The plan exists, but no spare time for realization...

Toyheli!

A real nice looking build!!!

May I ask how you covered the Fuse? Is it shrink film or paint?? I can't see a wrinkle any where, looks flawless!!

I have about 6hrs. involed in trying to cover fuse with Superkote with zero wrinkles. All trys to be taken back off! Never used Superkote, but directions stated it is supposed to shrink more at low temp..

If it is paint, can you please advise the sealer & primer that was used?????

Nice Job!!
Jimmy

I use Lightex for the red and orange colors and Top Flite Monokote for the wings. As the Lighttext shrinks around the curve body you may need to cut the shrink wrap film to contour those curves for flawless finishing. Thanks for the compliments.

Hi Mitja, this is another argentinean Guppy . When I saw this sailplane it captivated me.

During the following days I will post more pics, I bought white monokote and currently I am finishing the wings, the version will be a hotliner and I plan to throw it with a homemade hi start. If I do not reach a good result I will power it with the proper electric engine.



Have good flights

Here is my nearly-finished Guppy Hotliner. Couldnt make the canopy yet. I think it would be ready soon! I used a 40 grams 1200 KV brushless outrunner to turn 6x3 folding prop.

A canopy is quite easy to make using plastic bottle, canopy plug and source of a heat.
