Rating Mr.
I actually bought this AJ Laser 230z 73" for my wife. She has both a gas and electric AJ Laser but she just sold the electric and decided she wanted another with gas. She likes the 73" size. Not to small and not to big. Just right. It's her birthday present so she gets what she wants. She has been flying R/C since 1975. This is the 6th Andrew Jesky airplane I have built (Osiris, Acuity, ARS-300 and Laser 230z (both 73" and 93"), so I knew what to expect and I'm never disappointed.

From the unboxing to my maiden flight, it has been great. Great packaging of plane and parts. Went together with no problems. First flight was a breeze, with a few clicks of trim and flies super. Mine is set up with a Rimfire 1.6 and Talon 120 amp hv esc.

Rating I Would Buy This Airplane Again.
As I sat down to order the 60" version of this airframe from AJ, I thought I would comment on this one. There always seems to something that needs fixed on these light ARF's and this one was no exception. With mine, the cowling and canopy had very minor issues after about a gallon or so through it. The screws on the cowling wallowed out as well as the front pin holes for the canopy. Gluing a very thin disc of hard ply on the inside of the cowling where the screw comes through took care of this. As for the canopy mount, gluing a thin fender washer to the bulkhead where the pins come through fixed this as well. Very easy modifications I made to mine to cure a few very minor issues. Several flights since, I have had ZERO problems with anything. I know it is all vibration related things that I'm sure are inherent with most single cyl. 2 stroke engines. Electrics would not likely have any issues like these whatsoever on this airframe. The build was easy with no surprises and the quality is 11 out of 10. I have found no vices with flight characteristics, solid in the slow and fast and all speeds between. I'm confident the 60" will fly just as good, so, I'm order it now.

Rating with out a doubt the best plane o have ever owned
I can fly IMAC with my 70cc stuff, but never really felt comfortable with 3d. Between Jake and Dean, they convinced me to try AJ. I called Tim up and he was the nicest person and really made me feel comfortable with my decision. he told me 8 cell was fine so I went with that. it really arrived in 2 days. the build was easy and I am not the best builder, there genuenly were no build issues. it came time to take off, and my radio locked out. It crashed, I called tim and he helped me with a discount so I could get it again. I took off and it needed zero trim. it tracks perfectly and is the most confidence building plane I have. with in days I was flying it on a soccer field up at school instead of just the flying field. it has more than enough power and is so fun. thanks aj aircraft and tim for the amazing plane. I will definetly become and AJ Aircraft Fanboy

Rating Great Laser
The Laser is great! Installed a DLE 35RE and came out with an all up weight of 11 pounds. Quality is outstanding. Balanced well using the recommended second servo in the tail for rudder rather than a pull/pull set up. No extra weight needed. Just adjust battery location to get the CG you want.

The AJ Laser is one of the best 30-35cc size airplanes I have flown. Assembly was easy and straight forward with good instructions. Just like the description says on low rates it will fly smooth and clean. Flip it to high rates and it will 3D like my bigger planes.
