This was my first time using doculam and doped Esaki tissue. Covering with the doculam was a joy. The hardest part with the tissue was cutting it to shape without tearing it. While applying it, if it folds on itself while wet, forget it. It is a VERY light weight and strong covering method worth the effort. I vacuum formed a canopy, but I am not sure if I will use it. I haven't found a suitable pilot yet.

I first saw this plane in MAN many years ago while I was in high school. Well...I stumbled on it again and decided to build it. This is the first plane that I converted to electric. It was a pain to count "calories" when I am used to using whatever glue ( like my hero epoxy ) when building nitro planes. It came in at about 19 oz, but I will double check that after a few finishing touches. I did get to try my hand at vacuum forming by building a pump system and table, as well as tinting the plastic. It is hilarious that all that effort went into one tiny canopy, but I needed to learn some things in the process. It should be ready soon, almost three decades later.
