    It came out at 13 lbs even, right in the middle of the target range. Fly's great, very agile yet very graceful as well. I wish my Super Stearman was as good a flyer.

    Scrape it off. If the epoxy cures with a glossy finish there was too much left on. Not a big deal but when you sand it smooth it will take longer and you won't get a smooth transition from the balsa...

    It's looking real good stanki, you're going to love the way the Ultra Sport fly's. I would suggest an APC prop instead of the Master Airscrew. The MA prop flexes too much and you loose efficiency,...

    Careful now, smoking fat doobs has been shown to increase enjoyment and reduce stress related to the operation of r/c model aircraft and has therefore been deemed illegal by the US Government. ;-)

    Thanks mrdhud, it's good that I didn't order them already, I would have thought they were the same as the GP Super Stearman, 4".

    Can someone tell me what size the main gear wheels are on the GP WACO please. I'm about to order my plane and wanted to replace the wheels with Dubro wheels.

    The way you're cutting the covering is pretty much the way everyone does it. If you can find a copy of Faye Stilley's books on covering with monocote they are worth the read.
