Gulp G-ST-48 II

Just got a foamie kit from Steve Drake for a 48 inch foamie sloper with removable wings and plug in flying stabs. Goes flat to pack in suit case for traveling. Has any one built one of these? Having trouble understanding the build for the stab with bell crank etc. Any help appreciated ! ! ! Tom

Nice plane Tom,

Steve took it to Hawaii and loved it. I thought it might be nice for our local conditions, but the NACA symmetrical airfoil likes a bit more wind.

Have you asked Steve?

Gulp Build

Chip - Actually I asked Steve if he could do a quick build to essentially get the wing joiner and flying stab done correctly. Unfortunately he is very busy with family and turning out kits. I am looking for any one who has built this plane for any advice. Maybe someone who would be interested in doing the above build for a fee. I would then finish it up. Any one out there with experience building the transportable G-ST-48 II ? Tom
