Default Spad Insight (Pattern Plane)

I flew this plane for the first time tonight and she is just a dream to fly.

Power is OS .46 FX
Span is 58"
I don't have a way to weigh it unfortunately, but I would guess around 5 lbs.

For a while, I was estimating my planes weights by getting on and off the bathroom scale with them. Then I picked up a fish scale at Sports Authority for about $6. As long as it's accurate to within a quarter pound, that's close enough for me.

Winner of the Model of the Month at the club meeting. Then again, they had Three models of the month. A half built that doens't qualify but isn't a SPAD, a Big Foamy that is flying and isn't decorated (better known as a hurry up and get it there before that friggin spad wins) and a nice flying, good looking SPAD that actually fits the description of minimum requirements for Model of the Month which we deviated from when it started to be won by SPADs.

Oh well, it's a good flying Ship Chris, good job.
