I have been thinking of using Orange and White but I wasn't sure how it would look. So I decided to customize this 3 inch DIY kit "Tyro 79" into White/Orange theme.

I spray painted the carbonfiber parts White matte and used Orange accent colors when possible.
I also managed to make Smartaudio work even though VTX didn't have any visible SA pads available. (Smartaudio pad was there but it was hidden under one connector and it wasn't documented anywhere. Figuring it out took quite a long time but now it works :+1: )

This was nice little easy build :) .

Yes, rattle can spray paint seems to hold quite well. I have also used it to paint patterns with 3D-printed template. (See builds https://rotorbuilds.com/build/17007 and https://rotorbuilds.com/build/16478 ) .
Especially the build #17007 has had some very rought landings, high speed hits into trees and into the ground but still the spray painted pattern is holding up good :D
