what type of paint is used to paint the canopies? is it sold in hobby shops or paint shops? can this chrome paint be used http://www.innate.com/Paint/Chrome.htm or http://www.innate.com/Paint/Xotic/Crystals.htm or any paint sold by them?
is there any priming i need to do before painting and do i need to apply a clear coat or fuel resistant type coating?
i've only done paint jobs on rc lexan bodies so i'm not sure how it differs from heli's.
it will be going on a hawk sport body.
Thanks

From what I understand you can paint it with whatever you want as long as you prime your canopy, paint, and then clear cote it afterwords.

I am painting my first one right now and am using the Pactra lexan paints, they are working very well.
