I’m relatively new to the world of free flight, having only built a couple of planes covered in domestic tissue. I recently saw some planes covered in microlite and I really liked the look. I would love to try it out, but I’m having a hard time finding it. Is it even made anymore? If so, where can one acquire?

Thanks!

I have no idea. It's shiny thin plastic with adhesive on the back that allows you to attach it to your frame with a heat iron, and also shrink it. It comes in many colors.

Someone in Canada named , I think, Carl Risteen produced the Microlite.  Don't know if he is still doing it.
