’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 flaps for better performance. Can be adjusted both in positive and negative directions. There is a connection to the air speed instrument than moves an indicator needle 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 with minimal pitching moment. Very effective. With full flaps and spoilers you come down at a steep angle. I used ½ flap normally, but if you land out in a small field full flap is useful.
Factory made rear tow out dolly. It is a wheel mounted to a vertical shaft that fits into a fuselage receiver. It makes ground 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 it together for the contest, week or full season, then just tie down . Offers full UV protection.
Home made tow out gear. It works surprisingly well. Bicycle tire wing runner and a small, clamp on wheeled wing skid.
