Default Need plans for Great Planes Spirit glider.

As the topic says I need a usable set of plans for the G.P. Spirit 2M glider. A little beat up with pin holes is fine. The cheaper the better and folded up and stuffed in a manila envelope for cheap shipping is a plus...

Chellie,

Thanks but I just picked up the kit local for $20.00. Everything is there BUT the plans. Couldn't beat the price so I bought it anyway.

Default Spirit Manual

I've got the manual for the two meter Spirit but the file won't upload. Might just be the size of it. PM me your email and I'll send it on to you......

Thanks but I have the manual, decals, wood, hardware, canopy and everything else. Not sure why someone would take only the plans from an otherwise complete kit. Oh well, that explains why I got it for only 20 bucks............

Then try here. This guy collects plans and the Spirit is listed on his list. I've got several plans from him and they were all free....

Dang, tried several times and the plans list only downloads about 10% and stops. I'll give it another shot tomorrow. Shipping from UK will probably be prohibitively expensive though...

I finally got the file to download just now but it says the Spirit plans are still available from the mfg so not available from him. I e-mailed Great Planes and I guess will have to wait to see if they still have them available. Probably gonna cost more than I paid for the kit if they still have them though.......

OK, I'm missing something here. He or even you actually have the plan itself? I thought you were talking about the plan list. I should have had my coffee before posting.

Joe, I've got a PDF file of the plan in hand, on my computer. It's available to you via email, for free. It's too large to post on this site or I would have done that. The offer is still open, but I need your email.

Have a good day and enjoy the coffee....

Hey Joe,

I have been looking for plans for the spirit too. I had posted previously on rcgroups but did not get any response. Just thought about searching again today and boy was I glad to see your post. Will it be possible for you to email a copy to me as well ?

Thanks

Might sound like a stupid question but I can't seem to find the 'thanks' button. I am really grateful to DEG for letting me have a copy of the plans.

You two are very welcome....my way of paying back for the help I've had and am getting during the over 50 years in this hobby. Most on here are very good at helping others when we can.

Enjoy the plans, build straight, fly high and get her back in one piece....

Have a great holiday season!
