I followed the directions for dying gears by way of RIT dye (found here on RR) and ended up with a dark green main gear and tail pulley. I used the liquid version of RIT and think that may have been the problem. Anybody else tried dying their X50 gears? The only other thing I can figure is that the X50 gear material is different than on other helicopters. What do you guys think?

I take it you were not trying for Green?

I dyed my skids black from white and it looked great at first, but over time, the nitro exhaust turned them brown, and then slightly pink. I used the powder form of RIT. Prob the last time I dye anything on a nitro heli.
