Quote: "Versatile Sailplane Performance made affordable. The Spirit 100 combines the best features of the original Spirit with innovations usually found only on high-performance, high-priced sailplanes. Two wing options provide flying enjoyment for beginners, as well as advanced pilots.

The Spirit 100 can be built with either of two wing options. The first wing choice features a Selig 3010 airfoil and spoiler option - perfect for beginners and intermediates interested in a wide speed range. The second includes flaps, ailerons and a highly-efficient Selig 7037 airfoil for the advanced performance that experienced pilots demand.

Great Planes' interlocking parts and step-by-step, photo-illustrated instructions (including instructions for ailerons and flaps) assure easy assembly of either wing - even for beginners. Canopy, molded cockpit and hardware are included..."

* Credit field

The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.


This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
