    After several years of RC modeling use, the compact laser cutter from Full Spectrum Laser, is still going strong and has been almost maintenance free. If you’ve ever wanted to get a laser cutter for your workshop, check out this product review. This impressive, easy to used unit is designed especially for the hobbyists and small home businesses wanting production quality results. The 5th Gen Hobby Laser Cutter has a 20×12 inch work area and has a water-cooled glass laser tube rated at 40 watts. It is ideal for most RC model builder projects and it has several impressive features that are normally found on much more expensive units.


    The table-top 5th Gen 20×12 Hobby Laser Cutter & Engaver is the perfect choice for any serious RC model builder.

    The detailed review was published in the May 2015 issue of MAN.


    Quality CNC manufactured parts and optics


    The 40Watt Hobby Laser is very easy to run and you can control it with any PC or laptop.

    The driver program that controls the laser allows you to “print” you designs directly to the laser using any program that allows printing. That includes CorelDraw, AutoCAD, (or any other CAD program), PhotoShop and even MS Word!


    This job was done using Microsoft Word as the program.


    Precise and easy to use, the Hobby Laser makes short work of all hobby related materials from Balsa and Lite Ply to birch plywood, fiberglass sheet (G-10) and even cast acrylic material. From cutting model parts to engraving RC event trophies, this 40 watt laser cutter and engraver is perfect for any RC modeler’s workshop.


    Precision parts cut from all popular RC building materials. The original MAN review appeared in the May 2015 issue of MAN. You can also see the entire back issue article in the Digital edition of MAN.

    Looks nice. Would be better if the bed of it was a touch longer. Needs to be 24" long to maximize material usage but we could work around that. Somebody buy me one so I can start cutting the planes I have designed.
