    GP Spirit fin and rudder dimensions needed

    I'm was recently given a partially built GP Spirit. The wing, fuse and horizontal stabilizer were built, but the vertical fin and rudder was not. My problem is that there were no plans in what was given to me.

    I would like dimensions for the values in the attached photo. Thanks for your help in advance.

    RE: GP Spirit fin and rudder dimensions needed

    Is this the Spirit Elite (2M), or the Spirit 100 (100ins). I only have the ARF versions, but others would need this info anyway. Good luck.

    I was able to come up with a fin and rudder design that will work. Thanks for at least reading the request for assistance.

        I've got a 2M Elite kit at home. If you still want the dimensions, let me know.

    RE: GP Spirit fin and rudder dimensions needed

    Antares100,
    Thank you for the offer, but I have come up with dimensions and a design of my own. I read on a post somewhere that the Spirit needs more fin area to help stabilize it, so I guesstimated demensions from photos and then increased the fin area by about 20%

    Thank you, Al
