Default Ultimate parts

Mike,

Can I get a cowel for the Ulti unpainted? I'm planning on recovering and going to a 200 or 210 with cans... if I can get a new unpainted cowel it would save me lots'o time!!

Oh... are you going to Dayton this year

I don't think you can get them unpainted. Best suggestion is just take some sandpaper and rough up the existing paint and shoot some primer and repaint. I'd take the pieces you cut for the air exits and use them as test pieces to make sure the primer is compatible with the existing paint.

Doug is correct. There are not any unpainted parts available. Sorry.

Ok, Thanks guys!!

Mike, I just weighed my 46% for the first time.... after 56 flights.... full of gas and smoke oil... 52.5 pounds! I about pooed! It flys like it's only 37. My 3W150TS pulls it out of a hover fine. Just thought you would like to know. I love it!!!

Depending on what you're running for fuel tanks.. you could take almost 6 pounds off that figure for an empty weight.
