Video of my FT Super Bee (nicknamed Zipper) on its maiden flight and crash. I was using the high performance motors (red bottoms) and 4S lipo. Due to the quick speed and cramped space I overcorrected to avoid the tree and down she came. Damage was actually pretty minor. The plane is a little speed demon!

So while it was nice to have some color to the Storch, I had no idea the tape would leave all that striping when overlapped. So in the end, I just didn't care for the way it turned out and looked into a way to remove the tape even after it was already applied. When I asked around about the idea of removing colored packing tape from a foamboard/Flitetest plane many felt it was a bad idea and that there would be a significant amount of paper peeling up, damage, etc. But I went ahead and tried it anyways and actually was able to get decent results. Here is a video I did showing the process using a heating iron...
