the Extreme Flight
am a huge fan of the Laser 200 and the late airshow
legend Leo Loudenslager. I always knew that at some
point Extreme Flight would have to produce a model
of this iconic airframe.
began discussing this model with my factory CAD
engineers last Summer (2011) and knowing that I
would be visiting China in the Fall of 2011 we began
exchanging drawings and ideas. My goal was to honor
the unique heritage of Leo and his Laser while bringing
the model up to date to match the performance we
have all come to expect from an Extreme Flight EXP
One of the last modifications that Leo made to the
Laser was to design a more streamlined canopy. This
canopy was installed on the Laser and flown by Leo
prior to his tragic death in a motorcycle accident.
I much prefer the look of this canopy to the original
and decided to incorporate it into the Laser EXP
design. I was never a fan of the orignal cowling
on the Laser. In my research I found photos of the
Laser Z230, Laser 300 and 2000 that had all started
incorporating a much more streamlined and "sexy"
I decided to incorporate this cowl into the Extreme
Flight EXP version as well. As such this model can't
really be designated as any particular variant,
so I decided to simply call it the Laser EXP.
all of the EXPs, the Laser excels at both 3D and
precision maneuvers. It shares the long tail moment
of the Extra and Edge which gives it great stability
in high speed precision maneuvers and it also features
that famous EXP elevator that allows for crazy pitch
authority and great stability in high alpha maneuvers.
the CG is properly set the Laser has minimal coupling
and is a very neutral aircraft. Experience for yourself
the latest incarnation of the EXP series aircraft
and allow your skills to become Laser guided!
