Are you ready to move beyond the limitations of 2-axis "bank and yank" slope aerobatics? If so, Le Fish is ready to take you to the next level!

Inspired in equal parts by fullscale aerobatics gliders, the French VTPR phenomenon, and the desire for an EPP glider capable of unlimited aerobatics performance, this original design by Steve Lange introduces a straight leading edge planform combined with ultra-durable American-born EPP construction techniques that's a whole lot of fun for intermediate through expert pilots.

The state-of-the-art SB96V and SB96VS airfoils provide excellent aerobatic performance both upright and inverted. Fullspan flaperons make for a great roll rate and allow true "4-axis" flying for those so inclined.

Le Fish is extremely neutral in all axes and has great energy retention and significant rudder authority. You'll be able to do every glider aerobatics figure in the book, as well as many that aren't!

Never again believe someone who claims that "slopers can't fly knife edge." Le Fish can and does, and when given sufficient speed is capable of sustaining long and pleasing knife edge passes with nose-high attitude.

Le Fish incorporates Leading Edge Gliders' pioneering EPP construction techniques, making for a fast and true build that "falls together" like a kit should. When combined with "best practices" EPP build techniques such as the use of thinned Goop, Solartex, and Ultracote, Le Fish will assemble into an extremely durable slope aerobatics glider that can take the sort of abuse hardcore slope pilots dish out!
