Thread: Where are all the 120 four stroke gone ?
27/06/2018 21:14:00

Where have all the 120 four stroke engines gone .Laser 120 not showing on the Laser web site anymore .Looks like the OS 120 is limited stock only .Is it me or is the 120 four stoke no longer as popular as it was ,is this because of the new interest in the petrol engine ?I have a model begging for a good 120 FS ,my first choice would always be a Laser and then an OS but both are like rocking horse teeth , no Laser 120 and very few OS 120 FS on the market and they do not look like they going to restock them

Thread: How do you land a Freewing Venom????
26/06/2018 16:48:05

OK ,slow it down and neutralise the elevator .I wonder if I am landing it like a tail dragger and keeping to much up elevator on causing it lift of again .I will try that ,slow approach with full flaps and neutral elevator .I let you know what happens when I fly it next .Thanks

Have a Freewing Venom, fly great really pleased with the Venom until I come to land!!!!!!! It starts of fine lovely approach touch down fine then bounce ,bounce .I can not stop it from bouncing all over the place on landing ,to the point where it is going to self destruct it's self I have already broken the nose of twice .I have tried everything ,fast approach with flaps ,fast approach without flaps ,slow approach .foam wheels rubber wheels ,I have tried everything to stop it bouncing all over the place on landing ,it has got to the point where I am now going try belly it in with the no flaps and the wheels up if I do not it will not last many more landing .Anyone have any ideas on how I can stop it bouncing on landing ??????????

Thread: SEAGULL Bowers Flybaby 10-15cc -
19/06/2018 17:39:50

Fancy one of these and I have a spare OS 52 four stroke engine but I do not think the OS 52 four stroke will be man enough for this kit .The Seagull Bowers Flybaby weights 7.7ibs the wing loading is 777sq feet .Anyone have one of these kit and what engine will fly this OK .I do not want to put the OS 52 in it only to find it struggles to fly it.The recommended ic engine is a 15cc but I have never been able to convert that to what size four stoke that is ie 52,60 or 80 ?

Laser are worth the wait yes

15/03/2018 14:04:02

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
