I got my B and E Graphix Laser package today and went right to work. I tried Rapid Tac decal solution this time and it works great. You can slide the decals around to get them lined up just right, which makes aligning the stripes a lot easier.

Rapid Tac is not supposed to attack the glue on the vinyl, so when it dries out the decals ahould be locked in really good. We'll know for sure tomorrow.

One of the problems with Windex is that it has ammonia in it, and this washes the glue off the decal. Once I used way too much on a decal and it blew off it the air!

I dunno...never tried it. Rapid Tac is cheap enough and now I know it works and I sort of know how to use it. Like I say, We'll see tomorrow after it dries out. So far I am really pleased with it.

Anyone know where to get replacement CF landing gear for the lazer? I broke mine today and the web site does not list this.

It's there. Use the dropdown, and it's listed as Carbon Fiber Landing Gear.

I think every laser needs a xoar PJN-W.. It ties the package together nicely, well worth the extra seven bucks!

Looks good Tim, I'm anxiously awaiting the 60" Laser. It just might beat out my Edge as my favorite, Iike nice slow floaty High Alpha but a little more snap than the Edge would be a good thing. I know the big MXS is pretty sweet as well but I have the urge for the looks of the Laser so I'm going to wait for it.

Mine broke, too. I was able to fix it with some spare CF, CA and electrical tape. My 48 Edge broke in the same place, and I replaced it with a set of 3DHS Yak gear, which were much thicker. It was kinda funny looking, but worked for two years without a single problem.

I think they are way too thin down where the wheel attaches -- at least for takeoff/landing on my club's field.

Oh, and speaking of which, I got one flight on my new Laser today and it files just as good as my other one. This is a backup plane, so it gets hung up in front of my desk so I can admire it whenever i am working.

None of the graphics blew off, so I'de say Rapid Tac is the way to go on complex vinyl schemes.

Thanks ro B and E for the quick service. The vinyl package for this plane is really sweet.
