Perhaps, Jon, you don't want people to realise that the length of the Laser 200V, from firewall to prop-driver, is exactly the same as a bunch of competing OS engines mounted on an OS radial mo


You don't think it's more to do with what folks want to purchase,,

With reference to past comet about the trim in flight of my Stampe,,

The radio was on and elevator was trimmed in last flight so where you see it is where it is,,,

Also I have it lifted up on the rear mount screws on the top wing img_2464.jpg

For my two pennies,,,

A recent strip down of a DA 100 that had had two years off work, found two stroke oil had tuned more or less turned to grease,,,sticking the flappy pump valve shut ad also the fine round mesh filter was blocked with same stuff..

I had a MVVS 28, that would fire once then quite,,

I have both test tools for spark unit testing and a buzzer tool for the,,

The tools showed the pick up was ok as well as the spark unit.

I changed the spark unit out of desperation and all came back to life,,test tools hmmm more like a general guide,

Has it definitely got the original spark unit fitted ,,, not got mixed up with another

. Tried reducing the upper wing incidence a little but it does not make much difference. I can live with it.

Crack on and enjoy then

I use a pair from Rapid eyewere for general flying,, they have interchangeable lenses,,however if going slope soaring I use a pair from Lidi or Aldi,, they have a foam that seals against your face and you can remove the arms and fit a elasticcated strap, so you don't get the wind blowing across your eyes

Why worry about it, when they wanted a good four stroke they found you,,, can't recall it being lettered as G glow or whatever,,,

I Just known them as a Laser 150,,,

Could be laser 150P,,,, it's British you know,,,hmm now who used to say that ?

Why do we have to fall in with rest of world,,,, when they hear how good it is they will order it regardless of its name

Throttle response is poor,,,ok if altered slowly,,and low idle unobtainable, I have both needles out 2-1/2 turns,, suspect signal pressure is not god enough,,i may try the carb of my NGH 30 four stroke,, I would like a second nipple in back plate and a pipe to go to inlet manifold and a vent between front bearings
