    Has anybody used this stuff for covering? Cut tape popped up in my amazon suggested products and I googled it up and found this video.



    Seems like it might work for covering. Just curious if anybody has already been a guinea pig and tried it. (And yes I know razor blades and patterns work fine but this looks pretty cool)

    I figured you were going to pop up and say "it sucks, don't do it". I might get some too to test out.

    Only problem I can see is covering has more surface tension so the cut line may be a little more sloppy, but I've been wrong before!!

    Interesting stuff. I would think it'd work great for paint masks too.

    so who's going to try it on Monokote? what is the filament made of? you could rub glue stick on a strand of carbon fiber and it might work just as well. what's that fishing leader material, the green stuff that is really thin and impossible to break, that might work well too. you just can't get a lot of glue stick left behind, maybe let it dry on the strand a bit before sticking it to your airframe.
