Thanks,
it actually turned out to be a real good flyer - while it was uncovered I filled all the glue joints with aliphatic woodwork glue. It also got a better sanding first with 80 grit block, then 150 and 220 blocks. Damp towel to wipe down after vacuum and then applied the Hangar 9 covering. I like my models to be quiet both on the ground and in the air. So low bounce tires, suitable for pavement or grass / dirt runway and polypropylene bushings on the engine mounts.
She does smooth aerobatics and has pretty good vertical. Nothing like a Extra or similar but very predictable and recovers nicely from the inevitable oops.
