About this Plan

Spirit Elite. Radio control sailplane model. Wingspan 2m.

Revised CAD version by Alan Sinclair, 2021.

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Quote: "Thank you for purchasing the Great Planes SPIRIT ELITE sailplane. Soaring offers a freedom that no other type of flying can provide! With a little practice and some help from mother nature, you will be able to defy gravity and enjoy flights that can last for hours.

The SPIRIT ELITE’S wing uses the SA7035 airfoil at the root blending to the SA7036 airfoil at the tip. This combination gives the aircraft a superior Lift to Drag (L/D) ratio with outstanding performance in higher wind conditions. This advanced wing design incorporates flaps and ailerons to provide the ultimate in control when using computer radio mixing functions.

Take your time and follow directions to end up with a well-built model that is straight and true..."

* 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.
