  1. Question for you guys. How do you think 4500-5000rpm spinning a 32x12 will handle this plane? LOL!!!!

    Do not know the weight but 32 diameter at 5000 is some power if i am not mistaken if you could hold it up in one hand vertically it will just shoot up when you let go.

  3. I had actually forgot about the weight, never not weighed one before. So I just put it on the scale, 31.4lbs with everything but fuel.

  4. Here is a shot of me with the plane, maiden took place a few days ago and was uneventful. Flew like a dream from the start, very little trim was needed, slows real well for landing, well enough a few clicks of throttle and it slowly sinks to a nice two point roll.
    I do have a video from today but can't load it from home, in a little while I'll run down to Mickies and download it.

  5. Mickies did not work out so I started the download from home at 4:30 yesterday, around 4:30 this morning it finished.

  7. Got a few more flights on it today. It started four stroking a good bit so it is time for some new plugs and start the tuning. This Laser is a real nice flyer, glad I got it.
    Thanks everyone for riding along on this venture. Nothing left to do but enjoy the flying!

    I like. Yes that does sound a lot better than any two stroke. You have ended up with a really nice plane

  10. Thanks guys! I do love the sound of these engines and the power, this Laser will go vertical to the moon on half throttle. So I do believe in a couple months when it is time to pull this 140 out I will stick the Valach 120 in.
