My Graupner "Terry" is a mini-sailplane that fly's slow and easy. It's a lot of fun to fly! My "Terry" uses a the stock configuration but 7-cells instead of 6. A great flying plane that easily cuts through the wind.

My H.O.B. (House Of Balsa) TWO TEE Sailplane was inherited from a co-worker that built it 13 years ago as an I.C. gas plane but never flew it. I converted the plane to electric power before it's maiden voyage on 2/24/01. It was built very sturdy using a plywood fuselage and epoxy. The wing is made from balsa.
I was very surprised with the grace and lift that this sailplane had. It is relaxing and fun to fly. The 6.5 foot wingspan is impressive and the T-Tail design makes it very distinctive looking. Unfortunitly, the wing separated from the fuselage during a windy flight with a weak rubberband and was lost in the nearby woods.
