Looking nice. I don't like the black too much.

I've stripped the black paint off the bottom and nose cone on my Mirage and intend to paint it blaze orange in these locations.

I have an earlier version of AstroFlight watt meter. Maybe there are other good ones which cost less. A decent multi-meter can be useful too but usually they cant measure volts and current at the same time.

Is this any good? Lot cheaper. Do I just put this in series between the battery and the connector by soldering the dean plugs?

I haven't tried that meter. I started using this one, its a little bit more accurate than watt meters because it doesn't use the flight battery to power itself, its completely independent of the plane's circuit.
The annoying thing about it though is that you can only measure one thing at a time, either Voltage or Current, unles you have two of them . It is very convenient for Current because it doesn't need any connectors. Also I used it to measure parasitic drain on my car battery, so it does have other uses.

Thanks. This is what I'm trying to achieve. Or at least close..... Made new "winglets" outta balsa today and painted/glued them on. She's getting there. I did actually take her up this morning to make sure the paint didn't effect flight characteristics. Flew just fine. Now for the camo....
