Acrylic craft store paint (brushed on since it was about 5 degree's outside when I painted it) and self adhesive Monocoat on blade tips. Alternated light and dark colors to help with orientation. Also to help the colors stand out.

Well, first I 'brush' it up against the wall a few times during test hops in the house. Then I take it outside and 'rub' it in some nice red dirt. Then after I replace the broken parts I go back outside and 'brush' it up against a tree or two...

For reals this time:


Masked the design on the inside, hit it with Krylon yellow, pulled off the mask, and hit it with Krylon fluorescent orange. It really shows through in the sun:

Ha. I was going to brush the TRex up against some snow today, but it was rather cold and windy so I passed. Wild crash pics. The guy has it titled "My helicopter crash", so presumably they got out?
