I have the T-Peg and a FrSky 4-channel Rx on the way. The Vario is on my desk. Waiting for parts (tap tap tap).

Yes, it definitely needs a better throwing peg! That round one hurts, and it's too easy to "hook" it on launch. My Libelle is no longer a thermal virgin. :)

Still waiting on the Rx.

Haven't decided on the bottom yet, probably a black stripe or two.

Trying to figure out the Taranis code I downloaded. I guess it won't get into my brain until I move the sticks and watch the servos move.

Not nice at all. I am going to be forced to spend money soon I am afraid. Like the 40+ planes I have now aren't enough :face

Print these using "Poster" option on decal paper (Bare Metal). Choose photo paper for the paper type.

They are a little longer than the wing, so you will trim them to fit.

After printing, I sprayed about five coats of Polycrylic to waterproof the ink.

I cut them out, and carefully applied to the wing.

I looked at those T pegs, but decided I'd just make my own. Less than an hour of work (and overnight curing) and I had this:

You can see how I did it in the Libelle album:
