yeah you are trying to shrink the ultrakote so it will hold the wood straight. Do it in small bits so you do have to go back the other way The covering is so strong its crazy. It is like 1 billion percent of the strength of an airplane i believe.

55 degrees here and wind is 7/26 (7mph gusting to 26), which makes it very difficult to land...
