I skinned my MA2 with a new skin. Very pleased with results. A few flights reinforced the ability to find it in the sky and reward of custom look once on the ground. Hope you enjoy. Share your skins

Hello there djicheaha. Thank you for reaching out and for posting photos your cool skinned DJI Mavic Air 2 here at DJI Forum. Your DJI Mavic Air 2 looks totally cool. Just a reminder to place the said sticker on your DJI Mavic Air 2 on a location where in it will not interfere with the air-vents of the said drone to prevent overheating or any issue while flying your DJI Mavic Air 2. Have a safe and a happy flying always.

But it is "almost invisible" after landing in an urban area ...?

If you remove it does it leave the surface all sticky and gooey?

I favored the gloss on this skin. Good luck.

No, I have found they remove easily, with no reside. Although, I have not had one on for a very long time. My sense, is no. And if there should be a concern, I have found confidence in Goo gone on other projects. Always test a spot to be sure and wipe off.

Thanks, I just ordered the same design.  I primarily fly on or near the beach, and the drab gray color of the MA2 would make it difficult to spot if I had to do an emergency landing somewhere.  Wish they offered a choice of colors like they did with the original MA.

Good choice. I think you will see improved visibility on the ground and in the air. I have not flown this setup at the beach yet, but fley my red MA and color helps. Wish you well on your covering and flying. Post pictures.

I like the skin you applied as well and am considering applying a skin to my Mini to improve visibility.

I've been wondering what color would make the drone more visible at distance. I'm considering orange like yours because it's a bright color, but there are certainly a myriad of brightly colored skins available.

Can you provide the site you purchased your skin from?  DecalGirl.com seems to have a good rep and a huge variety of skins for the Mini.

Thank you for your comment. This covering was purchased at DecalGirl to cover my MA2.
I have also covered my Mini, with their product.  (this was custom design from my sister artwork) and Fit is good. Easy to apply instructions, with patience. I like the brighter color, as it does improve visibility in close quarters, and I think, it adds some character and looks cool. Once you get out, a couple of hundred feet, color makes little difference as it is merely a dot in the sky. Many colors to chose from, your call. There are also other vendors, who have neon colors, that have favorable reviews. Wish you well.

It's a cool look but at 400-500 meters where I typically start to lose sight of my MA2 I don't think it would make any difference.  Even at 300 meters I only see the silhoutte of the drone...not any details like color.

Thank you for your comment. Here is a counter top shot of the same skin on a Mavic Mini. It is called "combustion" from DecalGirl. I changed covering on my first MM, due to repair/replacement. The second skin was removed to display my sister artwork

That one is called Dystopia, from DecalGirl. I liked that one alot. That was my first covering. I had an encounter with a tree, sent it in for DJI Refresh and they returned a new/refurbished. So went with new wrap, Combustion. Liked that so much, I covered my MA2. Changed out the MM with sister artwork, and now have (still in package) WrapGrade, Black "bumpy" Camo for a change. Will post picture, when I get around to it. Enjoy your flying and mods. Be safe.

Good looking wrap. I like it. My new wrap, black bumpy camo from Wrapgrade for my MM is a full wrap. You just encouraged it from packaging to the work bench
