Default Which SPAD for beginner 3D?

I just started looking through this group as well as spadtothebone.com and find this consept interesting. I'm on my 4th plane now (H9 Arrow trainer - WM Skyraider II, Sig SE kit, and Venus 40) and want to try a little 3D, i.e. hoovering etc. The SPAD concept seems nice since I could quickly build several copies of a model and not worry about taking chances learning some 3D.

As such I'm wondering if anybody can suggest a good beginner 3D SPAD model for me?

I've already located a local supplier of the coroplast that will sell me 2'x3' sheets of white for $1.50 and 4'x8' sheets of color for $7.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

For a 40 engine the McDDD or Qhor 40 with the wing flat like the Spa3d
For a 46 engine the Spa3D
For a 60 engine the BigMcDDD
Get tornado props and use 5/32 wire landing gear.
They are all great fun.

MrGreenSpeed:

A couple of questions:

1. I don't see the plans for the McDDD nor the BigMcDDD on the spadetothebone.com site. I see a video but not the plans. Where can I find them to check the plane out.
2. Why is the Qhor 40 with a flat wing better than what the plans call for i.e. the triangular shape 1/2 in rise?

Thanks,

tychoc

to learn 3d with, i still think the Spa3dT is the way to go - they're nearly indestructible - and 3d nearly as well as the rest. Put a good 46 bb motor on the nose, buy lots of props, and you can learn to hover and torque roll with it, as well as harrier and flat spin, and most other 3d stuff thats not really precision based.

I've got either a Evolution 46 or a TT Pro 46 that I can use.

SPA3DT is a way to go. I second Chrisapadon that.
