Hey Mate

Actually I got a fly in at Hammondville yesterday Morning.

Was able to maiden my T45 (great jet!) lost my F4F to a dodgey parkzone servo and had some great touch and go landings with the Supercub.

And the old UM P51 had a fun time too till the charger ran out of batteries.


Have not had a chance to go to the Menai Indoor Flight yet. I heard its pretty crazy, I never know when it is on!

Mine is now sitting in US Customs, 50 miles south of me. When they finally release it, I should have it the next day.

this planes performance is due to its lightness.
Making it heavier will void one of its advantages.
Better make a coat or two of finishing resin or finishing epoxy that wont add too much weight and will make it more durable and more slippery

if want it light and want to fbg it then use polyacrlic, much lighter then epoxy or resin, but not as strong but still gives some strenght

i think the plane is good ax it is. If it needs a lot of foam cutting then some carbon strips will help.
