Yes and thanks, as I am already on that page. You are right and I forgot to mention that the durability will go up with max coverage decals in those areas! Thanks for pointing that out and I will use that as an extra selling point as it is totally legitimate! On my latest desing I plan on trimming them just like you mention for the benifit!!

The stock fins are very thin. Subject to flex and damage easily and after covering mine with some standard decal vinyl they are much stiffer.

I'm certainly not advertising any design here it's just scraps I had laying around but you can kill two birds with one stone with these decals.

Putting a skin on them really improves their strength. I haven't flown mine yet and won't until tomorrow but I'm also expecting greater authority from both the rudder and elevator as well.

Nice work you're doing!

I have more designs in the works and this one can be had in all different colors as well.....

Pricing around $15 or less with shipping I hope. I will plan to pre-trim them so all you have to do is peel and stick!!


Steven,

Very nice, I already see this one on my brand new bird when I get it

Do you ship International ?

Yes I do ship international. The cost of shipping will be higher by a little bit
I still need to figure packaging out as well.

Glad you like the design!

Thanks,

Whatīs about some decals for scale looking like the cooling slots (as a replacement when gone after opening the fuselage), window frame at the front (that I missed), optical rivets ...

Perhaps you are able to combine your stickers with some elements above as an improvement...

Thanks for the info. I really loved your thread on your mods to your sukhoi.
I will be doing some that to change my CG as well. I really like the reverse aileron servo trick! I will aim for the 35 to 36 mm range like yours.

Itīs the GWS 50/43, you should get it at your LHS and its the best prop for the standard Motor.
