120R3 is an upgrade from the FA-090R3 engine, featuring 33% larger displacement and more power—all at a lighter weight for a higher power-to-weight ratio. The FA-120R3 also comes with a 3-piece flex exhaust system, making for an all-inclusive package.
And, like all Saito engines, this powerhouse is engineered with that same Saito quality and reliability you have come to know and trust.

Review by Shmaga on 25 Mar 2014review stating 125 Replacement?
Since Hangar 9 has discontinued several of there 60 Size Warbirds I decided I wanted to trick out my Corsair 60 a little more. Since Horizon had the Corsair Cowls in stock I decided to order both items along with my typical list of many little things such as a couple different spinners, new rubber starter cones, glue, etc. I bolted it to a board and ran it at the 4000 rpm for a couple tanks of glow fuel. I used the Saito wires that came in the box and clipped them to the glow plugs and for whatever the reason they did not make good connection and I had to use different connections. It started well, ran very smooth and at that point I was pretty jazzed. I removed the FA125 and Installed the 120R3. The 120R3 calls for a smaller prop so I knew it would probably not run as strong. I was right, it don't but it does run very well. Once started and wound up a time or 2, this engine will not quit until you throttle all the way back or run it out of fuel. Overall it looks, sounds and runs great but my currant experience says it will not replace the power of even the FA115 thats in my Spitefire.
