OK Guys, here's my first spad . A lightly modified Ultra Spad Stik, 74 inch span, 1140 sq. in. area. That's a Poulan 25 FL EX on the front that I converted with a Bambula 16x8 on it. Flew the first 3 flights today, VERY pleased with how it fllies. Very smooth flier, typical Stik knifedge (takes some work), but it does the COOLEST flat spins I've ever done with a Stik.

Well, it's OK for a 1st time SPAD. J/K looks like a million bucks! Sweet!!

How much does she weigh? Where are the stickers? I'll bet the Bal$a guys were envious.

Well, I did weigh it, and according to my digital fish scales it weighs 9lbs. 2oz. I don't know if I believe that or not, but that's what they said. You're right, I do need to get some contrasting colors on there, just wanted to see how she flew first. Since this is my first time at playing with plastic I guess I'll run a few test on some scraps with paint, monokote, trim sheets, shelf paper and anything else I can find laying around here
