It sure is hard to believe that you covered this in monokote. It sure looks "glass" smooth and shinny. Excellent job!

We should be back to finishing our two 300 SP's on Monday and flying them later in the week.

Yeah we found he normal deep drops weren't quite deep enough for the mx and Giles due to the higher thrust line so I drew up what we needed and had DA order them. I imagine the Dalton and some of the others really could use them too.
