The Spada GoFast is a good sized 3m (10ft) sports racer and aerobatic slope soarer from James Hammond's Aeroic company. Though at home in big lift it is also capable of great performance on scratchy days, and can thermal soar in the right conditions.

Aeroic test pilot Red Jensen wrote "I love it. No bad habits at all. Seems to do everything well, excels at high speed turns and acro. Slow speed/Landing manners are impeccable. No hint of dropping a wing. Can’t wait to get some ballast in it. Honestly, I think I’m most impressed about how hard it pings the turns even in the light lift. I was coming into the turn and banging it full elevator, and it just popped around and went right back out. No hint to flick at all and didn’t even mush, just held energy very well. Can’t wait to see what it does with some weight in it. I know it’s going to be awesome." Red is a very good and experienced pilot and also Runs NASA Armstrong flight testing.

James Hammond designed the Spada to be the follow-on to the Redshift F3F which was reasonably successful but could be improved with the experience obtained. Taking the useful feedback from the top pilots who flew the original plane the Spada was designed with a slimmer, lighter, stronger, bottom-loading fuselage. The wing design was also subtly improved with better optimized Optimum Lift Distribution (ODR) planform and low drag/High response aerofoil set. The construction was improved with harder wing skin layups and a double sine wave spar as standard. Also the new super light Aeroic carbon tissue skinned tailplanes keep the tail end light, creating a potentially lighter or stronger model with better pitch response. The result in a plane that is faster overall, accelerates instantly, turns tighter and has more energy retention potential than any model in the Aeroic stable. It is a pure-bred racing plane built to withstand the rigors of F3F or MOM racing. Spada is fast, agile, easy to fly and has no bad habits. Additionally it responds very progressively to flaps making it extremely easy to land.
