Gulp SR from Steve Drake

Details

At the August 2003 Soarheads bay area race, James Eichel prevailed by flying fast and consistently. In one of the more exciting heats, during Round 5, James scored another first after having a midair collision which knocked another plane to the ground. James was flying so fast, his Gulp SR still crossed the finish line ahead of the others and  ready for another round.

The SR-60 is available with lots of options such as: custom ballast systems, the SR-T which has plug on wings for easy travel or the "Lite Version" saving valuable ounces in light wind racing conditions. With so many other kits and custom planes being built for racing, the low drag design elements and stabilization tweaks the SR-60 has continue to make a real difference in the right hands.

This plane was inspired by the Gulp DS with the intent of building it lighter and more optimized for racing but also for dynamic soaring in light to heavy air. This plane is not intended for beginner builders or flyers!
