I still have a Formosa ... or as HK called it - Badius.

I originally covered in film ... but soon tired of the look. So I ripped that off and then covered in thin nylon nett and PVA. Quick spray of colours and she's a strong skinned peach ! That Net and PVA is like armour plate.

I also changed from tail-dragger to trike with steerable nose wheel.

I never found it to be as aerobatic as claimed ... knife-edge was difficult to maintain ... but it is a fine flyer to carve up the sky.

I'd have to dig out the old thread on here ... but I think I ended up with 2836 1100kv with 10x5 or 11x5.5 prop on 3S.
