Wow that's a lot of research work, Mmmm maybe add to mine at a later date though.
I'm having a look at the options for control set up, don't like the kit suggested method of a secondary link mechanism, I'm thinking of keeping it all on the main servo cross members, I can't see that this will alter the elevator control because I've looked at the recommended mount and its the same height only orientated vertically!! If I mount everything on the main servo cross members I have easy access should I need to adjust anything. I assume there’s enough room for the pilot seat because this is where the throttle and aileron servo are mounted in the plan.Rudder (left servo) Elevator (Centre servo) Throttle (Right servo)Thoughts?

Well I placed my order for Laser 180 last month, just phoned them for update on delivery and Geuse what? they're closing for a week ! that's what I call excellent customer service, so I'm now looking for another engine choice, Saito four stroke may be my next option.
) plenty of Saitos - from .30 to 1.80 and I don't think I've ever had a deadstick with any of them. =
The Saito 45 was between toclover and quarter flight for the whole flight, only landed in the end coz the light was fading and I needed a pee...
Stuey, can you translate the highlighted bit from Norfolkese into English please
NOPE NO LUCK.
It's a nice build, isn't it? BTW I (and am sure many others) have found the supplied wheels perfectly suitable when used with the sprung and damped U/C.Also I wouldn't worry at all about how much extra weight you put up front. Paul
Don't worry about it .I have several Lasers (addiction I think!!) all have the tank too high .The only problem I have is fuel Pi@@ing out of the carb if left with the throttle open on the ground. The engines run fine .I also have a 4 stroke type perry pump which I don't bother with now .It defiantly cuts off the fuel supply when the engine is stopped. IMHO they are an unnecessary complication. All I do is close the throttle on the TX trim after a flight, to stop the fuel leaking out of the carbAlan
