Yes! Paper on, and be sure and follow their advice about using the oil based polyurethane to seal / waterproof the paper. They commented that hot glue won't stick to the varnished paper, but it will if you let it dry thoroughly. At least it did for me! :)



Has anybody tried the spray version? Or the spray acrylic?

You just have to be sure the propellant or solvents won't melt the foam with the aerosols.

Here is a video of Chris hand launching (and catching) his Versa that I took a while back at the ARCA field in Austin:

Thanks for posting that, Rod! I've given up on being able to slope soar it, so my next step is to remove the pod and install one with a motor. I figure that'll be a good use for my 1300 3S packs that are too tired for Mini Protos duty.
