I am pretty sure Dave used this product, I am sure he will chime in if it isnt. Available from Amazon or your local hobby store.

Tamiya PS-31 Smoke Polycarbonate Spray

This one is actually RC colour car body smoke tint. But Tamiya. Would be even better. You have to keep the can moving fast and go around the edge multiple times.

that's what I used, the Tamiya smoke. bonus tip, put the can in a hot pan of water for a few minutes to make the paint more viscous. Spray a light coat at 1st, and keep the can moving and don't let the tip gum up! let it dry overnight, then apply a 2nd coat the next day. Keep the can moving when spraying!!!!

Can anyone using a Cheetah post a pic showing how you mounted the engine?

Default Cheetah engine mounting

I used a piece of 1 1/2" x 1/8" aluminum stock, drilled engine and rail mounting holes, make sure engine mounts are on the bottom of the aluminum or in this case toward the top of the plane to ensure the engine stays centered top to bottom. If you mount the engine on top of the aluminum, the engine ends up 1/8" too low.


This is one of my mounting plates.

Default New UltraFlash EVO Tanks

hello Friends, I have ready the CMJETS tank EVO version and will be ready in short the EVO plus, a bigger tank with more capacity, ideal for use like unique tank.

More pictures in short. And of course, in all my Main UF Tanks the new top shape for not more problems with the canopy close system.
