If you have 6.5x5.5 pylon prop take the time to run it before 6.5x6.0

Yeah... I guess its not too subtle

I have finished glassing. I will be spakling it this weekend. I hope the motor comes in today so I can do finishing touches before painting. I enjoy the build process as much as the flying, so I try not to rush it.

PU skim coat question. Is there a reason not to try thinned finishing epoxy Iike I use for glassing a balsa plane instead of PU? Is it a weight thing?

Mum is the word!
PU is tougher and lighter , epoxy is heavy and brittle.
PU skim coat is awesome.

Spakeling is done. Air vents installed. The paint is being delayed by rain and humidity. Hopefully it will clear up later in the week.

Yes. I used the lightweight spackle.

It's in my build thread, but I figured I'd let the Ritewing masters see my paint plan for my TL50 (inspired by my 7 year old boy)

Thank You


I would like to post a huge thank you to Mopar, Gryphon, and Murdo for all the help getting me back in the air quickly! You guys went above and beyond, especially Mopar. Closest and most helpful RC community I have dealt with.
THANKS guys!
