    After a tree come out of nowhere and attacked my drone it needed a new body after a slightly rough landing.

    I always struggled to see it against the sky with it being white so I thought this would be a ideal time to paint it.

    It turned out ok, didn't want to go all black just in case of heat issues.

    You know, your new Phantom shell looks really nice, & I think you did a great job with that color. It would certainly appear like it would stand out in the sky, very well.

    I have another "brilliant" option, which you might not be aware of.

    For extra visibility, in broad daylight or darkest night time flying, please see the Lume Cube advantage. ;-)

    They have three strobe modes which are fantastic for day time flight orientation, and keeping VLOS much much farther, than without them blinking so brightly.

    Looks like an Autel pumpkin. :rolleyes:

    Nice paint job. I used a vinyl wrap so I can change it annually with my mood.

    Like we haven't heard of that manufacturer around here? Ha

    Apparently, they do make a fine product, and the pilots flying them are sharing their happiness, very pleased.

    I like the Yellow props. Fall colors. Oops..... I shouldn't be saying "fall" when it comes to flying.

    Humpty Dumpty comes to mind. When you put him all back together again.

    I was inspired by this thread. I have a p3pro, but would probably never mess with it, but I have an aee ap10 as my beater. It was a little dinged up so I copied the paint job shown here. Visibility is awesome on this thing.
