Ready-To-Fly 2-Meter Sailplane

spirit select main picThe easiest way to get in to R/C Flying!

Compare it to other RTF sailplanes in convenience, and it shines. Compare it for performance and it excels. Stack it up against others for quality in materials and construction, and it stands head and shoulders above the rest. Look for the best in all three in one sailplane, and the Spirit Select stands out as the easiest choice in RTF sailplanes today.

  • Virtually everything for flight in one package! Requires only 12 "AA" cells to be completely equipped!

  • Arrives with major sections already assembled, and professionally covered with Top Flite® MonoKote®, the #1 iron-on film in the world.

  • Included hobby-quality 3-channel radio and servos are already installed.

  • Requires no special tools to assemble—and no previous R/C experience to fly.

  • Thermals with ease and performs well over a wide speed range—as ideal for slow, steady flight for beginners as for competition-minded intermediate and expert pilots.

  • All-wood parts interlock for lightness and durability—generous Great Planes' hardware pack enhances strength and performance.

Start-up radio system
Convenience and quality! A 3-channel radio system is included with the Spirit Select. The receiver is wrapped in protective foam—and like the servos, it's already installed.
Slide-together wing and bolt-on tail group
The slide-together wing and bolt-on tail group simplify final assembly and reduce building time to the minimum. Control surfaces are installed and ready to go.
