Gulp DS

Gulp DS was purposely designed with dynamic soaring in mind. It was inspired by many designs including JW and Bluto and is definitely not for beginners. Having said that, however, its flying behavior is predictable and the handling is as smooth as many ordinary EPP planes. The differences are the rigid airframe for dynamic soaring and the speed it can achieve! On speed run tests with many FG molded models, Gulp DS can outperform some of them.
