Red Launch Button
Shouldn't a launch button be red anyway?
The Estes controllers have been a single color for years now.
I place a piece of colored electrical tape on top of the button.
The old piece was sliding off.
The yellow plastic button has a ridged surface. The tape was removed and the ridges sanded smooth so the new red tape would stick better.
This time the red tape square was cut a bit smaller than the top of the yellow button. Keeping the tape edges away from the button sides will keep the corners from lifting.
This controller is special. It was a prototype model sent out by Estes for customer testing. It was hand wired with a (new for Estes) LED continuity light.
