RE: applying koverall with WBPU

Ok, I'm ready to give this a try.

Have the Koverall which I still plan to use. Only question I have is:

Polyurethane vs Polycryllic

Use one or the other or both?

I have the older Hangar 9 80" wingspan cub with OS 48FS.

RE: Kinko's , Uugghhh!

RE: Single Conversion & Dual Conversion

Rodney,
I totally agree that comparing SC to DC is totally dependent on the design of each, and in what conditions they are used.
Do we really have to be confined to a 455KHz IF?
