Just getting started.

Hi all, I'm a former flyer from years ago, and have just recently decided to pickup the hobby again. Thought it would be fun to scratch build a plan, and that's how I stumbled upon S.P.A.D. planes.... I was curious about the gutter pipe and now I'm not sure if I'm using the right one or not... Looking at some of the pictures that have been posted I noticed that most of the ones are square, and have flat sides.... The kind I'm using however is more rectangular with rounded corners and ridged sides like a down spout.... Not sure if this is the right stuff or if this will effect the plane once completed.... Any thoughts?

You CAN use the rectangular stuff but use it with the long side for the top/bottom.

Easier tho using the square (less stuff to use to pack the tank tight). Get it at Home Depot or Rona.

Fying ability is the same either way.

Visit my site for gluing (and other) tips for S.P.A.D.s

Home Depot in my area only has the rectangular stuff. I live on the Montreal's south shore, and the only place I've ever been able to find square stuff was at Rona.
Pilot: Test Flight Ok, but Autoland is very rough.

drain pipe

I found some square at my local home building centre white or brown. $10 for 10 feet. Of course I took the white.
