Alfa Lavochkin LA-7

Look what I got today...he,he,he. I'm am very excited, she is just beautiful. Man I LOVE these Alfa kits . The kit comes with four different decal markings. I already decided on Major I.N. Kozedub, markings.
Love the camo on it too. Hats off to Alfa again for making a beautiful plane.

Cuban08,

Yup. I really like this one. I'll be putting in my order for one of these soon too.

So what do you plan to power it with?

I was thinking of putting a Mega 16/15/8 DD in it or a Razor 350 in a MPJet 5:1 GB.

nice looking plane! let's hear how she flies when you've had a chance. I have yet to buy one of those Alfa planes, but this one has me almost convinced. I was rather impressed by the flying video on HL's site. what motor/battery are you planning to put in yours? good luck on the maiden. =)

Thanks guys,

I wanted to put an MPjet 25-35 , with 3s TP, but it is not available till april. I have an MPjet 280 4:1 gearbox , and a Himax 2015-5400, with me now. I just finish putting the motor and gearbox together, but the screws that came with the motor are making contact with the rotating gear, so I have to go with tapered screws . I'll see if I could pick a pair tomorrow at my local hardware store. This might be just a temp setup for now.
I have a razor 350,a 400,and a 2500 that I could use too.

I will keep posting, as I go along, and hopefully be ready to maiden , by next week.

Great plane, I've been thinking about grabbing one to offset my heavy GWS fleet. Give us a report when she's in the air.

Ive got a razor 2500 in my P47, 5:1 GB. Wish I had your gearbox, but lets just say it scoots, and glides like a charm.

Whats up with the MPJet 25/35-20 on the HL site????? I just checked on it because you said it was out of stock. They no longer have the picture up, and all the links take me to the 25/25-26. It hasn't been discontinued, has it?

Don't know. I noticed that myself today when I checked there site. I did place the order last friday and the 25-35 was there, and it was not available till April. But I do have the receipt from HL showing it backordered.
