Flysky FS-i6 Custom Paint

#1
I repainted my FS-i6 over the weekend, and thought i'd post pics:)

I used Rustoleum flat grey primer, Rustoleum Flat Black Primer, and Rustoleum Textured somethin-r-other

the only real modification i made was to file down the power button and gorrila glue some 60-grit sandpaper to it, so i can actually move it without hooking a fingernail under the top/bottom edge - it works great!!

I had some stickers on it before, and thought i'd jsut leave the ones on the back and paint over them, then some came off, so i figured i'd just take 'em all off - i kinda like it :)

I think I would like more info on that textured paint if you please. I have been thinking of dipping my Taranis to swirl it but I think I like that textured look better AND it seems like it would ease my slippery feeling issues in the process too.

It definitely adds a grippy texture - about like a 220-grit sandpaper, but less abrasive - but it's a bit finicky and takes a while to dry, it will flatten and smooth out if you put any pressure on it before its dry, and i can't yet speak for how well it will wear, but it's worth a try ;)

Looks like it's ready for war! Do let us know how the texture lasts, it looks like it could be a more comfortable grip. I was going to try plasti-dip on the back of my taranis, but this might be a better option.
