I saw someone covering their similar size warbird with 1 oz so I'm feeling pretty good about 3/4 oz. May have to land with a little extra power!

Where do you find 1/2 oz cloth (other than Balsa USA which everything is expensive)? I bought 3/4 oz on ebay. Will 3/4 oz make a big difference on a, say, 60 size Warbird?

Yes it answers it perfectly. I like the added step of removing excess glue. Makes sense and not sure why I wasn't doing it. Wood glue dries outside in so if I add too much then I can imagine trapped...

Perfect work as usual Vince. Okay time for another builders question. I see others fillet all joints with wood glue. I don't see you do that. Is it overkill if the joint was glued properly? Ribs...

Now he tells me! :) You are certainly good at coming up with slick ways to build. I didn't think of that for the existing built wing half. I used a blade to cut from a precarious angle. It looks...

YES! Vindicated! I'm not the only one. Your description is exactly what I am going to do. If I cut carefully I can use the section I cut to glue on the opposite side.

Uh, I think you have a decimal point in the wrong place! :eek: Unless they included a control board that's just wire and LEDs. Go get your digikey book and start ordering components for much less!!
