hobbys,

Looks like your engine has the old style ST carbs on it, the ones with the twin ratchets

When I had it on the original UltraStick 120 I made a diamond shaped mount to move it forward so the carbs would clear the front top of the fuse, what a pain to adjust the low speed needles. Fortunately it needs very little tuning once set up. Even though I moved it forward 5/8 inch I still had to notch the fuse for the rear most muffler. I like the idea of the Irvines, now I'll get a case of projectitis.

Hans, a friend of mine has a 180 single and the 360 twin,both run great.I have flown the 360 in a Byron p47 1/4 scale I think. turning a 20 x 8 prop at about 7800 rpm if I remember correctly.

Do we know if they've started production again. I know they were having some metallurgy problems. I'm looking for a 300 V for a bf109

The engines in stock are shown on the respective engine page. They do not accept preorders for out of stock engines so you have to check the 300V page every few days or make it your browser start-page.
I recently bought a Laser 100 and it ran perfectly out of the box (even with the wrong fuel 10% nitro 20% castor).
They recommend 15% synth oil with 5% nitro.

A video of the engine on the first day running it (flight test starts at 4:20).

Did you get rid of yours?

The cases remind one a lot of the Testor's McCoy 40

Yes, I sold the 100 about 3 months ago, it was a fine engine but I had two other 100's.

I received the .90T yesterday, a fine engine and well packed, Thankyou.

Thanks for the heads up Dave . I had been holding my breath since I lost the post office receipt! You have a 5 year warranty starting now.
So , you still have a Laser engine?

A beautiful engine

I just gave a brand new .53 to my son
That 2.40 Enya Vee is a real work of art. Good design, and like all Enya, the best choices of material and first class machining. Fine castings, not computer whittled from bricks

Jonathan posted this on the British RCM&E website yesterday. It looks like some of the single cylinder engines are available again.

"you are a week late STF. A batch of 5 80's have been and gone, replaced by the 4 you see now and with another batch already started. The 4 180's i had a week ago have gone but more are on the way. So, if you need an engine now they are there. if you dont need one and are only buying it for 'stock' then shoo! go 'way!!

I am building engines, they will be available, there is no need to panic buy. "

It appears that the only single available is the 180, I didn't check the twins. No twins.

Default Topflight 182 81 inch ARF

I was thinking of putting a laser on the Cessna 182, I have a gas engine to fit it but love the sound of the laser engines, any recommendations on the size for that plane , we tend to go bigger here because we fly at just a little over 6800 feet, thanks

This is the latest engine availability notice from the company which should answer some of your questions.

Product Description

IMPORTANT NOTICE.Following our factory move Laser Engines are currently restructuring how we produce engine parts in order to speed up production. This is an ongoing process and may take some time to complete.All of our V twin engines are out of production and are not available for sale at this time. Once single cylinder stocks are under control attention will shift to the twins. We are working to maintain stocks of single cylinder engines.

70′s and 180′s are back in stock with new batches being prepared.

The 120 is back in production and a batch is under way.

155′s are out of production pending backplate manufacture but should be back in early April.

80′s and 100′s are being prepared in readiness for assembly once conrod manufacture is completed.

Can't see why you would like to get rid of your 70 Jesse, I've just been running in my own engine in the back garden.

It is an early version with low time. Be very happy to swap it for a Saito of similar displacement or, better still any YS engine.
