If the coating on the wooden blades is damaged, is there a product or way to replace the coating ??? 600mm woodies for my Raptor.

I f there was or is something like that it would probably be at least half the price of a new set of woodies. Woodies Are 20.00 or less for a new pair.

This is what Century has for the wood blades that you find on their Hawk and Swift 16.

I have found it works well on any blades from 500mm to 600mm as well as for covering tail booms (helps the visibility and looks kewl).

I have used just plain packing tape to put the covering back down if they tear in the middle. When they come loose on the tips use a few drops of thin CA.

I'm not sure I would trust a set of partially damaged wood blades. Maybe if you're flying an antique with vintage blades, but otherwise the cost of being "cheap" by trying to repair some blades may end up costing you a whole lot more in crash damage later on.

In the Old Day's

When we had to assemble our own from kits : " Anyone Remember Yale Mfg ?? "

The covering we used was plain ole vinyl contact shelf paper.

Super Cheap !

We had all sorts of cool color's. I even saw some Paisley one's !

Let see if I remember. You measured, the circumference of the blade and added 1/4" of a inch to the determined width.

You peeled and folded 1/4" only from the shelf paper, and laid it on the bench sticky side up.

Grab your blade top side up, and rest it on the paper with 1/8" of the paper showing and fold it over the top of the trailing edge and rub it down.

Then pull the backing off equally the full length, and gently bring it from the bottom, around the leading edge, over the top and it stops at the trailing edge.

Or you could get real crazy and go pure woody - but it takes a bit of time.

I used to use the ol' polyurethane look ^^^^^

If you only have to bend over once to pick it up it's a good landing.
