Sigh... had to order another roll of red and some more striping tape. Ran out with the rudder, elevator, and ailerons left to cover.

Re: What size engine? (Started Komander build... finally)

For orientation I always found starburst the worst ,you can see the plane fine you just cant tell how much your banking in some light conditions . my 3d hobby shop edge is starburst and I am going to have to strip it off this winter, it's like a illusion when in a bank your eyes sometimes follow the wrong lines making you think it's banking more or less then it actually is . a bit unnerving . I find the best wing marking are straight stripes ,one direction on top and opposite on bottom . They don't look the best but much more functional . good job on the covering though .cheers Roger

Re: What size engine? (Started Komander build... finally)

That's probably an individual thing. I've never had a problem with the starburst pattern, but I have had others say it wasn't for them. Like everything out there, a personal preference and whatever works best for you. I do have some boring straight stripes on the bottom though

Re: What size engine? (Started Komander build... finally)

Actually, I'll agree with one major disadvantage of a starburst scheme, covering and trimming the control surfaces is a huge pain in the ass. One aileron to go.

I like it too! You have lots of contrast between top and bottom, it will work.

Love it too. I have the starburst scheme on my GP Cub and have no issues with orientation at all. Good job Dave.

I've been out of action for a bit as I finally had my weight loss surgery, so time to get back to the final details with the radio installation.

My pilot finally arrived today too!
