    Well like ive mentioned b4.  I havent done any covering work (just patchwork) with any aircraft fabric b4 i did the Oratex,  but i tell u that oratex is AWESOME STUFF. Least far as i can comment on.  Its so easy and fast a kid could do it. Hahahaaaa i have two more to cover for myself and i tell u thats what ill b useing on them.  And not to mention i cut off a total of 10.7lbs off dads PA12 with the Oratex 6000, biggest thing to remember is when ur installing the oratex is u have to remember ur installing the final surface so u have to take care to do the best job u can and take ur time, and think ahead cause what u leave is what everyone will C when its done.

    The BRS chute i had in my BlackFox was 21.4lbs. And was good for 1050lbs.  Useless dead weight if ur into low and slow flight like me. I pulled mine and for fun set it off in the front yard. Wasnt that much fun tho. Hahahaaaa
