Spirit Elite ARF

spirit elite in air

The Spirit Elite ARF (almost ready to fly) is a 2-meter, full-house, entry-level sailplane manufactured and distributed by Great Planes. For the money (around $120 at Tower Hobbies), it is a great ship to learn how to fly a full-house sailplane. I learned, so it must be a great plane! It is also very strong and with it's fiberglass fuselage, it might be a little heavier, but it can take a beating from a new pilot.

I bought mine never-flown and partially complete from another pilot. It has been a great plane, and I have learned quite a bit about soaring from it.
