    I have noticed that there is not much talk about custom painting or custom skins, nor wrap kits. There are threads dealing with PlastiDip, but I want to see some custom air brush or a bad ass wrap on your bird. Post your experience and pics on this thread! I got mine!!

    How about a skin made of Reflexite SOLAS Marine Prismatic Reflective material? Thinking this might really help with dusk visibility. This is the most reflective stuff in existence apparently, used for search and rescue etc.

    Very cool! I'm looking forward to adding these new Mini Blue Neons to mine for cool night flight.

    Took neon orange and green monokote trim sheets to the arms. MUCH better visual for orientation. Will be putting shark mouth and eyes on front.

    @sirnikolas I got it on Amazon here;

    Reflexite M82 SOLAS Marine Prismatic Reflective Tape: 2 in. x 15 ft. (Silver-White) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00DWBI2KO

    But after receiving it I realized it wasn't what I was looking for, as it only reflects light directed at it. Since I don't plan to track it with a search light I figured what I'm really looking for is more of a phosphorescence material / tape that will aid dusk visibility without a separate light source.

    I searched around and found this crazy looking stuff and ordered a few sheets. I'll let this thread know how this stuff works out.

    I have to agree the inspire ...... Lacks a face.

    Surprised there isn't more decal kits for it yet

    Here's a pic of my Inspire's nose. It's cut self adhesive vinyl, rated for outdoor use.

    Hi guys I purchased a V2, just got it today and here I am checking out custom Inspires already! Joined the forum just to check it out. I notice in another thread the question was asked if there was a template file out for a custom decal. Any progress on that? Cheers! Ash
