I wondered about that too. I want to varnish the radio tray for sure but wasn't sure about hull painting. What will you use?  Will you overspray the black or strip it off. ?  The hull is abs ist it

Im not changing that much, I just thought I might add a lick of paint to an otherwise dull hull.  But in fairness, I havent seen mine yet so it might not be dull at all!


Why not a fiesta? Because the DF65 is a known good performer out of the box and as a newby RC sailer (my ,life has been wasted on aeroplanes and nitromethane) I wanted a benchmark from which to build my knowledge base.  I think the Dragon is the benchmark.  I suspect the Fiesta would also be a benchmark, but I KNOW the Dragon is.

I hope you find it OK.
As long as it sails well it will be a good buy.
Is G4YVM a call sign?
I have G6RNK from years ago but not used these days.
