I have built the Dave Anderson design LA 7 his plan had the gear in the scale location and used Sierra retacts they were also pretty close in scale. Installed them with no modifications and not have had any problems with nose overs. Powered with a DA 100 had to put 4.25 lbs up front for balance..


Patrick, I appreciate your reply and have seen the awesome Dave Anderson LA-7, I however, have the CY models ARF. I've just got around to assembling it, and before I complete it, I'd rather change/alter/modify so that I don't have to repair a broken ship later. I was unclear on the mods/repairs that a couple of people have done on here. That being whether their mod/repair was done for aesthetics, or out of necessity for stopping nose overs.

Btw, you had to add 4.25lbs using a da 100!!??? Wow, I was planning on making mine a electric, so I guess I'll start looking for rocks and bricks to epoxy in the nose.

yes, I have read the entire thread twice. Just seems to me that if you want a scale bird build it. Trying to scale a out of scale arf doesn't seem worth it. Just my opinion of course.

yep, short nose and I should taken steps to lighten up the tail end as suggested by others who built that one but I didn't .

All good job guys! will pass your comments to CYmodels

Again, Thank you.

Has anyone else had nose over issues or other shortcomings with the CY LA-7? Issues that I can address before completing assembly?

Patrick, I'm already starting to look into pulling servo out of tail and relocating for lighter cg purposes. Definitely helpful if I do electric, but even I do gas, because I'll be using a dle 111.
