Help!

I am in need of a covering job on my gas 88" Extreme flight RC plane. I have need to recover the bottom of the fuse. I tried it once but it did not hold and after another brush with the trees. It now needs the whole bottom covered. It is only one color. Mainly just over the Pipe tunnel. There is no structural damage just the covering. Here is the kicker.. Ill be out of town Friday until the 18th. Then I am hoping to go to a funfly the following weekend. So I need it repaired ASAP.

Dangit.

I have a full bench right now in prep for HAEFFI but will let you know what I get through in the next week. I really don't mind knocking out the covering job one evening and can git r done well, I just got to find the time. Repairing is tedious, covering I find nearly therapeutic.


Hopefully someone can step up and knock this out though, as I cannot commit I can do it in time. Touch base with me if you have no luck within a week.

As I remember, you could fix it at the field! What color was it? Red?

Friggin' amazing that BigMoeBBQ could hit a tree, and the only damage was some ripped covering.

After looking at it more Ken I think it will take some time to fix. It is just covering but quite a bit of it.

Can you just fly it as is? If you can wait till after Huck-O-Ween I could get to it at the end of October / beginning of November. The bottom of the EF Edges have a general curve front to back so it's a tedious job for sure.

I would like to see some pictures please. I rebuild broken planes. Not as much now as in the past. I don't have as much free time anymore. I may be able to take care of it the weekend.
