Rocker, at this size there is no debate in my mind, Laser is my No 1 choice.

I still not sure if I might be better waiting ,if Laser are going to bring out a petrol engine should I hang fire a bit .I do fancy a petrol engine,it seems that that is way a lot of modelers are going it just that I have always used glow engines and I do like the big four stoke Lasers ?

To an extent I was like that, all of my large ‘planes are petrol powered 30cc and above, mainly by DLEs and I really like them but they can be noisy. So, when it came to the Wots Wot XL I had a choice to make, another gasser (and I had a spare DLE!) or a Laser v twin. No contest as I just love v twins so the 160v was my choice even though I had to wait 12 weeks for it! Do I regret it, not one bit, the sound alone was worth the wait. Now I’ve got an 80 for my Lavochkin and want one of the petrol 180s when they are available plus a 240v as I have a home waiting for one of those bad boys. I have also told Jon that when they produce a radial I’ll have one of those too as, for me, that would be the ultimate, well tbh the ultimate would be two of them powering a Tigercat, utopia!

Most of the above is off topic, for which I apologise, but Rocker, to answer your question in one word, wait.

Rocker if you like i can put you on the list for one of the pre production 180 petrols as i still have some theoretically available and the WW would be an excellent mount for further testing it in an aerobatic situation. I was hoping to have them ready before Christmas but that is not going to happen so its going to be early new year.

I am itching to get them done as i need the feedback to confirm everything is 100% before going public.
