Hi Bill, all main parts are from XPS (austrotherm polystyrene), on a spar is from bambus, sometimes I use a carbon.

Looking really great, Vasek.

How will it be covered/finished/ or painted?

Hi Bill,
filler then paste paper, on the surface I use watercolor paint, finally layer varnish.
Look on this page http://www.letadlazpolystyrenu.cz/di...arvy-na-modely . This is only my second construction, I don´t have lot of experience.
What do you me recommended me for the finaly skin?
Sorry for my English :-)

Re


There is BIG problem with landing gear - covering.
I think - shock absorbing legs are better!

I know it!

yes, shock absorbing landing gear is better, but not in this project :-) . 99% flight will be from hand and landing to tall grass. Beta which is on video is your?
