Default Help for a Spanish friend: what this word means?

A friend from Spain asked me the following question, which I don't know how to answer.

He is into control lines speed and he did read this article that mentions the word "stuppi", which he has never heard before:

".......crashed one lap after his dimed round but made 132.36 mph with his Super Tiger G-15 stuppi; Bryan Jackson also flew a stuppi with G-15 and recorded 130.81 mph."

Has anybody here heard about "stuppi" related to engines?

Thanks for any help.

Stuppi is a family name. probably the plane designer, because the G-15 is an engine.

Sounds like the name given to the airplane, like "Pink Lady" or "Eagle 2" or whatever. (PE, you snuck in there when I was typing)

IMO:
Super Tigre = ST = St-uppy
LITTLE - ST

Stuppi,  I think it referred to the nickname given to a particular speed plane design that people were using.

There is an article in Aeromodeller (-66) about a German speed design called "Stuppi". I'm guessing that's the plane they were using, with a .15 Super Tigre engine in it.

It is likely a small monoline A or FAI speed plane.  130 mph is pretty quick for an old Supertiger before pipes.  Most of the planes looked pretty much the same then, very small and a fairly big stab compared to the wing.

I too think that “Stuppi” may refer to a famous control line speed model. I find it mentioned in an old book (“Modelli volanti in volo circolare comandato”, edited by Aviomodelli, written by Loris Kanneworff, a great italian and international sportsman, manager of Aero Club d’Italia and author of some famous aeromodelling books, passed in 2010).
This Stuppi, realized by Rolf Miebach, reached the speed of 221 Kmh with a G15 engine (Supertigre?), a wingspan of 360mm, a wing profile Naca 65006, low fuselage metal, high fuselage balsa, balsa wings and stabilizer.

Here, by Google, a picture (with little differences from the scheme on the book):

I hope this helps
