    Can you not take the plane into the hobby shop and hold it up next to the covering display to get a match? That's what I do. I think this is honestly...

    Are you using a spinner with a plastic backplate? If so, that's your problem. Cut a piece of open mesh plumber's sandcloth or drywall sanding sheet...

    There are several items of good news there. The plane is a trainer, so it's appropriate for a beginning pilot. The servos and engine aren't too...
