Default covering



hi guys

I am in the process of re covering an old bird and having a PITA of a time at it.

So I was looking for the vido'a that Rc.Ken made to see if I can find some tips that will help

I think one of the reasons I am having most of the trouble is I am trying to use up a lot of my old covering material. biggest problem area is going arround compound cures.

So any suggestions will be a help

Thanks in advance

Cheers Bob T

I helped Mikey (my Brother, Minnflyer) with those articles
Compound curves are ALWAYS a PITA... but as I recall that issue is 'covered' ( :-D ) in the videos.
c'mon back if you're still having issues, as far as 'old' covering, I've never had a big issue with that specifically,
unless it was crappy covering in the first place.

Thanks

The corners were covered, and tried to do them as shown but did not come out as good as I would have liked but will do as this is a repair on an 20 year old bird, and it look a hole lot better than it did

If you're using Monokote or some of the cheaper coverings, curves and wing tips are a challenge. In my opinion, you would probably have better success using Ultracote.
