    Interesting idea Matt...wouldn't the cost of the covering be prohibitive?

    Okay let me get this straight. The plane will be covered with one piece right? Right... and yes there will be mulit colors to deal with. Why couldn't you still cut out a small bad section and iron on a new one, how else would you do a repair right? So if they just sent a small square of each color you would be good to go wouldn't ya. It's not like they cant print out say a 6" x 6" piece of each color and send it with the plane. Or just keep stock of each color in a solid color sheet and you buy it. Just trying to wrap my head around this. Doesn't make a lot of sense to sell you the entire scheme on a single sheet. That wont take all the bends and what not into account. They have to make this affordable otherwise selling to the masses isn't going to work out to well is it. They must of found a way to do this in a way that is very cost effective to them. So it begs the question "How do we make this doable for repair work" Jeez man wish they would explain this somewhere. Have they not yet patented this process and are afraid someone will steal it? Okay who's got the hookup to get the answers we need? MooHaha

    I don't think we will find out too much until a plane treated with that tech is up for pre-order. Just my speculation...

    I talked to them at Nall and from what I understood the new covering technique is still in it's experimental stage. I ask what about if and when you needed to make a patch and was told they may have sections you can buy. The new covering has a painted film on top so it may be a new learning curve to fix them.

    did you get it ups or truck to a business.? I had my 91 delivered to where I work and it was 120.00. the only problem I have with ef shipping is if 3dhs can ship a 74 or75" plane for 45-50 bucks why cant ef. if I wanted a 74 edge or laser ect it cost more to ship ups than truck. they need to talk to there shipping company or also try fed ex also

    190.00 shipped is the same as 3dhs if you used ups.

    the only problem will be if you need to repair the covering not going to be able to match it with anything so don't put a hole in it or have any crash damage
    and it will be good. the only other thing I wonder about is it the cheap china stick on covering that we all seen on arf's in the past.

    I highly doubt the plane will be covered with one piece. I would imagine it would be much more efficient to print multiple "right wing top", "right wing bottom", "elevator top", "elevator bottom", "left forward fuse side", "left rear fuse side", etc. pieces of film and then iron them on...think assembly line and ecomomies of scale. Of course this is all just me guessing, but it seems logical to me.

    This would also allow them to sell covering "by section" just like they sell replacement parts.
