    I wanted to share an experience with you guys/gals!

    Recently while flying, My Phantom 2 Vision, got into a battle
    With a huge June Beetle, poor beetle, did not stand a chance!
    Anyhow, I ended up with a Phantom, that resembled something
    Out of a horror movie! What an incredible mess!

    So I brought it inside, to attempt a cleaning, I first scrubbed it with
    Paper towels, warm water, tiny spot of detergent, did not work real
    Good, my wife hands me a BABY WIPE ( no additives, no scent, w/ aloe )
    It cleaned the stuff RIGHT OFF, no scrubbing, no mess, just plain simple!
    I've been doing this for a while now, well I have a spare phantom shell ( for
    Rainy day, REALLY rainy day ), I noticed my Vision had a nice shinny luster
    To it, where as my spare shell was dull, almost satin look to it, I think the aloe
    Is conditioning the plastic, each time I wipe it down! I'm not sure what long time
    Exposure would or could do to the plastic, but has been positive so far, plus dust and dirt,
    And unfortunately guts, wipe of really easy now, even without baby wipes!
    It even takes of grease, as I once grabed it from the shelf with greasy hands ( fixing
    Mower ), busted out a baby wipe, bam, right off! SWEET!

    I'm sure some of you probably already do this? But I thought it was cool!

    I use store brand ( Parents Choice ) fragrance free w/aloe ( the cheap stuff ) lol.
    I always grab the bag when it is low, cause the wipes are not so wet, as when they are new!
    They are better, when they dry out a bit, don't leave so much moisture behind!

    Just thought I'd share, might save someone a bit of time, and effort!

    Take care, Fly safe!
