Default RE: Covering on Nexstar

Actually, the Nexstar uses Top-Flite Monokote, like all Hobbico and Great Planes ARFs. Hobbico seems to be the parent company for all these brands. The Nexstar, like all ARFs, comes pre-covered from the factory. You don't have to do it yourself.
Ultracote is only used in ARFs for for Horizon Hobby's subsidiaries such as Hangar 9 and Eflite.

Monokote is a very durable covering based on my experience but I've found it very difficult to work with. Ultracote is slightly easier to work with.
