The Lazer from Lazertoyz

This is my maiden flight of the Lazertoyz Lazer. It has a $9.00 motor, the plane is $10.00 and I am using a 3C Thunder Power. This is my first video posting so please let me know how I can improve the videos, constructive criticism please.

Jason,

The prop is a 8.5 and I was using the Thunder Power 910 MaH batt. The plane will also fly well with a 1320 MaH 3C.

Nice video! Thanks for showing us this aircraft, it makes me want to look into getting one. I have purchased from Lazertoyz before and they are great to deal with....very helpful.

Maybe, if your camera will zoom in it would help to see the plane from a distance...other than that a great looking video!

Thanks again,
Ray

One more question. Did the plane come with the motor mount or did you make your own? Thanks.

Jason,
I believe the motor mount came with the motor, I do not recall if I paid extra or not. I just double checked http://www.ncweb.com/biz/dan/Motors.html and it looks like they do not come with the mount I am using. I have ordered so many parts and pieces in the last 10 months (since the beginning of my flying) I do not recall if I ordered them from Lazertoyz or another company.

I like the vid - especially explicitly showing the throttle range.

I liked the vid also letting us know what the kit cost would be constructive and a link to the maker would be nice And maybe some closeups of your C.G. etc would be nice when you get your new cam Thanks, Jimmi

"Looks like I built it right."

Hey, it's a Lazer. How do you build one wrong?

P.S. - I love mine. Gonna get some more planes from Lazertoyz.

Video looked great to me and we even got to hear the motor. So many videos now have music that only the guy that made it wants to hear. Thanks for letting us have a break from that. Love that flying site runway it looks like it could double as a road if need be.

By the way, on mine I use a Welgard 2204-1400 with a GWS 8 by 6 on a two cell, anywhere from 350 mAh (25C) to 800 (10C). I can slide the pack back and forth to get the CG right. The plane is very forgiving, though, so CG is not that critical.
