I thin 30 min epoxy with alchohol and "paint" the wing tips and scuff areas to "armor" them. You can color it easily by mixing in some paint also. Tom

With the TM400 you will definitely want, at minimum, a 3S lipo and ailerons. The way it fly's, it's worth it. Tom

I'm partial to the Slow Stick. I think it and the Slo-V have similar flight characteristics, but the Slow Stick gets my vote becuse I think it's easier to repair (and modify). Tom
