This gets on exactly how to color RC parts making use of RIT dye in powder kind. I am not responsible if you damages or ruin any of your parts using this method. I am simply sharing with you how I do this and also what effect this method has.


I will certainly make use of colored parts in my quadcopter build, nonetheless opening action is just for appearances. It has nothing to do with function.:-RRB-.

RIT color is item for dyeing material. Nonetheless, individuals determined that this things dyes plastic products very well as well as it's incredibly popular within RC area. Black dye particularly dyes things flawlessly as well as it's virtually impossible to inform if something is dyed or otherwise. Big benefit of dyeing is that you can not scratch it of and also it doesn't add additional layer like paint does.


1. This process is completely IRREVERSIBLE, so see to it that this is what you desire!
2. If you spray the dye on the cooktop or cooking area aspect, clean it ASAP. Color will leave marks on pretty much anything (plastic, wood ...). Recognize that danger!
3. Temperature, on one hand, is necessary for proper dyeing ( color doesn't truly do anything in cold water), but on the other hand heat might thaw the plastic. So, be very cautious with water temperature level. If you warp something like connector you will certainly have difficult time to connect it in later on.
4. Realize that by dyeing anything that has steel parts you take the chance of rust. Color itself does not affect metal, nonetheless water does. So e.g. cables as well as connectors (T-plug) can corrode if you do not dry them effectively. Additionally, you can't truly stop water from entering the cable so know that risk. You can not dry it entirely either. I suggest not utilizing very first few inches of dyed wire preferably.


1. I suggest to stick to BLACK color only. You can dye parts with various other colours also, however, outcomes aren't typically that great. Also, you can only color from light to dark colours. So, e.g. you can color white plastic to any kind of colour, yet blue can only be colored black.
2. Make sure that all parts are completely clean as well as free of any kind of dirt, oil and/or oil. Dye will not permeate trough this and you will certainly end up with unequal and also ugly results.
3. RIT color will certainly not dye stainless steel pots as well as they are simple to tidy after dyeing. Likewise, you can securely utilize them for cooking afterwards. However, the most effective way is to use some old pot that you don't use for food preparation any longer.
4. I make use of around 1/3 of the bag for the quantity of water I've utilized in the video. Of course, for even more water you need a lot more dye.
5. You can reuse dye. Simply warm it up again and also you are excellent to go. Certainly, you can not dye stuff constantly without including more dye. But you will see when there is to little color, do not worry.:-RRB-.
6. Coloring generally takes between 15-30 mins, nevertheless it relies on type of plastic and it could occupy to an hour. If something doesn't color even after a hr it most likely will never dye. A lot of plastics dyes just great and also cables to. You can't dye metal parts!
7. I usually make use of a tranquility of wood for mixing. It's excellent since it sops water so it's a great deal more challenging to inadvertently wallow. You can likewise utilize a tranquility of flatware (fork, spoon or something).
8. When dyeing servo wires it's good idea to get rid of pins from servo adapter and also color wires with pins however without connectors. This way you do not take the chance of melting or buckling the adapter and it's a lot simpler to dry this later which is necessary to stop corrosion.
9. If you have couple of larger parts instead of numerous tiny ones, you can simply utilize fishing string and loophole them completely. This way you will have the ability to pull them out quickly. For tiny parts I suggest utilizing some sort of basket like I did.
