Thanks Jeff It's flying now! and does surprisingly good even in strong winds.

Andrew took some pics of it some weeks ago...

But soon, it will be too cold to fly (for me of course), and I'll be putting the coroplast away, and getting back to serious balsa dust production.

Congratulations Stephane,

I would never have thought a SPAD would look so good.
I would never believed this plane to be a SPAD if you woul'nt said so.
Like uncle Tom say: Unbelieveable
Are the wings made of Coroplast too ?

Luc,

The wings are made up of 2mm coroplast, ailerons out of 4mm, two large sized paint stirring sticks for the spar

The fuselage is made mostly with 4mm and some 2mm (bottom of the fuse), tail uses 4mm. The coro is wrapped around a 1/4" ply firewall and two 1/8" ply formers. The cabane struts are 1/8" music wire, landing gear is 5/32 music wire, and the interplane struts are hardwood dowels.
