Ever have the Idea of wanting to design your DTFB plane so you can see it in the air, but you dont have spray paint you only have ultracote? no? well I'll just show you anyways! (P.S. ignore my messy workshop)
Take your iron and set it to the lowest possible setting so you dont melt the foam, avoid using a heat gun or a high temperature becuase it will melt the foam and ruin your plane and your day.
I'm using Hangar 9 Multi temp ultracote but you can use any type you want.
Determine the design you want to do, in this case I'm doing stripes and abit extra that you'll see at the end!
Cut out your design.
Place your design where you want it to be, you can use a small amount of tape to remove keep it in place and remember to remove the paper from the back.
Use the iron and put heat on the ultracote while applying abit of pressure, make sure not to hold it in one position as that too will melt the foam.
Repeat steps 2-5 untill you are happy with your design
In conclusion there is a few things that I would have changed for next time, one is to try have have less wrinkles near the leading edge where it wasnt that straight and two I should have used more colours but I couldn't this time becuase I only had yellow on hand. There was a few steps I skipped where I cut out the letters but since not alot of people will be wanting letters I didn't feel it was necessary to include that but if you do want to know I will be more than willing to show you how I did the letters in another article.
Thank you for viewing my article I hope it helped you, if you have any questions comment below I'll try to answer asap or come see me at FliteFest 2016 I'll be walking around with the plane above!
