I pulled my Monocoupe out of storage today... It hasn't been flown in years and probably has doubled its weight collecting dust.

I'm going to spend this weekend cleaning it up and getting her ready to fly again

Get that poor thing cleaned up

My build is almost complete, just received my light covering from the world models yesterday.
The HK park 300 motor didn't work out, it is impossible to reverse the shaft without damaging the motor or the shaft, just scrapped it. Ordered up the Emaxx motor and it is a much better option mounting wise.
Decided to go with trim scheme #4 in red and white, waiting to hear back from Zeke as to the process for getting him to cut my trim, guessing I'll have to wait until after Joe Nall...not a problem as the weather is getting much better here and should be flying regularly from now on.

I thought Zeke had sent her the files sized to the Monocoupe.

Iím assuming Callieís Graphics are pressure sensitive, peel-n-stick, and not water slide decals, correct?

Iíve decided on my colors and have purchased a roll of UltraCote Green (which is more of a dark teal) and UltraCote, ParkLite Cream. Iím leaning towards schemes 1 or 2, with green being the prominent color. with option ďAĒ (straight) for the trim. Am I to understand Callie is capable of matching the color(s) of my covering if provide small samples or, did I dream that and itís just wishful thinking on my part?

Guys, is it my imagination or am I seeing varying degrees of dihedral angles on the Monocoupe full wing versions. If so, I’m assuming the non-aileron version would have slightly more.

You are correct. The standard wing (no ailerons) has more dihedral.

Took my Coupe out last weekend for the first time in a while. Had to replace the geared Feigao system as it was not running properly. Replaced it with an E Flite Park 300 on the same prop and battery. Never missed a beat. I have the aileron/flap wing and she is a great flyer.

Zeke, bigger one!!
