I've been looking for something sleek and different and I decided to look into a Hotliner. As the title indicates, I bit the bullet. I purchased a Nike II:

I have a Radian and I have fun with it. However, I've been interested in something that will do more. Plus the new club I joined has glider fun flys so now I have two planes to bring. I haven't decided on set up yet other than I will be using a Spektrum RX and most likely using Hitec thin wing servos. I may try to add a rudder.

And Chris, you were the enabler this time!

Did you do anything special to protect the bottom of the plane on your Hotliner Chris?

No, but I've often thought I should put something on the bottom. I just never remember until it collects a few more scuffs! Something like bathtub anti-skid stuff might work? Or just a layer of the good quality clear packing tape, and peel it off when it gets too manky.
