The paints are inexpensive hobby acylics applied with paintbrushes. The bird has a number of issues that make it a handful, although I added about an oz odf lead to the nose that has calmed it somewhat. It is not that responsive to the ailerons. The v tail is much more effective. . I am not used to having to fly rudder and aileron at the same time. It wants to pitch up under power or in a turn and full down elevator must be used to prevent a pitch up and stall even with substantial down thrust. This is accentuated when to flaperons are set for optimum glide. The plane is stable in a glide but great care must be taken when flying under power or a stall is easily induced. It recovers relatively quickly if one does not overcontrol it.
