Eastern Ultralights Snoop +
Roll control by ailerons. Double surface wing with flaps. Presented at the Sun 'n' Fun in March 1983 the Snoop+ model differs from the Snoop by having a smaller span double-surface wing fitted with ailerons and flaps. Like the earlier model, it also uses the Cuyuna ULII-02 with a tuned exhaust. The options are the same as those offered on the Snoop. As would be expected, the Snoop+ wing is much more costly to build than a single -surface design and as a result the Snoop+ cost exactly $1000 more than the Snoop: $5790 in 1982.
