Wasp Laser
 
Wasp-Laser
 
Made in 1979, the Laser was designed for the intermediate to advanced pilot and is suitable for competition, cross country thermaling or just plain ridge soaring. The machine took over a year to develop and this produced an intermediate glider with good sink rate and glide angle, so that when the winds freshen its excellent penetration will be appreciated. The Laser slices through turbulence with its cambered fully floating battened sail. Having no deflexers and a strong easy to rig airframe it allows the maximum time possible in the air.
