Black Bubble Babbel Beast

Such a beautiful plane!
Clear canopy with all that WHITE has got to go...

Quick and easy solution.
I just grabbed my ole Testors Model paint and took a brush to the inside.
I used Testors Black Chrome.
Only took two quick coats in the evening so I could fly this morning.
90 bend x-acto blade makes cutting the hatch tape under the top wing very easy.
When I have a little more free time, I'll remove the canopy to get the glued edges perfect.

Caught an amazing dead calm morning with cloud cover.
Tore up the sky.
Last pack was nothing but touch-n-goes.
Rem would be proud!
With light weight packs, I can see how the Beast could be very good indoors...but a caged Beast is still wrong!

This plane is everything I was looking for in an ultra-micro.
Super lively on full rates.
Easily flyable off my front street as well.
A true joy to fly.

Quique & Horizon, You DONE good!!
