My first Spad..!! the Dogfighter..

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I just took my Dogfighter out for my first flight.. It flew awesome..Just didn't land too smooth.

I am learning to fly as well. Did a couple of loops, got a little close to the naighbours house and his cows, so I brought the plane back to me. I got a little mixed up flying towards myself, touched the wing to the ground and cartwheeled the plane. I broke the tail off.

Oh well, another hour building another fuselage and back at it. If this was a balsa plane I was learning with, I would be crying right now. Only lost about $2 and 1 hour of time.

Spads are great!!!

The thing that I was told to get the orientation right when the plane is comming towards you is "turn toward the down wing".
