Blade convering question


Im experimenting with making my own blades, just wonder what to use to cover it? Is monoquote good? I notice some blade covering is very light and is like heatshrink covering but not sure what they are.

depending what size the blades ! you can use monokote or sticky trim(or book cover), just make sure the seams or trailing in the wind.i think the heast shrink they use on blades is just for that, blades! is not the same as electrical heat shrink, i dont know where you would get that but if you could i pressume would be restrictive sizes.

Thankx Vince , got it bookmarked
I like that is says wont crack like the other stuff

I cover blades with Oracover and it works well , just keep edges so they trail the flow of air .

Has anyone ordered the Heat Shrink from Airdyn?
If so what size did you order I think the 2.5" will be too big for the rotors of the Blade
