I have to clean my Bird off about every 5 flights due to the excessive bug guts all over her.

Anyone else cleaning guts off their Bird?

I saw in here about 9 month's ago someone talking about using the baby wipes and saying how it helped and have done so since .
Never thought about using bug shield and wonder how Amour All would do .

Yup, the blades push the air and bugs at high speed into the Phantom and they splat as they do on a windshield (windscreen for our UK people).

I wipe my Phantoms down with Aerospace 303 Protectant. It has very good UV protection and helps keep bits of sand from sticking. It also makes it easy to remove the bugs from the body. The product is more difficult to find these days as it appears most of the local auto parts places stopped carrying it for some reason. Lexol makes a good product as well that is easier to find.

Just let the blood and guts build up. It'll make a lovely pattern by the end of the summer. A biological Jackson Pollock.
