I am surprised "guests" can post...I thought one needed to be a registered user.
Please feel free to register, introduce yourself, and allow us to formerly welcome you to "this side of the CL circle." We like all toys...string-control, RC and Fire-and-Forget...also known as Free Flight. Laughing


I don't use it...yet. There is a lot of chatter over on StuntHanger, and it is positive. From what I've read (not experienced) is that you need to let it "cure" for a week to ten days. The cook-off period is the key!

Several here are fond of it, but I think they then topcoat with spray poly-urethane. I'm sure more opinions/personal testimonies will be posted. Wait for them.

Just curious...what are you putting it on? Open bay structure? Sealed balsa? We love build threads here.

I'd be careful with using Rustoleum that you don't use the "2X" variety, which claims to cover better. You might find that it adds just a bit too much weight. I have used the normal Rustoleum spray cans which do go on very nicely. I can't attest to its fuel proof abilities as I'm yet to mount an engine to and fly the plane that I painted with it. I actually "baked" the paint on by sitting it beneath my wood burning heater. The finish seems very hard and nice and glossy.

I have two planes gifted to me with the Rustoleum finish. I strongly dislike it. It's not fuel proof even though many make claims it is. It eventually ends up sticky and it gets dirty with fingerprints as the finish become soft and taffy like. Rustoleum Stops Rust with the yellow symbol is what is claimed to be the fuel proof version. Colors are limited and the clear is ABSOLUTELY NOT FUEL PROOF.  I also find the finish heavy and adding polyurethane makes it even heavier. I'm using 10% nitro on my planes and raw fuel will attack it quickly. To circumvent disaster, I have sprayed just the  nose areas of these planes using a two part auto finish called Spray Max 2K. This isn't a Rustoleum product. This is a two part urethane which mixes in the can once you pop the plunger on the bottom of the can. The paint must be immediately used and if let sit, you may get 3 days of use out of it before it entirely hardens in the can. It costs about $25 a can but it works terrific for this application. I'm quite certain if a paint is going to kill you it's Spray Max 2K so read the cautions.
