    Just had a brainstorm. Remove all of the old covering in the open bays, slather Balsarite in the perimeter of the wing, iron on new covering and be happy! Will this work?

I flew today, after forgetting at least some of what had been going on (I should take notes!).  I added area to the fin, which seems to help the thing recover from being loose on the lines -- before, it would come up tight, bounce, then repeat.  Now it just recovers gracefully.

Clearly, I need to do more to my "area tab".

 I looked up a the Saito 56 and it is listed at 15 ounces. My ST.46 with a stub weights 9.6 and the Rustler is 9.1 with muffler. The Bearcat is a small model with 565 sq" so you would be in the 56+ounces.  I saw Brian Moores with a 60 RE in it but did not see it fly. It weighted 56 ounces. The classic Rabe Bearcat is larger but has a much thinner airfoil. The Rabe classic one flys OK up to 57 ounces. A LA 46 would be a good combination.  It would look good with a 4 cycle in it.

Yea, I think I have it, too but if Ty has it digitized already, hey.

I built one a long time ago and liked it a lot.

Of course candy is only a tint. I said that earlier. Check out House of Kolor. They show about 30 different bases you can use from multiple types of silver and gold to white, black and a number of color that, as a base under candy, can give all kinds of effects. Mark Scarborough used a number of candies over an orange base that turned out unbelievable.

The question was how to you get candy apple red and I answered that. I got the orange (and if I had a different picture that showed it, there is also red and pink) by shooting candy apple red, lightly, over sliver. The red and pink is over bronze. the blue, violet and lavender candies are over three different shades of gunmetal metallic grey.

Hands down, the Fox RC is the best choice.

      It is time to recover my circa 1966 Magician as the tissue and dope wing covering is getting a bit fragile.

      Can I use SLC directly over the old silkspan or should I remove the old tissue and start again?  Of course, the easiest way would perhaps just buy Moneycote and recover the wing with it.  Question! Will an iron on stick to the old covering that has been subjected to a bit of exhaust residue? Would it stick to afresh application of Balsarite or should I plan on removing all traces of the old silkspan and starting anew with a new covering? It will be an iron on!

I learned, check for recall notices on your car before embarking on a journey. Hey, at least it's fixed now.

PS. Kisses to Chumley  Wink

Consider it done, Tom.  He spends the day under my desk, so I didn't have to go far.

Hey Steve,

       On the contrary, I might be looking to less prop. It's not a big model. My concept, like any other modelis to get to a point where the model flies at an acceptable speed while keeping the motor running at a speed which is comfortable for it. The margin of available power vs weight is a lot wider than most normal stunters. One thing I did think of was taking the APC you mentioned and chopping it down by 2". I got plenty of props to play with and will be doing allot of test flying but I don't see this thing needing more than 11" prop
