A great little heli and a marvel of engineering. The Coast Guard scheme would be so much easier to see when flying over the grass. What will they think of next?
There aren't any 1/43rd scale decals, only 1/48th for the Skunkworks J-Hawk. The kit is only a little smaller and the decals would work as well as some of the other scale details in the kit if you're of the inclination to 'kit bash' a $30-$40 plastic kit I've researched creating a custom set using photoshop, color inkjet printer and some water slide decal paper. Once I get it all setup and tested, I'll gladly upload the artwork for anyone to use.

On a side note...is anyone using a higher capacity LiPo? I'm using a Tenergy 900mAh . It doesn't really fit too well as its a bit tall for the tray and I have to use my previously broken tray. I've thought of using something like this battery but not sure if it will fit in the space beneath when you take out the battery tray.

Happy Flying!

I had excellent results using Testors decal paper with an inkjet printer for the Albatros shown below.

It's necessary to spray a 'fixer' over the ink, but once it's dry the decals are permanent. The film is very thin which is both good and bad. It's good because it conforms to compound curves, but it's bad because it tears easily.

Love the color scheme. I fly in a park with trees all around. Amazing how that OD blends in with trees...

Did you paint just the outside of the body, or inside too? Not sure if you bought the plastic kit for the decals or not, if so where did you get it.

Thanks
