Nearly ready for finishing

Last night I finished cutting out the battery compartment, added the socket for the receiver, and cut out the servo wire channels in the wing. Next step, final finishing and control surface installation. I'm weighing the options for finishing- full polyurethane glass, epoxy glass, or just reinforcement tape and paint or heatshrink covering?


  1. Oh, I like the heat shrink idea. It made the supercub really strong. It is light weight too...

  2. That settles it. Heatshrink it is. What brand did you use for the supercub? it seemed like that worked great. I'll try that stuff you loaned to me on some scrap foam to make sure it won't melt it.

  3. I know I'm late to the party, but I would have voted for the heat shrink too. It's just such a nice, finished look. I can't wait to see this bad boy.
