[font=Tempus Sans ITC][/font]Hi all. Just wondering if these things will Fly with a covering of Monokote or am I wasting time and money? Thanks

Gave some Monokote to a friend to cover his rubber plane years ago and it shrank so strongly that it collapsed the structure. It needs the larger, stronger sizes of Controline/RC stuff.
 

Sure it's a wrinkly mess, but it flies.

Monokote is usually too heavy for rubber powered models. 

If you've never built stick and tissue models I'd recommend Don Ross' books on Rubber Powered Models, his books are published here: Aeronautical Publishers Click Here

If you build Coconut Scale or larger you might get away with the lighter plastic coverings like Solarfilm and the likes.  Mega 54" Span Models Click Here for a video
But you're talking using a big rubber motor like this: Braiding Rubber Motors Click Here
