Imagine the Wright brothers looking at this forum. They would be astounded at what we can now do and what is available for sale.

So far my only experience with SEAGULL has been a LASER. There were some quirks to the ARF but nothing too bad IMO. It took alot of weight on the nose (ie. engine mounted as far forward as possible and a small amount of sticky-wights). Had an MDS on the front, it took a couple of rough landings until we figured out the prop/fuel combination that it liked.

Had a little time on the engine then tried to go up a little with the prop. Bad decision, flamed out and CRASHED, considering angle of impact, etc. very little damage, easily repairable. BTW I have seen others repaired in this exact spot, it's almost like engineered into it (like a shear pin on a PTO shaft). Fixed it and passed it onto a friend. My son didn't like the way it flew, too fast, but that is the way lasers are.

So I must say that I am impressed with build quality vs. cost of this particular plane. I won't hesitate to buy Seagull again.
I have heard people bash GP before, I wouldn't hesitate to buy them either, crashed and rebuilt plenty of them.

You see I am really good at taking off, just not so good on the landings.

I have been flying planes for over 35 years and I just had a very bad buy from seagull models. The 1.80 Extra 260. Very nice plane as tho I thought. After getting the bird ready to fly, I took her to the flying field with my son. Took off with no problems. Trimmed it out and all looked good untile I went to pull up after a turn. I am sure you no what was next. A very nasty, and I mean Nasty snap!!!. DO NOT! I repeat, DO NOT!! Pull up past half elavator with this plane!!! It will snap very baddly. Got her under control and did some minor adjustments and went to the air again. Same results! Very bad snaping and it flies like a rock. Not to impressed at all. Its to bad because it sure is a very nice looking plane. It is now in my shop with radio and engine taken out and will be ether a display model or will be disposed of. Sorry fellas, But I do not recommend this plane to anyone. It is a hand full.

I have one of these. At first I had a 15cc gasser on it, flew like a brick. Now with a .90 four stroke it turns out to be a very nice flying plane.
And it looks great, I'd buy another one

I find them easy to build and they fly well.
