So I decided to change the top cover. I find the original cover boring and need change. DJI provides 3 colors, which are meh at best. The specific color I want is crimson red. I know they sell skins out there, but I really do not wish to add more weight to my Tello (already use heavier propellers). I saw a thread on another forum where they sumerge plastic on cloth due to change the colors. I am willing to try that and post my results once I succeed.

What color or sticker do you guys use?

I painted the hull with a special colored markers waterproof: metallic on top with metallic red lines on both sides

Well, it didn't end up how I hoped. It even accentuares the scratches on it... 15467383445954259286677072847501.jpg

It's starting to grow on me. I think it looks different, but not by much. 20190106_044442.jpg
