you could just order a buddy lights and then cut off the extras or have them cut it so that you can peel off tyrle extra stuff.

They cost me $199.00 to my door..

I've wanted a laser for about 30 years. I quit flying in 1988 because I couldn't get a decent one. The only good Laser available was the Bob Godfrey 1/4 scale, but the bare, uncoverered airframe was about $1400. The 0.40 nitro sized MK Models kit came out weighing about 6.5 pounds, so that was no good either.

I wanted a Laser real bad, but since there wan't a suitable one, I was willing to settle for any scale aerobatic plane. Unfortunately, there were not any good ones back then. I tried Caps and Zlins but they sucked. I even tried a Diablo, which looked nice, but it was one of the early ARFs and it weighed a ton. The same company later came out with a Laser, but it was an overweight pig too and I did not get one.

The Great Planes Cap was especially bad. I considered a Dolotel, but those were so stinking ugly I just couldn't do it. Eventually I ran out of choices.

After years of pattern and pylon, I was done with that but didn't want to go back to flying boring sport planes......... so I quit. I sold my stuff and went back to work as a divemaster, which is not a bad job in Florida.

Eventually I got back into flying again and really liked the electric 3D style planes. The E Flite Edge sort of looked like a Laser, so I went through a few of those and snapped them all into the ground. Utterly horrible.

I bought one of the goldberg Lasers, but when I got it home I found that the only way to build it with anything bigger than a 1300 mah pack was to actually build the battery into the plane permanently, so I got rid of that one quickly.

I went through a sucession of different planes and some were good, some not so much. I have basically spent the last five years looking for something to satisfy my craving for a Laser.

While it is not a Laser, I was finally satisfied when I got my first MXS. It was cool enough looking and awesome enough flying that I sort of forgot about wanting a Laser until I heard about the EXP version.

If you had asked me five years ago what my RC dreams were, I would have told you that I wanted to wear the Extreme Flight logo on my planes, and on my back, and to fly a Laser. I am so excited about this plane that I am really just trying to forget about it until it actually gets here so I can build and fly it. The wait was starting to make me a little crazy, so I just had to put it out of my mind.
