Thread: Laser Engines - Technical questions
14/08/2018 14:00:47

No I am not blaming Jon ,I really feel for him he seems to be the piggy in the middle and must be so frustrated at what is happening even more frustrating then I feel .What is Neil up to ,he has a ,to me the best four stroke engine out there by far but there are also other manufactures out there I am not prepared to wait around not knowing what is happening with he's engines .I need an engine now if I knew when they would be available again I would wait but there is no sign as to what is happening at Laser .So I have gone for a Saito 150b ,Just hope it is has good has a Laser but I was left with no choice .I hope for Jon sake every thing is going to be OK but I am not so sure !!!!!!!!!

Given up waiting for a Laser 155 ,just ordered a Saito 150B .What is going on at Laser ,it seems they are not interested in selling there engines anymore .You can not place an order ,you can not find out when there engines will be back in stock .I give up ! .Such a shame

Thread: ASP 120 or Saito 125 four stroke
12/08/2018 19:10:50

I would love a Laser but they are becoming very hard to get hold off !!!!!!!!!!!

12/08/2018 15:31:58

Really confused what to do .I need a good reliable 120 four stroke .Had settled on ASP 120 but just look up the details and price of the Saito 125 four stoke ,it is a bit more expensive then the ASP but it might be worth spending that little bit more if the Saito 125 is better engine ,Never had a Saito before but they seem to be OK and the price is not to bad for 120 four stroke but is it a better engine then the Chinese ASP ?

That's good news I am after a 100/120 four stoke engine and Laser are by far the best out there so I just sit tight and monitor the Laser web site then

12/08/2018 11:21:51

Any idea when or more to the point IF ANY OF THE LASER ENGINE will be back in stock .I am getting concerned about the long term future for Laser Engines !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Please tell me there is nothing to worry about .A modelling world without Laser engine that would be unthinkable .I would have to go electric

What is happening at Laser .I know they have just moved to a new factory but that was over a month ago and still all there engines are all out of stock .I hope things are OK at Laser they must be the best four stroke engines out there if they are having problems it will be terrible to loose such a good product !!!!!!!!

I have a Freewing Hawk and love it ,fly great.Once you get use to how land it without it bouncing all over the place on landing .Now I have found the knack of how to land it ,it acutely lands quite well .Had a debate down the flying field about what is the better Hawk some say that the FMS Hawk is a lot better then the Freewing Hawk .I have not flown the FMS Hawk so can not comment on how it fly but It will have to be good to beat the Freewing Hawk .Anyone flown both of these Hawk I would interested to know what there opinion is on which of these Hawks is the best one ???

Thread: What setting for charging NiMH batteries
16/07/2018 20:52:08

Problem solved .Not sure if it the correct procedure but gave up trying to charge the battery on 0.2 / 0.5 amps (forgot to mention it is a single cell 1.2 volt battery for a on board glow not a 4.3 receiver pack )Put the charger on 1 amp and bingo in under a hour it was fully charged

15/07/2018 22:42:53

Not having much luck charging up my nimh battery been on charge now for 6 hours at 0.5 ,still not fully charged ????????

15/07/2018 18:04:22

Change all my receiver batteries over from 4 volts to 6 volts and have started using my lipo charger ( set on NiMH setting ) to charge them .Been told to charge them at 0.1 on the charger but it is taking for ever .What is the best setting to charge the NiMH receiver battery ,(can I charge them on a higher charge or should I stick to the 0.1 amps setting

Now Laser have stop production of the 120 ,how close performance wise is the Laser 100 compare to the 120 .Saving my pennies to find a engine for a Seagull Spacewalker 120 .I am sure the Laser 100 should fly the Seagull Spacewalker OK ,just need to make sure .No hurry I see the the Laser 100 is out of stock so is the Seagull Spacewalker 120 (The Spacewalker 120 is due in about August not sure when the Laser 100 will be available no doubt Jon will let me know the answer to both these questions

Thread: fav model of all time
29/06/2018 11:05:17

For me it has to be the Flair D7 ,I used to build my models then until I became lazy with the ARTF.Yes I know I should go back to building but the ARTF are so convenient and the quality is a lot better these day

Thread: Where are all the 120 four stroke gone ?
28/06/2018 16:48:01

Not sure if the Laser 155 might be to much for the model I have in mind (Seagull Spacewalker 120 ) not sure if the Laser 100 would fly the Seagull Spacewalker OK ( I do not like a model that is only just flying due to an under power engine (not that Laser are under powered ) but I do not want a model flying around at a ballistic speed so maybe the Laser 100 might be OK .Over to you Jon

27/06/2018 21:25:37

Just look at the Saito 125 FS never owned a Saito so how do they compare with OS ,it will take a lot to convert me from Laser but if Laser are not going to produce the 120 anymore  might have to take a look at Saito engine
