Default Lazy Bee wing hold down

I have acquired a Clancy Lazy Bee. At least in '95, he recommended #19 rubber bands to hold the wing down, it's a 8 inch cord. Anyone know a source for them?

I redid my wing for bolts, but when I was using rubber I would loop two 64's together and they worked fine for me.

The only problem is they're only a 1/16th inch wide. I might need 15 or 20 to hold the wing on.
Also, while I'm here, which .15? I have an old Enya mark III and a Norvel. The Norvel looks to me like a butterfly on a cow flap on this plane. Not much chance to shine. Ted

Maybe you can change the wing hold-ons. If not I guess your stuck trying to find the #19. If I recall I only used about eight to hold on the wing.

I can't say much about the engine. I have an OS .10 FP in mine. Which ever you think will get you around should work fine.

Thanks, if I cann't find 19s that are a 1/4 inch, I'll use the 64s. I've also thought about the OS 10 with the idea of putting a Davis diesel head on it later. Ted

I found #19's at WalMart in the scool/office supply area. My Lazy Bee weighs 32 oz. with an OS .15FP and I used 8 bands. I built mine from a kit. I think all the ARF's I've seen weigh more, so if an ARF it might need more.
