Thank you for your manufacturing this nice product that many of us use in our radio control model airplanes. In the past I used and iron on fabric manufactured by Black-Baron Coverite. Unfortunately, it has been discontinued as our hobby is going through a cycle of very few newcomers, people passing away, etc. With this PET fabric I am covering a Spacewalker model airplane and then I will built an Aeronca Champ. Again, from my home country Colombia, South Amercica I want to thank you for keeping this product for our hobby. I wish you all the bested happy times. Best regards, Pablo Fernandez

This is a 1.8 oz/sq yard white dacron, that behaves just like the 3 oz dacron. It will attach to an airframe with all sorts of glue (including white glue). It will shrink with a heat gun, and is quite strong. (Dont use this on lightweight structures, as it may warp them when you shrink the cloth.) It can be sealed and painted as you would the 3 oz dacron, for that old fabric covered look on RC airplanes.
