Default .20 size Spad

I would like to know if anybody can make some recommendations for modifying/scaling down an exsisting SPAD design such as the SPADet or the Demon planes down to say a .20 size plane.

What would you reduce the wing span to?
Fuse length?
Stab dimensions?

Id like to make a nice .20 size plane that is powered by a 4 stroke engine. A plane that I can fly in more confined places.

Thanks,
Ryan

Take a look at the SRR or HOR at
http://www.spadtothebone.com/freeplans.htm
They are .15 size plane a .20 should work fine on either one of them.

Just slap a .20 on a Spad meant for a .15, that's about it, you just may have to rearrange the gear a tad to make up for the extra weight.
