Due to the overwhelming response to the release of our 48" Laser EXP it was only a matter of time before we released a 60 inch version of this iconic airframe. I am happy to announce that time has arrived! Fellow aerobatic enthusiasts, I am very excited to present to you the new Extreme Flight RC 60" Laser EXP!
Although the full scale Laser is a few decades old, it may truly be the best subject to model for what we are all trying to accomplish with our flying. When inserted into the EXP formula we wind up with an airframe that has a long tail moment, tall large volume fuselage, wing and stab very close to the thrust line, and of course the huge control surfaces that the EXP series aircraft are known for. What this provides is an extremely precise aircraft with minimal coupling that easily rivals the Extra in precision maneuvers, the stability and "floatiness" of the Edge in high alpha attitudes, and approaches the gyroscopic tumbling ability of the MXS!
Although the Laser has a 60 inch wingspan, it appears noticeably bigger than the other aircraft in this series due to the massive volume of the fuselage and cowl and the tall rudder. It feels and presents "BIG" in the air, giving one the impression of flying a much larger aircraft. The recommended Torque Revolution 4016T/500 MKII paired with the Airboss Elite 80 and a XOAR 16x7 prop provide tremendous power and vertical performance, and the Laser's large cowl openings keep this system cool.
The 60 inch Laser features the intricate interlocking laser cut construction pioneered by Extreme Flight over a decade ago as well as carbon fiber fuselage longerons, G10 reinforced landing gear mount, carbon fiber wing tube, landing gear and tailwheel assembly, complete hardware package, 2 Oracover color schemes, wing bags, decal set, and beautifully painted fiberglass cowl and wheel pants.
The Laser is a sharp looking aircraft and will stand out at the flying field among the more common models. Once airborne it is sure to turn some heads and provide the pilot with one of the most rewarding flying experiences imaginable!
