    I decided to get a little creative and change the look of my P3P today. Not sure if the color scheme is a keeper or not but we'll see.

    Nothing on the bottom since there's really nothing to put the vinyl on.

    They need to come up with a bottom decal so when your flying it you can see it better.

    Or one could just have the price tag dangling at the end of a string attached under the lens with Scotch tapeā€¦;)

    Can you dye the shell like the blades? I'm thinking about ordering a shell and dying it if you can

    You could but that would kill your warranty. Not to mention the enormous amount of work it'd take to disassemble and reassemble the aircraft from start to finish.

    I am sure I saw another post where someone tried to dye the battery cover it didn't take the dye. I would assume the shell is the same plastic.

    Pretty sure the shell would take the dye. It seems porous. The battery is really smooth.

    Thanks for the compliment but it's not a skin. It's just scrap vinyl that I got for free from my friend's sign shop. Free is always good.

    Yes, free is damned good! But I'd still call it a skin, or wrap. You wrapped a new skin on her! :D

    How do you like the carbon gimbal guard? Thoughts? I like your color scheme
