I had one tip covered, but I was not happy with how it turn out. I will try again tomorrow. It is Hooters Trivia night tonight.
I have some tips on covering the wing tips at the beginning of this thread (Post Number One).

Sure. You can do that after you help me unwarp my wing where the aileron sits.

You are correct. Yes it is covered, but I need an extra set of arms. The warp is pretty significant

Small setback. As I mentioned before I had a significant warp where the aileron was going to join with the wing. I brought the wing with me to Hodges today. Bill and Mac informed me that we could not heat it out becuase I already had the covering on pretty tight. Instead of taking all the covering off and heating it out, they recommended I make a long hinge slot where the warp was, fill it with wood glue, then clamp it straight. When the glues dries hopefully the wing will be straight. Here are a few pictures after I clamped it.

You are a big bully. Thats ok. I have the wing done. I used hinge tape instead of CA hinges. I might go back and install the hinges since I do not like the way it looks with tape.

I decided to cover the wings with the same monokote I used on the wing. The CF Ultrakote was too heavy for me to manipulate around the curves.

It looks good. Pictures tomorrow

J, I am no small feller either... However I say go spend your cash on Reflex XTR. We really need a SSX for that. XTR is much more realistic IMO. G3.5 aint bad, but XTR spanks it IMO.

Looking forward to meeting all of you guys at SEFF. I should be there the Saturday prior to the start. Likely watch during most of the actual event and fly Sat~Weds. And spend most all my money with James once he arrives! I want a Bipe in the worst way!!!

Hoping to be the first to provide a full blown review of the bipe

I mainly wanted to get the 3.5 due to being able to do a virtual fly in with my online buds at wattflyer . However, I may look into one if the price is right.
