Jason, Nice Bug. Is it difficult to see a bug with the clear covering at altitude? I was concerned that mine would blend into the background so I used the clear covering on the bottom of the wing and red ultracoat light transparent for the top of the wing. Here's a question for everyone who SAL's. Do you SAL launch with your thumb on top, or your thumb on the bottom? I always launch with my thumb underneath on the spar and my index finger on top on the spar with the middle finger just behind the index. Noticed that Jason has a thumbpad on top of the wingtip.
