Where can I go to find SPAD plans? The only thing I've built is a pizza box flyer. I'd like to try more.

I've tried Spadworld.net, it won't let me register. It keeps saying the code I've entered is wrong. And, spadtothebone doesn't work either.

Time to post a new spad

I built this for a Fun fly the local club today.
It flew really well and was a big hit with all in attendance.

You guys make such nice looking planes with SPAD, mine looks so ugly, flies fine though. Still haven't finalized the shape of the wings so haven't put any decals or coloured tape yet.

So far good enough for me to learn and crash on.

I still have no name for it, suggestions are welcome.

Here is the full build thread:

I's bet we all have made one or two really ugly ones, But sometimes it's the ugly ones that fly the best.
