Question
build up thin rudder, covering problem

Hello oracover light experts,

I have build a replacement rudder for my aspire like a supra with carbon strips and carbon le with 0,5 mm thickness.

For your inspiration like this: http://www.hyperflight.co.uk/product...ompetition-fin

I have tried several times to cover it with oracover light. Getting frustrated
I want to cover it in one part, so wrap it around the le, like the Vladimir originals.

The problem I have is that between the rips, near the te both sides of the covering stick together. The rudder is very thin at that point, about 2mm. But it can be done, but how?

I hope I made my problem clear. Thank you in advance.

Stick the covering to one side and then put some talcum powder on the portion that is stuck down. Then when you wrap the rest of the covering around the surface it will not stick to the covering on the other side.

thank you, will give it a try and report. First build a new rudder

In the dutch forum I got the advise to put it in a 150 C hot oven. Will give it a try too.
