Laser test flight

I got 2 flights with the Laser yesterday. I spent some time tuning it again, only to find it was still rich at idle and now even lean at full throttle. After landing and making adjustments again I had two nice flights (one in pouring rain!) trying the N-09 schedule again. It really is a very nice schedule to fly and very well laid out so that the combinations are exciting to fly. I think the engine still has some potential and I suspect my pipe length is not optimal for the 18x10PN prop. I will try the 17×12 prop again to see what difference that makes in performance. I’m glad the plane is out of the workshop and ready for action. Sadly I won’t be competing until next season but now my A (laser) and B models (Saphir) are trimmed and ready.
