I designed the Simple Spectre as an aircraft of similar performance to the UltraSpectre, which although popular, was criticized by some aviators, whose desires were for less complicated airplanes. As a response to these desires at the time, I designed the Super Shark. The Super Shark was much simpler than the UltraSpectre, though performance was reduced somewhat. Compared with contemporary instructables at the time of this writing, the Super Shark has not been as popular as later designs. When I saw this low level of success, I began designing a new Spectre variant, based partially on the UltraSpectre. To ease the level of complexity in construction, I reduced the amount of cutting required. After some minor changes, the Simple Spectre was ready.
