Just got a Motrolfly DM2205-1800kv and mounted it on mine. Suppose to be great power on 2 cells.
We'll see if the weather ever straightens up a little.

Stripe masking - Blue masking tape.

Stars - adhesive foam stars that I found at Target.

Paint - Krylon spray acrylic - H2O.

Does "Painting" with sharpies work well? Do they make wide tip ones?

What glue do you guys use? Is Gorilla Glue good; or Goop?

Thanks!

Sharpies work just fine. I've seen some guys do some really nice work with them They come in several different tip sizes, just check the Office Supply dept. at Walmart. For EPP, I REALLY recommend Welder's Adhesive. Get it at Lowe's, or order on-line. Just the best for EPP planes, also does nice,simple hinges.

Welders glue is best. Stays flexible. I got mine here http://www.amazon.com/Professional-I...pd_cp_hi_2_img
good price and you don't have to drive all over he$$ looking for it.

Try White Gorilla. Try on some scrap foam. It is stronger than the foam, and the hinges are strong and flexible.
