    If it were only Corvette "Flame Red" like the General.
    Did you see the current owner of LEE 1 is painting over the flag? :eek:

    Yeah I saw that, some yuppie golf pro. He ought to resell the car instead of desecrate the car that so many enjoyed watching on television. Not to debate the politics of the flag itself but just to say it means different things to different people.

    Nice. I can almost hear "Dixie" :D
    Does the vinyl affects GPS at all?

    I thought it might. I posted the same question here and was assured it shouldnt. I flew yesterday and detected the usual average amount of satellites. I usually connect with anywhere from 9 to 14. Yesterday was 11 on average so it was okay. This is a P2+V3.

    The orange paint used on the General Lee is the least consistent feature off the car. Corvette Flame Red, Hemi Orange and Big and Bad Orange are all correct ...

    Fun fact: Ive read the interior was tan and not black for filming purposes. Seems black does not make for a good background.

    Another fun fact ....
    A modified 1969 Dodge Charger, painted to look like the General Lee from the TV Show “The Dukes of Hazzard,” nearly became the most expensive car ever ...

    And to think. I grew up with this show. That flag meant nothing to this Yankee. I didn't hate folks of a different race, color etc. I just rooted for them to outrun ol Roscoe. We really have become a nation of overly sensitive pu$$ies.

    Oh. And Daisy was always more of a focal point.

    If the plastic shell doesn't affect the GPS then why would a non-metallic sticker? You'll be fine. :)

    And as far as the colors used I am aware of the different ones used but the original was Corvette Flame Red!
    Anyone visit the Dukes Of Hazard museum in Chattanooga Tennessee?

    Thanks man. It was back on March 12 and I was new to FPV. I was so into what I was seeing on the monitor, that I was waaaaaay too far out. The last thing I saw from telemetry was 10.1V, then snow. OOPS :rolleyes::rolleyes::eek: ! Anyway, I grieved for something like twelve days, then bought a used one off the classies here. I made improvements to almost every aspect of the new bird, especially a TRACKER !!! So now it's up and away again, and havin' a ball in my old age. How's Mia 2?
