Meet the New! Gulp DS II 

It 's Leaner and Quicker

A 2" longer and 1/2" narrower fuse presents a smaller profile for a faster top end. A new airfoil is still based on the MH45 but has a new entry which brings it on step sooner

More performance, no sacrifice is durability and the same cost to build

These beautiful examples were built by Shane Biddlecombe and Mike Young. That soft wind blown grass is at the Mickeys slope of Bwlch South Wales

Gulp DS built by Bob Miller

The Gulp DS was inspired by the many designs from Harris Nelson, the JW from Pat Bowman, and input from friends. This plane is not intended for first time builders or flyers! If you have built and flown a foam wing like a Zagi or Boomerang, then you should be able to handle building and flying the Gulp DS. The Gulp kit will take your skills to an advanced level of model building and flying.
