2 meter sailplane with spoilers


Mystery ( so far)sailplane with old style Airtronics 94102 servos in it. Remember back in the day when servo connectors were not yet universal?
Behind the nose block there is a plywood bulkhead that looks like it might have been an electric motor mount.
It is a 2 meter sailplane and was built from a kit. Definitely NOT an arf I am thinking 1980s vintage looking closer at it.

I will try and take some better closer pictures and see if I can figure out what it is. Maybe an Old Airtronics kit?

May be a Gentle Lady or something like that, but it's not a Phasor. I built 2 of them and this is not even close...

I stand corrected and will edit the listing. I have plans for the Phasor that came with it. I didn't look as close as I should have.
It is not a Phasor.
But its not a Gentle Lady either. I have built a bunch of the Gentle Lady for myself and friends.
I will do some more research on this and see if I can determine what sailplane it is.

I also just ran across the plans for an Aquilla Sailplane. Its not that either.

Great Planes Spectra (similar to Spirit) with a plastic nose cone instead of an electric motor.

looking closer at the area where the front wing hold down dowel where the wood sweeps up does look like a Spirit or Spectra as a possibility. Built as a non powered instead of electric sailplane.
