    Hey everyone. I am having trouble painting Breakaway's nosecone. As everyone knows, its made of a kinda rubbery material. Whenever I paint it, it rubs off. I can't get the paint to stick. Does anybody have any advice as to how to get it to stick?

    What type of paint are you using? Acrylic usually holds to those rubbery parts.

    Those are enamel. You'll need to prime the part first with a water based paint (ie acrylic)

    use spazstix paints there designed for the rc industry so they have a flexing agent in the paint.most paint chip off when rubber parts bend causing it to crack
