    I call her the Flying Traffic Cone. It'll never get lost now! Lol...

    Bright orange body, orange forward prop guards, and a subdued gray rear guards and landing gear. Using DJIs gray props too.

    Should have it back together by Friday.

    I didn't have time to weight the bird before dipping. But once it's all back together I'll weigh it for comparison.

    Didn't seem too heavy tho. Not much more than vinyl graphics and external antennas.

    Maybe it will help it bounce off of hard objects at fast speeds :)

    No. Good lord no.

    But plastidip is a thin rubberized coating.
