Question
Trimming Plastic - What Dremel Cutting Wheel

I've got to trim a piece of plastic off a Walkera plastic canopy. My plan was to using painters tape as a guide and to prevent scratching the plastic. I've got a Dremel but just not sure which cutting tool to use. Any suggestions???

I always use this one: http://www.dremel.com/en-us/Accessor...l.aspx?pid=426
The sanding drum http://www.dremel.com/en-us/Accessor...l.aspx?pid=407 is nice for cleaning up afterwards.
If it is only thin plastic, the curved scissors are better. http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXEVT3&P=ML

I agree, I use the trim scissors from tower to cut my canopies. Things can go wrong real fast with a dremel. If I have to, I'll use a sanding block to smooth out the cut lines a bit.
