New makeover on the p3p. very happy with skin it's got a raised texture to it feels like actual carbon fiber and heavy duty. Ordered the letters and stripes separate. just waiting on the carbon props to show up and I'll be set

Looks good, very well applied. I use carbon props and balance them and polish with rubbing compound. Doing that improves performance you can actually hear the difference vs. stock plastic.

Full sized aircraft pilots wax and balance their props too, even waxing the aircraft skin lessens drag, same dynamic applies to drone props.

Theres even videos on balancing the motor armatures, These can have very unbalanced performance. I havn't tried it yet, but doesn't seem too hard if done right. Called du-bro asking them if they sold a shaft to accept motor threads. He was interested in my idea that they carry that type of balancing shaft, but don't see it on the site yet.

Waxing the aircraft is going to kinda be pointless for me considering this wrap has little bit of texture to it. .

Dont bother waxing it. Won't improve performance at the speeds drone has. But polishing props that spin at very high RPM's will.

That looks very sharp. Where did you get the wrap stripes, and letters?

This was kind of a rebuild for me I needed to replace the camera and gimbal system and the legs on the landing gears the guy I purchased it from had it drop from about 20 foot. The last piece I got is landing gears they came in today I really want to paint them black I shouldn't have any issues with the antenna inside their painting this should I?

Hey thanks. ebay is such a small place o_O I should find all of that right away. :rolleyes: :D

Ahaha I knew that was coming. I will send you seller information. I inquired with them a few days ago any kind of stickers for the landing gear they told me that they crashed their p3 in the ocean and don't have a template anymore. Not sure if they have pre-made ones up for the actual drone I guess it's worth asking
