Here's a real good website where there are some designs for free from McDDD,believe it or not he designed the 1st SPAD planes mostly designed for an OS FP 40,which unfortunately OS don't make anymore.

A mousecan muffler will make them spool up like an electric.

Re: A website for SPADS

In the last month, I have built 3 SPADS using the plans from Spadtothebone

a 60" Debonair & the 48" Das Plas Stick, both with OS .46 engines and the .25 sized SPAD Dogfighter. ( A few friends from my club fly combat with these and its great fun)

The SPAD Debonair is an awsome airplane to fly. This will be my third one. I did my own mods on my Debonair and I just absolutely love it. Built the wing with NO diehedral and I designed my own steerable tail wheel assembly to make it conventional gear (Tail dragger)

My next SPAD will definitely be the SPAD Extra 300. What an awsome design. When you see the finished airframe, Its hard to believe it made of sign plastic. It's a SPAD so it should fly as good as it looks!

Current builds: 1/4 scale J3 Cub & Neiuport 17 and KMP B-25.

Re: A website for SPADS

The guys in Dryden got together last weekend and had a combat build day for SPAD's

We built 6 combat and 1 spadett airframe in an afternoon.

Our combat planes are a 3rd Gen version based loosly on a saturday night special.
it's a 48" span strait wing, and a coro fuse.

I am still suprised with how well these things fly

Re: A website for SPADS

I find that if you make your own common sense modifications to SPAD's they turn out a lot better. SPAD plans aren't set in stone...
Happy SPADing
