Fast, long range and simple, the Turbo Spectre
is a durable paper airplane designed to replace the popular but obsolescent Strike Spectre
When the Strike Spectre was designed, skids and landing gear were not standard on my aircraft. In the time since its publication, these features have become among my largest requirements for almost all of my paper airplanes. As a result, for some time I classed the Strike Spectre as an outdated design, in need of a successor. More recently in the summer months of 2012, the Strike Spectre--an 18 month old design by this point--garnered a surge in popularity. In addition, I also wished for a simpler design to follow the fairly intricate Sparrowhawk
. After some consideration, I designed and prototyped the YA2-13, with excellent results. The prototype flew wonderfully, and it was assigned its instructable slot.
