Default For Sale: 1977 LS3 (USA)

Aero Club Albatross (ACA) is excited to offer our 1977 Rolladen Schneider LS3 “El Bondo” for sale. This highly-tuned racing machine has been fully “Templinized” in the ACA Skunkworks. Major modifications include:
- Extensive micro-turbulation across all flying surfaces and, importantly, the fuselage. Drag reduction has been speculated at in excess of 4% throughout the majority of the flight envelope.
- Low visibility matte finish provides optical and electronic stealth for reduced conspicuity in large gaggles.
- Electronics have been randomized using a proprietary intermittent continuity module, eliminating annoying leaching by other FLARM users.
- Mechanical systems have been damped extensively with a nano-technology iron-oxide coating providing optimal feel and the ability to easily maintain bank and pitch with minimal control inputs.
- Shiatsu massage mode (available at true airspeeds in excess of 110 kts).

This sailplane is offered with many extras at no additional cost including:
- A vintage sealed lead acid (SLA) power source.
- 1979 Westerboer vario with 17 in-flight adjustable dip switches.
- Approximately 16 feet of Velcro attach points allowing for optimized placement of supplemental instrumentation.
- Pre-stained cockpit interior.

Any reasonable offer in excess of $50,000 (USD) will be carefully considered.

Note: Completely restored (zero-timed) Komet trailer available for purchase separately.

PM me to make an offer.

The prestained cockpit option is $5k alone! If it just had the glazed canopy option I’d snap it up.

Does "Templinization" include filling the tanks with Busch Light for the sale?

Ah, so "non factory installed modifications". That should require a handicap adjustment. :-)

Great contest, Daniel! Congratulations!

Prestained cockpit? I thought the ad said "pristine". Oh, well.

Actually, ACA has extensive experience with canopy modification including but not limited to:

- Supplemental ventilation.
- Optical characteristic adjustment.
- Complete removal (in flight).

Let me speak with the engineering team and see what we can do. IIRC there's an old bottle of DOT 4 brake fluid in the cabinet which may be just the ticket.
