Default 1st SPAD

Hi there, I'm new in the RC airplanes, as i said in other topic i just meet the flying gang so I'm not alone, but all of them uses balsa planes, so there is no SPAD specific info.
I got a PT and a O.S. Max .40LA.
I would like to try a SPAD because a balsa crash afraids me, but I´ve read that my engine would be under power.
I can only get 4mill coro (no RNAF) and NO GUTTER pipe.

Please help because I'm confused I think these are my options the buhor, Spadet or a Deb:
*Scale down(which %).
*Build coro fuse.
*Build a Tail dagger(all 4 mill).
*Build any plane of these, same as the plans.

In other words I have the OS max .40LA, only 4mill coro, NO GUTTER PIPE, what should I build for the 1st SPAD.

check out the designs that use uchannel. There are a few trainers that use the u channel rather than gutterpipe

Friday night special. use a coro fuse instead of downspout. no landing gear is used (hand launch) so it'll be lighter still. your 40 will be fine. 11x6 or 10x8 prop.

You could order the gutter pipe and have it shipped to your location. There are a couple of different suppliers who will cut it and ship it to you. Just do a search for gutter pipe or down spout. Try this link:
