Default GP Spirit Vertical Stab & Rudder Plans

Hi All,

Does anyone have building plans for the vertical stab and rudder on the Great Planes Spirit 2M Sailplane? I need to build a replacement one from scratch (long story as to why) but I don't have the original nor plans to go from. All I need is just a xerox of the vertical stab and rudder area.

Thanks!

Hi Ron,

I'm pretty sure that the tail section of the Spectra is the same as on the Spirit and I just happen to have an extra copy of the Spectra plans if you're interested. I can toss them into an envelope and mail them out to you at the end of the week if you want them. I had picked up a Spectra kit that came with an extra wing and set of plans.

You might want to read the modification to Spirit on the Charles River Radion Controllers it addresses the vertical fin and rudder that is marginal. Mark Drela suggests that it be enlarged by 50% if you photo copy it and enlarge it by 1.25%. Keep the same rudder hinge line the rudder you will have to remove some of the bottom rudder for elevator up clearance. also sheet the wing tips with 1/32 balsa. Joe
