Originally built in the Czech Republic as follower of the well known Lunak LF-107 in the 1950’s. The Laminar XLF-207 was the first European sailplane built using revolutionary laminar airfoil design. Laminar airfoil reduces skin friction drag and increases maximum lift capacity. From its beautiful finish to its three control surfaces per wing, this 4.4 meter Laminar XLF-207 is just as impressive right out of the box. The quality of this ARF is apparent. The fiberglass fuselage is finished in scale blue gel coat which matches the Ultracote covered wings and tail surfaces beautifully. As we have come to expect from Reichard, the balsa sheeted foam core wings and tails are perfect. The tail surfaces and flaps even have lightening holes for maximum weight reduction and responsiveness while still maintaining strength. Just like the full sized glider, the wings have split ailerons and one flap per side. The bottom hinged flaps that can be lowered to almost 90 degrees and combined with included spoilers for incredible braking force. The included hardware package makes this ARF a very complete kit and very fast to finish. All of the “Extras” like the fuselage servo tray, pre-cut spoilers openings and wing servo covers are finished and included. An experienced builder can finish the XLF-207 in just a few evenings. For the intermediate pilot, the Laminar is very satisfying to fly. With its large wingspan, scale HQ airfoil and camber changing ability this plane has a broad speed range with no bad tendencies. As you will see this sailplane happily performs inverted flight maneuvers as well. Whether aero towing or electric powered, you can enjoy hours of flying with this superb 4.4 meter scale, highly aerobatic model. With its fiberglass fuselage and its fiberglass reinforced, balsa sheeted foam wings this scale, very unique sailplane can handle full aerobatic routine. The careful use of composites with competition balsa, creates a good light structure that will hold its shape for a long time.
