Default skeeter 30 covering?

Just finished framing my skeeter 30 and I'm not sure which covering to use. I'm thinking about using superkote but I'm not sure if it is light enough either. any suggestions???
Thanks

I don't know what a skeeter 30 is, but I've built several e-planes from 300 - 450 sq. in., from 18 oz. to 34 oz. with conventional built-up balsa construction and I have had good experience with Microlite. It weighs .6 oz. per sq. yd. and is easy to work with. Dark blue and silver are completely opaque and don't show overlaps. I tried Polycover and was disappointed.

I used UltraCote lite on my Skeeter 30.

The Skeeter is an all wood 3D park flier available as a kit or ARF, both Made in USA, from BillyHellRC.com.

grn2806, BTW, you're gonna love this little plane. It is highly maneuvarable, very predictable, and even flies well in 10-15 mph winds. It does beautiful flat spins. I have a Hacker A20-20L motor and it has truly ballistic pull out from a hover.
