They are a relatively new outfit. They have an 'ARF' for 33 bucks... I figured I'd give it a shot, has anyone else?. http://www.spadflyer.com

Frost,

I didn't buy the kit but I have purchased several individual items from them. I used their wing with my own fuse for a plane and bought one of their fueses (40" gutter pipe) to go with a wing that I am building. I also bought some firewalls because I don't like making them myself. Both orders that I placed were sent right away and well packaged.

Well mine is supposed to arrive in a day or two (quite fast) and I will try to get some pics up for folks to see.

What did you think of their wing(s)?

I bought the SpadFlyer kit (48" ws, 40" fuse) last year. The wing, fuse and tail components were all pre-made, all I had to do was assemble it and put in the controls. Kit was very complete - all it needed were servos, motor, reciever, control rods, and wheels (I also added a Drubro tail wheel). The plane is great for training and will also do some mild aerobatics - rolls, loops, inverted. Flys great. I used a K&B .45 Sportster so it has some power. Highly recomend the product - was shipped fast and well packed.

A buddy of mine had one their planes and it was a very well designed kit. It flew great and was a great trainer. A equipment malfuntion sent it into a ditch but still it is a great flyer and one hell of a deal.

I fly with the guy who sent you the semi-symmetrical wing here in Oklahoma. I had him buy one through you for me so my wife wouldn't find out i bought another plane. so far she hasn't noticed it sitting on my work table.

Just thought I'd pop in since it appears the SPADFlyer owner watches

I was going to order from you, and asked lots of questions, still may eventually but money ran out, and then a kind spadder from CA sent me all the fixings for a Debonair, an SPADStick, and an engine. I Am assembling slowly, see my thread on it.

Anyhow, didnt want oyu to think I was a flake qnd just vanishing on you!

Adui,

I'm glad you are getting going. The way you do it isn't important, as long as you start. Happy building and flying.
