The paint schemes are hand painted freehand after drawing the pattern on the foam. The idea was to keep paint (weight) simple and therefore light. Just enough paint to help with orientation when flying. It is easy to build this plane light and it is all but indestructible out of 9mm EPP foam. AUW including battery is 5.8 oz. Thanks Leadfeather for an amazing design.
Nice looking Yaks Tony. I'm glad you are enjoying this design!
