I've seen Future Floor Wax mentioned at a number of free flight forums. You can probably find it on a search of the Free Flight forum here. You can also try the Small Flying Arts forum.

I'm not sure if it's sold in Brazil. In some of the Latin American countries it goes by "Klaro".

Hey, Lucke-

I have an old Guillow`s Nieuport II kit that I always thought of converting to electric R/C. It`s an old kit- before the crappy laser-cut wood. The only reason I haven`t built it yet is that I fly micro planes and helis that I can fit into small aluminum cases to carry on a motor scooter to a park. The Nieuport would be hard to transport and the wing struts would probably get broken.
If I did build it,I was thinking of covering it with tissue and dope just like I did as a kid building rubber-powered "stick models" from Guillow`s and Comet and Sterling.
Good luck with the Nieuport. It`s a beautiful plane and a nice size kit.

Thank yoy MIG29.

This will be my first micro project. What could be a good setup for motor + esc + prop?

Id like to buy all things first and go to buidling. Im thinking to reinforce the wing struts with some carbon fiber rod or strip maybe.
