Thought it worthwhile to start a new thread and pull together all those like minded people wanting Richard to do a new batch of 63" La7s. Not sure how many he needs to but let's make ourselves known.

I suggest you ask one of the mods to alter the title of your thread to "Who wants one - Warbird Replicas Lavochkin La7 kit?" or something similar, that way you may get more positive answers. Best of luck!

63 inch La7 with an 80 or 90 4 stroke? yum yum...

Good idea Matty.

Any mods looking in who could oblige please and change the title to " Who else wants one - 63" Warbird Replicas Lavochkin La7 kit?"

Got one, brand new unopened kit. When this whole group of threads started up and Richard explained the difficulties, I thought, I'd better get something quick. I went onto his website and the La 7 was available, nothing else was, so I bought it. I now have the Bf 110 too. And a Traplet Bouton Paul Defiant semi kit that somehow snuck in, I reckon I've got enough to build for a while!

Is there a build thread for the 63" La7 somewhere?

The current thread is for the smaller 57'' version.

I PM Richard some while ago to say that I would also be up for one, lets hope we can get enough for hi to make a viable run.

I do believe that Richards calculations for the price was based on a batch of 10 units.
I don't know how many we got on the list at the moment.

Joakim, According to my list there are 6 of us who have shown interest. Just a few more to go. I'll contact Richard and see if he has had any direct contact.

spoke to Richard a few weeks ago, he said that ten kits is a good number, if we can persuade him to run another batch, I will happily put down a deposit before he starts. ps if you contact him again ask about a yak 9 kit

Just to rekindle interest here, I might invest in this engine for this model.

Here is my 57" version converted to petrol with an NGH 9cc engine and E ignition, and petrol pump.

It's gone a bit quiet on here. We only need another 4 to hopefully get Richard planning another batch pf La7's. Come on fellas, what can we do to get you interested?

Well done Richard, have been flying my La7 for two weeks now with total success. Took it down to my club, put it on the grass and got a chorus of "don't like those pointy wings, bet it tipstalls like mad,etc etc"., so being a coward I let our Chairman do the test flight, as he is by way of being our best flyer and does most test flights.

After a very extended first flight I managed to get it off him with the comment "I would never have expected that from such a powerful looking warbird, it flies just like a low wing sports plane".

Pass the message around and see if we can generate enough interest to get Richard to do a batch of the larger version.

Well said Peter. I thought people would jump at the chance of getting one of the larger ones but it seems not. A mate in one of the clubs that I fly at says he wants one as well so the list is at 7 now. if you want a larger one that makes 8.Nearly there.
