    I think it was a drone...I don't know the specifics, but look how easy it was to apply if you have the $600 gun...I used 1500w heat gun and it worked fine, but slowly...still two weeks to cover the entire plane is fast

    Boat Shrink Wrap and boat shrink tape covering holding up well outside. No peeling of tape, covering still very tight. Got the motor started, but two of my tie downs ropes broke, and plane pivoted around the third on on the left wing. On the way the prop managed to mangle a big step stool...

    I tried to find a dual trainer, but no luck...I'm practicing landings using a Drifter, and similar ultralights on MS Flight Simulator X...I do have rudder peddles...just like all simulators you can fly any plane that works perfectly...we both know an untrimmed plane won't behave that way...I'll...

    the plane has been outside for almost a month...tape still holding well..survived sun, wind, rain, and hail..shrink wrap still tight...just mounted a BRS 750 chute to the plane, just in case...still have a few bugs to work out on the plane, and then I'll try to start the motor, and do a few hops...

    I thought of stretching shrink tape around each full rib to hold the fabric in place. The shrink tape will stretch when pulled and snap back to it's original shape.
