It's Testor's enamel from the hobby shop, Rustoleum paint for plastics from Home Depot and some other Rustoleum spray paint that didn't melt the foam. Actually whatever came to hand from a shelf full of the stuff. The white lines are done with a white paint Sharpie.

Yes, I know it's upside down.
You guys that paint or colour your Alula with markers, how do you stop it wearing off or smudging where you grab the wing to do a throw?

More Pile-it than Pilot

I have a blade on mine, so I am not really grabbing the plane, but my fingers do rub right around it.

I put a layer of thin clear packing tape over it, top and bottom, but only in the places where my fingers might touch it.

battery pack


jz, can I ask where your getting the battery packs from? Mike is out of stock and my LHS is clueless on these small rx packs.

I'm just waiting for the 1/3aa battery pack from a place in northern CA.

they sell two for 9.99. they are 300mah

my hitec 2.4g RX was a little long, and I had to dig out some extra foam to get it to set down into the rx slot. Where I fly there are a lot of hawks. Hope I dont get attacked!

Yea, can't wait for that interaction. We get a few quite large and mean looking birds of prey where I've been flying from time to time...

My Alula Video


Flying the Alula Evo in 2+ mph winds straight off the Gulf of Mexico. More wind will equal more hang-time.

samson - nice vid man, thanks for posting. Looks like you've got her dialed in perfectly! Can I ask you what your complete setup is and what she weighs in at?
Oh, and nice decision to pull her in at the last moment there, looks like the lift died and the water was calling her in. Many (me) would have turned out hoping for that last updraft, and ended up in the drink!
