Look for RC Hot Deals. He's in California and usually goes to all the big shows.

EDIT - Just checked the vendor list, he'll be in booth 403.

FWIW, HobbyPeople has a 2212/09 motor on sale for $17 (and will be at the AMA show):

That's not a good motor for this plane, the kv is too low. The Suppo 2212-6 2200kv motor is the one you need for this.

I don't know but you find little half-pints of water-based paint at Lowe's and I get some colors at the local craft store. It's funny when I go into Michael's or Hobby Lobby as I am usually the only male in the place! Craft stores also have some glues we can use, and lots of stick on letters and stencils.

On this build, the primary glue was Gorilla Glue on the tabs & slots of the airframe. The K-F step (upper wing piece) was attached to the main wing with 3M. Epoxy was used for the plywood motor mount & wood support blocks.

PM me if you want or need more info - I'd be happy to help.

I use to build SPADS out of coro. How are you prepping the coro? I use to rough it up with some sandpaper, but I also used paint thinner to take the top protective coating off too. Nice plane you did a good job. If my foam one doesnt hold up, I will try a coro one next.

Neet paint job DENNIS.
Thank all of you for your paint suggestions. I did go on the
www.testors.com site. Found a hobby store through them that is about 35 miles from me. They do not have a wide range of ACRYLIC colors. But will get me by.
