While on the subject of alternate parts, I wonder if there are any plastic cowlings out there that will fit on the Sensei? What about the Apprenctice's cowling?
It's easy to make one with just a little effort. Model builders have been using plastic bottles and a heat gun/hair dryer for decades. You can use your original cowling or make a custom shape using a balsa block. Start with the bottom of a plastic bottle that will fit over you form, fitting as close as you can find, and longer than your form. Apply heat slowly and evenly and watch it shrink and take the shape of your form. After it cools you trim the open end to fit, open holes in the front for prop and air flow and paint to match. It will take some practice to get the best results.
