Spirit from Great Planes


Not only is the Great Planes Spirit 2-Meter a successful competition plane, it's also an ideal R/C trainer, with a wide speed range and reassuring stability. The Spirit's modified Selig 3010 airfoil, triple-taper planform, and low wing loading all contribute to excellent thermal chasing capabilities and superior wind penetration.


  • The perfect choice for the novice sailplane flyer. Assembles easily, flies in a wide speed range, and is unusually durable.
  • Kit features top-quality machine-cut balsa parts and basswood spars.
  • Part quality plus Great Planes' detailed photo-illustrated instructions manual and plans simplify assembly. Any beginner can build the Spirit.
  • Two-meter wing features a modified Silg 3010 airfoil, state-of-the-art triple taper planform, polyhedral shape, and low 6.4 ounce loading for increased stability. Wing can be bolted on or secured with rubber bands.
  • # # Thermals very well and is designed to fly in speeds from slow and gentle to competitively fast. Beginners can learn to soar with the Spirit and later compete in contests with the same plane.
  • Can be built as a 3-channel kit with optional spoilers for landing control.
