Yeah, if it bugs me enough I'll paint it, although whites are very hard to match. Hoping maybe someone has a white one though.

Maidened my Energic today in very light conditions. No surprises, I was instantly comfortable with it, felt like I'd been flying it for ages. Didn't get a chance to really wring it out, but it feels very stable, yet nimble. It was really grippy in the turns and retained energy well, although it was unballasted. Can't wait to get it loaded up and fly it in some good air. Just needed a bit of elevator trim, CG felt good at 97 mm.

Haha, yeah, I'm getting used to my red nose, but at least my wings and fuse are the same color. This trend makes it look like they're piecing together planes with leftover parts.
