Spirit 2M Sailplane


An entry-level sailplane that's internationally known

Named 1991's R/C Glider of the Year, the Spirit is the perfect entry-level sailplane. Easy to build and easy to fly, it's docile enough for beginners, yet can still achieve the high speeds needed for competition.

  • Great Planes' classic interlocking construction, top-quality, machine-cut balsa parts, full-size plans and photo-illustrated instructions make building easy

  • The 2-meter wing features a modified Selig 3010 airfoil, triple taper planform and polyhedral shape for maximum stability and minimum drag

  • Can be built for 2-channel operation or as a 3-channel model with optional spoilers

  • Smooth and graceful at low speeds, the Spirit can also achieve the high speeds needed for competitive flying

  • 1st place winner at the 1990 AMA NATS
