’79 Grob G-104 IIB Speed Astir, 629TT, 40:1 flapped, retractable 15m racer, Experimental category with Komet trailer - $20,500US
This G-104 has adjustable rudder pedals to accommodate a wide height range. For taller pilots this is a must.
Adjustable flap for better performance. Can be adjusted both in positive and negative directions. There is a connection to the speedometer than moves an indicator needle in the instrument when the flap is moved. Simply adjust the flap so the indicator is aligned with the airspeed needle for proper flap setting
Standard Grob speed brakes. Easy to operate and they extend on top and bottom of wing so there is minimal pitching moment. Very effective. With full flaps and spoilers you come down like the Space Shuttle. I used ½ flap normally, but if you land out in a small field it is useful.
Factory made rear tow out dolly. It is really just a wheel mounted to a vertical shaft that fits into a round fuselage receiver. Makes movement of the glider quite easy. If forgotten it will fall out of the receiver upon lift-off, a nice safety feature.
Professionally built canopy cover by Ridge Sewing that is used for canopy protection alone or in conjunction with the full fuselage cover mentioned above.
Komet fitted trailer. The glider fits extremely well into the German designed trailer for secure transport. The trailer has an emergency brake in the axle.
Includes a full set of professionally made covers for the wings, tail and fuselage. Put her together for the contest, week or full season, then just tie down securely. Offers full UV protection.
Home made tow out gear, but it works well. Bicycle tire wing runner and a small, clamp on wheeled wing skid
