I’m relatively new to the world of free flight, having only built a couple of planes covered in domestic tissue. I recently saw some planes covered in microlite and I really liked the look. I would love to try it out, but I’m having a hard time finding it. Is it even made anymore? If so, where can one acquire?

I don't think they are still making Microlite. You can find some places that still have some in stock. Do a google search for it. I understand Solarfilm and another similar film Solifilm are suppose to be comparable. But for us traditionalist...it's tissue, either domestic or Esaki. Best of luck finding what you want!
