Default Great Planes Spirit 2M Electric conversion by rip

10 years ago I started building from a kit a Great Planes 2m Spirit glider. Life got on the way and the kit got put away until 2 weeks ago.

Horiz/Vert/Stabs are done. Fuse is not started. Wings are almost done. Sadly I had chosed to make it a one-piece wing. trying to "salvage" the wing and make it a two piece now.

Here are the specs including the power system I intend to use:
  • Wingspan: 78.5 in (2000 mm)
  • Wing Area: 676 in² (44 dm²)
  • Weight (*): 30 oz (850 g)
  • Wing Loading (*): 6.5 oz/ft² (20 g/dm²)
  • Fuselage Length: 39.25 in (1000 mm)
  • Motor: Scorpion SII 3008-1090
  • ESC: Scorpion 15V 35A
  • Batt: ThunderPower Pro Lite G6 TP2700 3S
  • Prop 1: Aeronaut FOLD 10 x 6
  • Prop 2: Aeronaut FOLD 11 x 7
(*) does not include LIPO/ESC/Motor/Prop/Spinner...
