A development of the 10m. straight wing LO-100 aerobatic glider, the LO-150 features a two- piece, plywood covered, single spar wing and uses flaps for glidepath control. The fuselage is a wooden monocoque with a cantilever tail. Early models had a skid and jettisonable dolly instead of a fixed main wheel. A.J. Smith won the 1961 Nationals in a LO-150 and Harold Jensen flew another 700 km/ 435 miles. To win the 1962 Barringer Trophy.
