i builted that plane for a buigginer cause im learning on my own and loving every minute of it.i crashed that plane 3 time due to lack of experience and then came home and fixed it under 4 hours each time .it looks like ---- but it flies like and i whent flying with my older brother wich is as experienced as i am and we hade a blast .this was our 3rd time and i was the second out cause we each take our turn. he olmost landed his but the front weel took to much of an impact and springed to much.not to much damage but a few drop of crazy glue will fix it right up.ME on the other hand,had a terrible crash.everyting was going great,i was going aroud my grandfathers 1000 acre weat farm till i lost sight of it.after walking about 5 miles we finally find that was horrible at firt site.the aluminium landing gear was all bended,the back top fuselage was splited in two.elevator was a victime of a 3 inches round maple tree as of my wing tha was splited in was a1 as of my .46 magnum motor that i just bougth last week.anyways a spad is the way to go for buiginers like me.after all of the my spadet will be ready for tomorrow if the weather permites

If you want that engine and radio gear to last i would highly suggest getting a instructor, you will also learn much faster too.

I have an instructor. But he's more of an impatient, never available type of guy.

Last time I went flying with him, he crashed my plane(B@�z@), which broke my horizontal stab, and I got no flying time at all. Fortunately, the first time I flew with him I got about 1 hour of stick time on a Ace Simple 400, so I know I can handle an aileron/elevator bird.

Anyway, when he crashed my other plane, it convinced me to go out and buy some coro and build me a Deb. I built 2, just in case someone else I know wants to join in the fun. I'm with mig here. I think I will have more fun learning alone, then with an impatient instructor. Thank goodness for spads.

I can relate to bad landings our spadet has had some trouble on final as well
they are one tough plane. I came in a bit off track and cartwheeled down the pavement put on a new prop fueled up and back in the air I know from experiance that it has outlasted my kadet mk2 about 20 times You can driver it in the dirt shake it of and go again no wood plane is gonna do that. plastic planes are here to stay
