I agree that the spirit is a great kit.

Now, from me that is kinda funny because my Spirit started as a RTF Spirit Select. However shortly after getting it I picked up a Spirit kit for about $20 that I planned to keep for spares, or perhaps to build a modified wing.

A month later I crashed bad off of an attempted winch launch. Ended up building a new fuse from the kit. Never built a kit before. Fuse was EASY!

Had to fix one wing. Used rubs from the kit, leading and trailing edge. Plans and instructions were great! All locked together nicely.

Three months later, ended up building a completely new left wing. Went together real smooth.

So, I never built a kit, but my RTF plane is almost completely replaced from a kit, so I guess it is a kit plane now.

It flies great! I love the spoilers too. I have been getting better and better with it at the club contests. Make landing points most of the time. I can land this one better than my full house 3M plane.

The Spirit is still my favorite sailplane.
