Default My First Spad Questions !!! Qhor

Hi Guys

Hope someone can give me some info on this spad ive brought of ebay its an ARTF kit by the looks of it it cost a whole $10 so i thought it might be worth giving it a go ......... as im normally a 3D and Speed Freak

Is this a good spad to start with ? its got a 30 Inch wingspan any ideas of what the best size motor/prop to put up front ????? im really looking to have some fun with this one as a break from flying my others.........

Ive noticed alot of info on www.spadtothebone,.com which seems helpful but i thought i would ask u guys in the spad forum as ur the experts

My PQHOR had a GMS 47 on the nose, swinging an 11X4 APC, and it was a sweet combination! If you can get one, I'd suggest the OS46AX for the PQHOR; powerful and reliable.

If you're a true 3D enthusiast, this is going to be the most enjoyable $10 airplane you've ever harriered!

Let us know how it turns out, and don't forget the pics!

Blue skies,

The original Qhor with a 30"wing was designed for .20 to .30 size engines.[8D]
I had a skyward .28 on mine, it's a blast to fly.
A 46 would work great on the Qhor 40 or Spa3d[8D]

I think a 25 size engine would be good. see how it ballances and flies then if you like you can increase engine size. Spad to the bone is a great resource and should have all the info you need to get her ready. Should only take a few days. Good Luck
