Hi,

I covered both of my aircraft with Hypec. For the Lazair, it's ideal because you don't have to rib stitch or anything. It's very easy to work with and I covered and finished mine in a few days.
I left mine silver with some colour at the leading edge. It turned out very nice and still looks great after two years.
It is the least expensive and easiest way to fabric cover an airplane. I've worked with a couple of different systems in the past, and I'll do Hypec again with my next project.
Get the Attach Gloo and Silver Sunbarrier from Falconar Aviation, but get the cloth from somewhere like Aircraft Spruce because it's cheaper.

Cheers,
Brian D.

Here's an article that Adam Hunt wrote about covering with Hypec. Super nice guy that I got to know because of my last ultralight, a Pterodactyl.
