Who Professionally Paints Booms in our Hobby?
I know that Canopy FX will paint booms for you.

Who else paints booms, and vertical fins for that matter, professionally in our hobby?

Thx.
Saturday morning I flew my helicopter in my pajamas
How it got in my pajamas I'll never know

I've had Scott - Ace Helis do fins etc, as well as Oat from Insane, both great work for these side items. Never had a boom done, but can't see it being all that different to do....Once upon a time there were Nitros, flybars and frequency pins...

Keep in mind that if you paint the boom you may have trouble getting the boom to fit nicely into the frame and or tail casing due to the added thickness of the paint. Just a thought.

My first thoughts Mike. By the time you add primer, paint, and clear coat it gets thick pretty quick.

You can tape off an inch or two to leave "stock" where it goes into the frame if you want.

i used to paint all my booms,the only problem i had was where the gearbox fit on the back sometimes.most of the time the boom fits the frames better and tighter.

Why not fit the boom, mark it, and then pain the center area? Then no worries on it fitting or not........RonTeam MikadoUSA 480XXTreme, 550SX, 600SX, 700XXTreme, 800XXTreme!!
