This is my first fuel/balsa 3D plane!I bought this used Funtana 90 with a Saito 100 as a winter project. The under carriage needed repairing from a folded landing gear mishap to start off with along balsa wing repairs. I removed all the covering and found several balsa repairs needed.
The plane came with JR ST125MG. Will these ok?
Was reading up about covering and ultracote seems to be the better way to go.
I replaced all the hinges with Great Planes medium size hinges. Resloted but not glued until recovered.
Any help/suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I've been a KISS fan for years both listening and playing as the spaceman Ace Frehley for a good number of years in tribute bands.
I have always had an interest about aircraft ever since I recall passing my first small airfield at the age of 3. Now, many many years later I decide I want to give this rc aircraft hobby whirl! I am totally green at this! I have read so many posts here with detailed info on so many topics. This place is great! The hard part is yet to come... flying


I thought to share a clip of me playing as Ace during a fashion show at the Chicago Theater in 2000. We also played St Paul, MN and Detroit, MI.
