ABSTRACT
The article describes the three basic ways of covering radio-control (RC) aircraft with aluminum. The first way is to use aluminum by itself as the actual skin. The second way is to cover a piece of balsa skin with aluminum and then glue it into place. The third way is to cover finished part such as the fuselage, wings, stab or fin with aluminum.
