    I have the common upgrades most people have here.

    Skin, carbon props, quick release prop guards, alloy gimbal guard, carbon fibre gimbal protector, foldup windsurfer, RC silicon cover, RC stick elastics, screen hood, HDMI module. Car chargers for the batteries and RC.

    4 x LED, powered by craft is the biggest mod I have. I have yet to measure the cost of flying time.

    Does the CF wrap have any impact on the gps reception? I know with CF frames on helis you have to.make sure the rx antennas extend well outside or you get major dramas.

    "Carbon fibre effect" is probably a more accurate description ;)

    Absolutely no effect on the Radio reception because the radio antennas, and compass are in the landing gear on all models so the only thing inside the shell is GPS and compass and it hasn't had any effect whatsoever. There are two Wi-Fi antennas located on both sides of the frame though. They are identical to the ones I removed out of the transmitter and you can see them when you remove your battery at the bottom on the right and the left side. "That's on the standard at least". Also did a range check and actually had improved range, but that was probably due to less interference that particular flight. Also have one on the way that goes on the transmitter. The people at the company I ordered the Carbon vinyl from did not have the standard remote cut out yet and sent me 1 for a professional, or advanced. I messaged them and a guy named Jake has already sent the cut out, and and couple of extra numbered battery stickers which i think is a fantastic idea!!! #1 it labels your batteries by number so you can use them accordingly, and keep track of which battery is which. # 2 it makes it easier to keep your batteries looking clean. Being in the same business causes me to really care about what things look like. Personally I don't see how someone could leave one plane for years at a time but what it looks like hasn't got a thing in this world to do with what it does so I completely understand. I would have made it myself because I've already ordered some carbon fiber 8 year vinyl, but I decided to purchase the cut out from someone that has been doing this professionally just to see their technique and it is very effective, & a perfect fit!!!

    That looks "ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL" *Drone on*!!! I love the Gold carbon prop tips, logo, and accents!!! The first set of carbon props I was able to get had gold tips. I was extremely paranoid about an Accidental Bird strike, so I took what I could get until the carbon white-tipped came in. Everything looks absolutely fantastic, in the Gold DJI Logo Really Sets it all Off!!! Just as soon as I get the professional model I would love to make it look exactly like yours!!! GREAT JOB!!!! How in the world did you paint the carbon fiber textured look??? I know exactly how to print it out, but I've never even thought of duplicating the look with paint.

    Thanks for the compliments! I wish I could take credit for the paint scheme but the credit goes to Drones Etc out of Salt Lake City. They did the custom job on it when I ordered it. I just painted the batteries and added the decals :)

    Just got my transmitter fiber wrap in yesterday. It was their first one. I got some extra Carbon Fiber vynal from them, and did my Gimbel / camera saver also. Helps me remember to take it OFF. Got more Numbered Battery wraps also. These Don't just look good, But are Extremely USEFUL !!! They are some Really GOOD PEOPLE!!! They are named "BLACKEDOUT DECAL"

    That looks pretty sharp! I like the clean look. Always preferred that on cars as well. Ever have issues with your gimbal guard interfering with the gimbal? I tried one yesterday and I get slight interference when the bird is powered on and tilting to simulate a hard bank. It touches it slightly but definitely obstructing its movement so deciding if I wanted to modify it. Wouldn't be much left though I don't think.
