Is there a possibility that a LAK 17a could be developed?

Thank You. Another lovely glider to fly.
btw
Forward Trim range seems excessive.
Full forward trim with CG at -10 will exceed Vne (on AutoPilot with water),
while it seems a little nose heavy in thermals at most CG settings.
It still flys well though, nice work!

I honestly don't know. The real LS3a i have the trim about 2/3th aft. I'm about 20 kg below maximum weight so about in the middle of the CoG range. It pretty much trims itself between thermalling around 85/90 with flaps 10 or 5, and then glides to about 150 kph in -7 without really having to trim. With 90 liters of water it runs even easier. I think if I put full nose down trim in it would go a fair bit towards Vne. It is a spring trim system so trim full forward is stick on the forward stop on the ground.
