|Thread: Laser Engines - Technical questions|
Laser are worth the wait
I will try to get someone to video it ,yes the 180 fly it well on loops it just pulls up without loosing any power .I have a problem with the fuel at the moment .After exactly 6 minutes the engine just cut out .Which to me indicated a problem with the fuel delivery .Took the tank out and found almost a 1/4 of a tank of fuel left in the tank so I have re plumb the tank because it seems the pick up was a bit short It ready to try again but the weather up here is not that good at the moment .Once I get a chance to fly it again I am hoping that will cure the problem I'll let you know

|Thread: Wots Wot XL fuel tank ?|
Just removed the tank and discovered almost half a tank of fuel still left in the tank even though I have empty the tank on the fuel pump .Taken it all apart an re plump it all .Think the pick up fuel line had some how been to short ,think when I tighten the bung up must of pull the feed line or something shorten it Doh !!!!! Seems to work OK now but will have to wait until Sunday to try it out at our field .Fingers crossed
Can anyone tell me what size fuel tank Ripmax use in there Wots Wot XL kits .I am using the fuel tank that comes with the kit and was thinking of putting a 16oz tank in it but do not want to take it all apart to find out the standard fuel tank is a 16oz tank and I have just wasted my money and brought a tank that is already in it ?
|Thread: Laser Engines - Technical questions|
Brilliant the Laser 180 is perfect combination with Wots Wot XL fly it really well and sound better then any 2 stoke petrol Even had someone at our field today came up after I had landed the Wots Wot XL to ask me what engine I had in it .When I told him it was a Laser 180 he replied " Right a Laser should of known .It sounds great "The 180 fly it really well even when you put it into a big loop ,it just powers it round with easy .Well Happy .A perfect model with a perfect engine .Think I might stick a 16oz tank in it the one that came with it is a little bit small Only getting 8 min max flying time at the moment which is fine but like to have a little more fuel in reserve incase I need it
I have a Wots Wot XL powered by a Laser 180 .I am using the fuel tank that came with the kit ( do not ask me what size it is ,I have not a clue ) I would like to fit a slightly larger tank in the Wots Wot XL ( I am getting about 8 minutes before I have to think about landing )Anyone out there can tell me what size tank would be good to fit in the Wots Wot XL that is power by a Laser 180 ????? ( 10oz,12oz etc )
|Thread: Battery for Futaba Tranny T10J|
OK so if a 2000mAh battery will last 1.5X longer that has to be better then the 1200mAh so it would be a no brainer not to put the 2000mAh battery in the tranny and leave the 1200 mAh battery out ????
The transmitter battery in my Futaba T10J Tranny needs replacing .The battery that came with the tranny is a 4.8 1200mAh battery .I have a brand new 4.8 2000 mAh receiver battery Would this be OK to install into my T10J Tranny or would it be best to buy a new 4.8 12000mAh battery to put in the Tranny .Do not like wasting money ,do not want to buy a new 1200mAh battery if the 2000 would do the job ???
|Thread: New Graphene Lipo Battery ?|
Anyone tried the new Graphene lipo battery that are coming on the market .They claim to last longer and do not puff up so quick but are they worth the extra money that they cost .Bit weary of claims they make just to get you to buy them
