Heavy metal (not really ) Phantom
3 Attachment(s)
Ok folks , since my phantom is partially covered in pop cans ,I thought it could perhaps achieve non foamy status . The pop can sheets once the end caps were removed came out to .16 of an ounce each . I used about 6 pop cans so with 3m adhesive not more than a couple ounces I would think .This all started after a crash and I covered it to hide the nasty crash damage . This thing is going back up with a BL32 Changesun 10 blade and 6S . :) I'm pondering changing the tail to an all moving tailplane and covering it as well . I'm a bit of a rivet addict .

Here's a sheet of popcan AL on the gram scale . 4.6 grams or .16 of an oz . Comments are welcome by the way ..

Why not just use aluminum ducting tape or flight metal?

I've got tape on parts of it . The aluminum hides the damaged cracked areas , which looked awful , without even sanding them . The tape would have shown all the cracks.I find all the dings on a foamy get transfered right through the tape so it would end up looking rough pretty quick as well . The can aluminum hides all the foam beading or flaws completely . Plus the aluminum sheeting looks way better than the tape up close. This is actually practise for another plane .

Talking about heavy metal, there's deffinitelly no one to match Black Sabbath with Dio orTony Martin. Have a good listen, sounds just about as good as my metal/foam combo I'm working on, Joe.

Might do Stoneenforcer, first I want to see if it flys ok after the current repairs before spending more time on it .Perhaps I'll start at the front and work my way back .

Could have used liquid sheeting, easier (maybe):eek:
