Pimp my drone?

LOL - the tennis player Novak Djokovic got a drone from his sponsor California Dates. He brought  it to an auto paint shop to get it a custom paint job..what's next, lowrider quads?

That's not so bad. It's just

That's not so bad. It's just painted in his sponsor's colours. We'll see crazier paint jobs once airbrushing catches on :)

Like this one from Roban model (http://www.robanmodel.com/cms/index.php/rc-multirotor/phantom-2-robot/12...)

Clean, very clean. I like how

Clean, very clean. I like how they went with a design pattern on the frame instead of a solid colour. Orange wasn't really my thing, but this just might turn me to the orange side...lol
I wonder if those motors are custom or came in that color

I believe the motors were

I believe the motors were originally black, and the tops were painted. But I could be wrong...don't take my word on that. The design on the frame is just a wrap.

Speaking of wraps, I like

Speaking of wraps, I like some of the wraps that are available for the DJI Inspire.

Going along with the orange theme - this one's supposed to provide high visibility as well.

I see these pretty often too - not my thing personally, but pretty popular

DJI's going to let people

DJI's going to let people customize their own shells in the future - they have a design contest going on now - they'll select the best designs and make them available for sale!

On top of that, looks like

On top of that, looks like DJI says they'll purchase the best designs and make a limited run. No hope of getting any royalties from the design - mostly bragging rights and some up front payment from DJI. I can see this spawning new businesses who'll do custom shells for people, but if DJI offers customization from the factory later on, those businesses will be non-starters.
