Report from the owner of miniLAKfes self launcher, Justin Shaw.
This is what he shared in March of 2022:
I have been VERY HAPPY with the mini-LAK FES.  The ship has had minimal "mechanical issues" and is extremely sturdy, well built and reliable.  She is relatively easy to assemble and disassemble and the Sportine Aviancja manufactured trailer has been also very reliable, well constructed, sturdy, and fits the ship well. The FES system has also proven to exactly meet my needs and to provide what I had hoped for when I ordered the ship. I am able to self launch all by myself and fly anytime the weather is cooperative and my schedule permits.  I rarely have to use the FES to "save" from an outlanding by the few times I have done so (less than 5 times in 300 hours!) it has worked flawlessly. I wish I had the larger battery packs to provide a little more reserve capacity and climb performance but the standard packs and the FES systems works great for me. All in all, I'm very pleased with this glider. You as well as the S.A. and FES people should know that!
