What motor did you decide on for the first flight ?
Looks to be pretty draggy in addition to heavy.
I'd use a minimum of an F50.

Not too bad a response, but if a company can make clog-free spray paint in the early 60's, they should be able to now.

I thought at least some of them were bought during the previous production run.
I did not think you bought ~30% of this production run :D

Ok. 60 kits. As fast as they sold out, it had to be an extremely small number.
They could probably easily sell three times this number.

Yep, gone.
I went to the website last night to order one and found it was too late.
They literally must have made like 40 or 50 kits.

That seller must be high on JENKEM.

Looks as if every tube was deliberately destroyed.

Tissuing adds a significant weight penalty over just dope.
If you want best fight times, skip the tissue.
I do agree it will add durability. So would using iron-on Monokote for the wing.

1 coat of sanding Sealer, then 1 coat of thinned color dope followed by a thin coat of clear would be lighter than using any tissue.
