Look at it this way, next time you don't have to break up a pack of D-12's

One of the guys I fly with routinely mixes D-12's and E-9s on his LOC Viper 4

Flies like a charm

Remaking of it. I got rid of the clear fins and I as ya can see I used a thin layer of J/B weld to get a good tack on the fins. Its still real light and It will be comin with me to NARCON

and another reason I used j/b weld is because I ran out of epoxy and I wanted it together:D

Looks really good Bowhunter but why did you switch to visible fins? I really love my 5 D12 crayon with clear Lexan fins. I used a fin pattern that allows the model to land before the fins hit (usually). To date i've logged a ton of flights with only one fin damaged on a very windy day. Or are you just looking for more surface area for paint:D
