Default Hinge sealing

Hello Don!

I think I read something about your method of sealing aileron & elev gaps, with some film...

Could you please explain the procedure?

Thanks in advance!

I don't seal hinges any more. I'm lazy. See pictues in building thread of JTEC Radiowave.

You don't seal hinges in your pattern airplanes?

Actually, the gap is very small and I minimize the gap so that this is not necessary to seal the gap. I learned this from Dave Guerin. Just sand the control surface and set in hinges. For Zap glued CA hinges, this is even easier.
