I maidened mine Saturday and have 4 flights now. As others have said it just flys nice and after the initial flight jitters put you at ease flying. Da70 with canister. Should have bought one sooner.

My Laser is still cranking out quality flights!
Here's a video of Neil Kapaloric wringing it out at Hoverpalooza this past weekend.

Just don't crash it. 3 months and still no fuselage. A main reason I went with EF is because I thought they stocked parts. Now I have a $3000 dust collector. BTW, the "crash" was a deadstick that came up short on the runway. didn't look too bad and didn't even break the landing gear although the entire center section of the fuselage simply broke away. So much for stock coming back in July.......

Yes it is the carbon/ply laminate EXP model. Sadly I've seen an EF V3 102" extra rip the entire bottom of the fuselage off on a landing that should have ripped the gear out at worst. Instead it destroyed the fuselage. Nothing in the way of the landing gear or landing mounts got hurt on mine. The entire center section that holds the wing tube broke out. You could litterally pull the wings out of the side of the fuselage still bolted together. No damage other then fuselage and one SFG. I love these new carbon/ply planes however there is so little structure inside that they don't hold up well to anything but what they were designed for. Hard landings not included.

Correct they are making them VERY lightly constructed and unfortunately they cant handle S**t outside of near perfect landings and pillow soft harrier landings. Ive seen it and experienced it myself with fuse structure exploding.

Just be careful not to blame the construction for S**t flying skills. I've really heard too much already about how guys equate a light airframe with poor construction.

Some guys need to have their planes built like furniture or they feel it won't last. But the most durable planes I've ever seen were 126" from kits built to 36 pounds dry and can last for decades as long as you don't drive them into the dirt. They are, of course, built to fly, not to crash. There are other brands that are two to three pounds heavier but still won't survive a S**t landing.

These planes are incredibly fun for those that can keep them out of the dirt.

So what? Bad engine skills maybe? Not sure what you're saying. Your engine quit, you had a hard landing that you expected maybe the LG to rip out, but when you damaged the fuse, the real problem was the composite ply? Now that's original.

I never blamed the composite ply. What I stated is that I have seen several instances where a light impact is turning out to be much more serious then expected. Not just EF but pilot as well. When the entire wing tube and center wing section breaks out of a fuselage and NOTHING else is damaged, that should tell you something. Well not you because you are so smart and know everything.



your insults are the reason this forum has slipped to the state it is in now. Calling people sh*t pilots serves no purpose but to inflame. Every other thread here is a screaming match where everyone is an expert at everything when in reality they know nothing. Flame me all you want, I won't pay it any attention. Unsubscribed.
