Ken nice flight report, glad the giles made it down OK
thanks for the motor info too, have to order it up so I can have maggie back in flying condition

Lou let me know your opinion of the coating, I have been considering glassing the Magister and Fat Albert, this might be a better option
I hope you get to feeling better soon

Adam nice looking plane

Scott that's a good looking plane you posted also
the deck looked great, very nice job, makes me want to get off my bum and finish mine

had an interesting development while working on the little cessna the other day
I was covering the rudder stab and I got one side done and I must say it looked fabulous, then I started on the other side, started out fine then when I shrunk it down and got it looking good the other side would wrinkle up OK shrink that side down and now the other side wrinkled up this went on for a couple min
some of you already know what is happening but I was at a loss
anyway even though I was using a lite cover it was collapsing the structure, it broke loose all the ribs and the ends were just pulling together, I think if I had enough shrink in the cover it would have become a pencil

so I removed the cover and I will add in some little gussets and try again
this has made me think I need to take another look at the rest of the build to make sure I don't need to add more reinforcements elswhere
