Mold in my Seamaster

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
My Seamaster ARF is growing mold in the rear fuselage. It is actually coming right through the covering just ahead of the rudder and on the the rudder. I took the rear hatch cover off and there is quite a bit of mold inside. Has anyone else had this problem and if so what did you do?? I'm thinking a weak solution of bleach and water.
Experience is the name we give to our mistakes.

I had the same problem. Bleach seemed to work ok. I used a toothbrush to try and get some off. I also recovered the fuse because tbe mold was coming through like in your case.

Good luck
