Default Any LAK 17B FES owners out there?

Hello, I am considering purchasing a LAK 17B FES self launcher. I sold my DG 800 A a while back, looking into the FES technology.
Looking for more info from current owners.
Performance, room in the cockpit (I am almost 6'4" yall) etc.
Also, I am in Colorado, could somebody in this region contact me so I can come dee the glider?
Thank you.

Did you intentionally post your message four times?

The LAK-17bFES is NOT a self launcher, though it has been done once that
I know of.* The clearance between the prop and the ground is very small.

Of course he didn't - but it happens easily. The MINI-LAK is the self -
launching version -
www.lak.lt the LAK 17BFES is a self sustainer - but has

launched itself - but not licensed for this I think

According to DMSt Index list, the Mini-LAK is 103, and the LAK-17B FES is 117, and the DG-800A is 118 (see https://www.daec.de/fileadmin/user_u...-WO_2018ki.pdf ) . Mini is self-launch but significantly less performance.

The mini-LAK is a FAI 13.5m class glider - so very different from the 15/18m LAK 17.

Good morning David and all,

I am also considering the purchase of an FES equipped glider, sometime between now and 'retirement'. I am experiencing much difficulty in locating and joining this group, and wondering what I am doing wrong. Can anyone help me?

John
