    Hello everyone ... looking for good advises on a skin decal for my Phantom 3 ... I just saw this one online , I really like the color ( I have heard it is the best option to be seen in the sky ). I am not sure about the material , I have heard "Carbon Fiber" blocks the GPS signal.

    I have a couple sheets of the black "carbon sheets" like two foot by two foot I use for different stuff. It is actually Poly Vinyl Chloride polymer not real carbon fiber, it just has the texture of carbon

    I thought the same thing , its just the " texture ", but then I did read "MATERIAL : PVC Carbon Fiber"... I know how real carbon fiber looks like and how is made, but technology changes everyday and you never know.

    What about the weight ? Does this material add considerable amount of weight to the Phantom?

    The PVC stuff is real sensitive to high heat. I used a heat gun to mold the stuff around my P3's arms for added support to fend off the dreaded hole cracks. It must be working because all my P3's holes have been crack free for months now. lol

    I have a tiger repelling rock that i'd like to sell you... i know it works because there are no tigers around :)

    The heatgun is a cool (heh) tip though... I've got a decal to apply to mine later on this week i'll take a look at that...

    Hey Khandor, Little less than two weeks from now I will take that rock, but only if it works on Lions and Bears. I will be out Elk hunting and when I kill one will be real nervous gutting and cutting the beast into packing pieces to take back to the truck.

    LOL:eek:
