Ya, I have done it several times. In fact my first date with my wife was a hike to Angels Landing. It's a great hike because what you see is a pretty high payoff for the effort.

So, not only is he a great flier, but a great builder too....I wish I had his talent....

Anyone know the going rate to have a plane recovered? I'm probably gonna buy the 60" Fliton Extra Freestyle in the classifieds, but the pink and purple will have to go......

I would charge $500 + covering to recover a plane

It's a lot of work

Of course, I probably wouldn't get much business

Depends on how simple or not you go..

Materials figure a little less than $20 per roll.

If you have to re hinge eveything, that's a lot of labor.

You could probably get a club guy to do it for a couple hundred bucks. Plus expenses.

That da-150 powered extra is scratch built!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHAT!!!!!! That is so amazing. What plans did he use?

It would be neat to build a plane that big from a kit but it seems those kits are almost the same price as an ARF.

Would a Specktrum AR 7000 with satelite reciever work OK in a gas 89" Slick. A friend at the flying field has re built and refurbished an old 89 of mine and was wondering if it would be OK ??

"Probably", but I think I would like a little more assurance due to the cost of the plane...

If flying with JR/Spektrum, I would fly with at least an R921 or AR 9100 04 AR9110...IMO/YMMV I am using an AR9100 with four satellite receivers..
