Artf -VQ Hurricane 63", Laser 80, flaps & electric retracts. 9lbs frown (8 1/2 + 1/2 lead) Fly's great although needs a decent scale take-off run but lands quite gently. Well not ripped the retracts/oleo's out yet.

Very nice Ace, looks the business and any landing without a nose over or the U/C somewhere on the runway is a winner!

And so the maiden flight took place today of my Warbird Replicas Lavochkin LA-7 powered by a Laser 80, what can I say, truly brilliant and great 'plane to fly. The vid is not the best as I used my old Mobius camera attached to the peak of my cap so the video is not that close in and it appears mostly as a dot in the sky but you can hear the lovely Laser 80! I'm going to get a better action cam (GoPro probably) to take better vids.

Glad you joined the party Jon!!!! (you're obviously busy with the multis!!!!)

Trouble is, the LA-7 just flatters the pilot, it tends to land itself! What a joy it is to fly though.

In the first flights it was very prone to nosing over if I wasn't quick on the elevator, booth on take off and landing. So I changed the flight battery from a 3000mAh LiFe to a 2000 and moved it back 20mm, those changes have certainly helped. Just got to come in a bit slower, but too be fair I wanted to land this flight quickly as I got several low RSSI warnings.

Wonderful! The sound alone is an advert for Laser engines. (Jon, you could sell a sound module for the leccy guys to put in their planes!)

It's a halfway house. Once they get to like the canned version, they will probably yearn for the real thing.
