New Bird
« on: October 13, 2011, 12:43:37 PM »
ARC SV-11.  Built this pretty much to test new Enya 61re.  
Wing and feathers are finished with red tinted dope.  
Put a layer of cf veil on flaps for stiffness, thats why they are darker.  
Should have done same to elevators for cosmetic balance.
Heading to Baton Rouge contest tomorrow, may make 1st flight Sat or Sun after officials.  
Steve H.   silver canopy and numbers on right wing just for you.

Nice Allan. 

If it's any consolation the same thing happened to my carbon covered flaps using the same color dope too.
