Skywing alternative to the EF Laser 91

I finally killed my Extreme Flight 91in. Laser. This has been one of my favorite planes and I already miss it dearly!!!


I was wondering which Skywing is the most similar in flying styles. Thanks in advance for all the positive feedback!!!

I had 2 X 91"EF lasers back in the day - crashed one and sold the other new once I flew the SW Edge 540 91":

The EF Laser has 1650 sq in of wing area and was just too big and bulky for me for the 70CC class engines.

If you like that - then there is nothing Skywing makes that's in that size.

All the Skywing airframes in the 60-70CC class are going to be faster, much more aggresive and roll much faster. They will not be as floaty and docile as the EF laser 91"

The closest you can get will be with the 91" Skywing Edge, ARS or Slick. (1450-1500 sq inch of wing area @ appx. 18.5-19.5lbs with GP76) If I were to pick one - I'd get the ARS - it's a one of a kind airframe out of all the ones I have flown in this class - great for hucking!

I was looking at the Laser and ARS. I've been watching videos and can't make up my mind.

All 3 are awesome flying machines. The roll rate on the sw laser is insanely fast..the ars isnt to far behind. Tails feel strong on all three. The roll and response of the sw laser was very impressive. If i were to have to pick one of three..mine choice is the sw laser. Also honestly once you have had a frame with the magnet system. Its hard to wanna take the time to put the others together. Lol. The axle system on a sw is awesome. No more wheel collars. Dont miss those. Lots of cool features. You wont be disappointed with a skywing if your looking to try something different. I have in my fleet currently from skywing the 100cc ars and edge and 61 slick. Very happy with them all
