Phantom & RC Aircraft Graphics

We offer several sets of graphics specifically designed for the Phantom aircraft, although they will work on nearly all RC equipment.
These guidelines have been prepared specifically for the sets we sell, with links to pertinent guides located elsewhere on this site.

ALL APPLICATIONS: You must start with a clean surface!

We recommend cleaning with a gentle cleaner like 70% isopropyl alcohol mixed 50/50 with water and sprayed on to remove grime and light petroleum contamination. Windex and some other glass cleaners contain a chemical treatment intended to repel liquid, and actually contaminate the surface for vinyl application purposes. We have had good success using Goof Off brand cleaner for metal and some plastic surfaces, which is quite effective on left over sticker adhesive residue, but must be followed up with the alcohol/water mix above. TEST- TEST- TEST your cleaner on a concealed portion of the material you are preparing for graphic application to ensure the cleaner does not damage the surface.

Consider using tweezers or the edge of a razor to pick up and position stickers, because the less you touch the adhesive side, the better it will stick.

! If it spins, don't put a sticker on it !

Phantom Identity Set

Printed on 3M removable premium automotive grade vinyl, this set is easy to install because although the vinyl is intended for one time use, it is re positionable during installation to insure a perfect fit. Just lift it back up if you don't like it and lay it back down. The images below are suggestions for positioning the stickers according to their purpose. Once in place, smooth the vinyl with the pad of your finger, then go over it with the back of your fingernail with about 20# of pressure to seal the edges. The stickers will not come off by themselves, but may easily be removed without chemicals by merely lifting the edge and pulling away from the surface.

Note: some of the graphics are very small and may be easier to place using tweezers or the tip of a hobby knife. This will also reduce the chance of contaminating the adhesive backing. Slip the tip of the tweezers under the sticker on the carrier sheet, then lift and move into position and apply as above.
Controller face:

Left toggle: S2
Right toggle: S1 (choose one of the 2 provided)
Left stick: Ascend, Yaw Left, Yaw Right, Descend
Right stick: Forward, Roll Left, Roll Right, Reverse
Above power switch: Pre-flight checklist

The colored sticker at the base of the antenna is not included in this set, it comes with the Arm Color Set.
The set includes two LED pattern legends which may adhere to the battery cover, depending on which controller protocol you have enabled in the software assistant. Default from the factory is the Vision protocol (alternate is NAZA-M).

Also note the personalized 'IF FOUND' sticker located above the battery well and serial number.
This set includes 2 number sets 1-4 for identifying the arms or motors. Note: applying the sticker to the spinning motor housing may disturb balance. (apply to bottom of motor to assist in replacement) Image shows sticker on bottom of arm.
Battery identification stickers assist with tracking power problems, purchase dates or use rotation (5 included).
The fancy script name stickers may be used on the nose of the Phantom, controller face, equipment case, or ?
S1 and S2 switch legends at the top of the controller. There are 2 S1 stickers, choose the one that depicts the programming on your controller (FAILSAFE or MANUAL function).

The colored sticker comes with the Arm Color Set.
Warning and Reward Set

This set is printed on a thin (2mm) premium cast vinyl that is not re positionable, with an aggressive adhesive. Simply position and stick down to a clean surface with the soft pad of your finger, then the back of your fingernail with approximately 20# of pressure. No special instructions for DJI aircraft or controllers. If applying to cases or other equipment, review flame treatment for low-density plastics.
Arm Colors

Printed on 3M removable premium automotive grade vinyl, these are easy to install because although the vinyl is intended for one time use, it is re positionable during installation to insure a perfect fit. Just lift it back up if you don't like it and lay it back down. Once in place, smooth the vinyl with the pad of your finger, then go over it with the back of your fingernail with about 20# of pressure to seal the edges. The stickers will not come off by themselves, but may easily be removed without chemicals by merely lifting the edge and pulling away from the surface.
There are 5 stickers in this set, with the long stickers fitting inside of the indention located on the Phantom arms. To install, stick one side of the color stripe just inside the indention <not on the edge or over the top of the indention> then lay it down moving toward the other side as you touch it into place, within the edges of the indention. Once in place, smooth down as above.

The pattern/solid color combination may be achieved by combining color sets (see available patterns/sets here).

The small controller sticker may be located anywhere on the unit to show correlation to the bound aircraft.

Equipment Case Logos and Graphics
and Helispots

These are cut from a thin (2mm) premium cast vinyl that is not re positionable, with an aggressive adhesive. Simply position and stick down to a clean surface with the soft pad of your finger, then the back of your fingernail with approximately 20# of pressure. See the Vinyl Application guideline for specific instructions with graphics that are supplied with transfer tape. The graphic is sandwiched in between a material liner (bottom) and transfer tape (top) that allows the entire graphic to be applied to the surface as one piece together in perfect alignment. Parts of these graphics may be cut off, removed or repositioned before application. Using masking tape to position the graphic is advisable.

Particularly well suited for non porous smooth surfaces, but will work very well with lightly textured non porous surfaces also.

If you end up with air bubbles beneath the vinyl, don't try to run it to the edge of the vinyl. Instead, pierce the bubble with the head of a sharp pin and ease the air out. Don't use the edge of a razor. Alternately, the vinyl is gas permeable and the bubbles will probably dissipate in a few days.

If applying to cases or other equipment, review flame treatment for specialty plastics.
