    The LS7 did not enjoy the commercial and sporting success its advanced features seemed to warrant. Its intrinsically higher thermalling speeds proved to be a handicap in the gaggling environment typical of competition gliding.

    Based on LS7, winglets were introduced in 1991, yielding the LS7-WL. Many earlier LS7s were converted to this standard to cope with these flying characteristics.
