This is also a reputable source for tape and glue.

The foam-tac glue is also very useful. Same as UHU-Por or creative and cheaper... check out the glue section

Here is a link to the tape from 3M .... I sure bought a lot of this stuff at $4.00 + a roll from my LHS over the years. But getting it direct from 3M now is great!

I posted the videos a little while back from a european website. Click on this link and then type in "nano" in search. All of the 50mm jets and mini warbirds will pop up.

The Nano-Racer is the same as the Mini Warbirds from Banana Hobby here in the US. The US kits are colored differently compared to the kits available in other countries. The actual manufacture is in China, and is called JPower.

Yeah, I'm still convinced that we in the US got the weaker paint scheme in every case.

That's ok.. they're brilliant little planes. I'm hooked regardless of the paint scheme.
