Engine runs great
Review by Timbers on 10 Jun 2016review stating Engine runs great
The engine has been good to me so far. I ran it in according to the directions, put it in my P47 and now have 12 flights on it. Been very reliable in the air and idles fine on landings. Sips gas like the other Saito 4 stroke gas engines. Could easily fly for 20+ minutes on a tank. I am running the scale collector muffler which really makes the engine sound real. Everyone loves hearing it fly.

Review by 007 N. on 27 Dec 2018review stating Sounds Nice But...Extremely Disappointed
I never had a problem with Saito engines until I started to break-in this engine. First ran engine very rich for 30 minutes so it was hard to tell if something was wrong. Leaned out and could not get more than 4200 rpm turning a 23x8 prop. Noticed #3 cylinder was cold after running engine. It had no power at top end. Wires,plug good suspect ignition system defect. Most expensive model engine I ever owned and now its going back to horizon to fix. :(

Review by Trimotor on 6 Sep 2019review stating FG-60R3
Ordered three engines to power a JU-52/3m that I was planning to build. It took two years to build and the engines were installed but never could get the engines to run unless setting the mixture lean and the they get hot. Working with horizon tech and we couldn’t get either one of them to run normal and tech advised to send them back for repair. Due to medical problems I was unable to get them returned till I recovered from a heart attack. All three engines had the same mechanical problem and tech was unable to repair but one of the three engines. Because the warranty was 6 months over three years I now have one engine and bagged parts of the other two engines. I have not run the one engine that was repaired but I have used Horizon Hobby for repairs in the past with excellent results.
