Looking for non-slip tape
#1
I'm looking for non-slip (silicone?) tape to attach to a frame to keep the lipo from sliding.  Not the hook stuff, but the rubbery stuff with adhesive on one side.  It's like this stuff on eBay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/2pcs-3M-Self-Adh...1925412844



but I was hoping to find a roll or a larger sheet.  Anybody have any sources?
Thanks!
Scotty

I have been wondering where to get this, as it's used on the Alien frame. I normally just use Velcro but need it for both the quad and battery, becomes a pain when testing new batteries. This would be handy Smile

I'm currently experimenting to find/make something similar to protect the lipo from being damaged by frames screw heads. Today I tried sticking foamy tape to this: http://www.banggood.com/Silicone-Slim-Co...ds=myorder which was an obvious failure, but then I read that silicone sticks well to any locktite, that contains cyanoacrylate. So I just smeared super glue between foamy tape and silicone pad. Will report if that works in the morning when superglue should cure.

EDIT: I just realized that I have some fresh bathroom silicone left over after some repairs, so I also tried that. Sitting and setting Wink

Success! CA glue sticks, but makes foam tape stiff, crushes and breaks clean off the silicone pad. Silicone sealant on the other hand is elastic enough to keep it in place Smile

I think I found the stuff.  On Aliexpress: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/10cm-50c...59184.html

100mm X 160mm sheet for $6.44.  (The URL says 10x50cm, but the description is 10x16cm.)
It'll take two-three weeks to get here, but I'll let you know if it's the right stuff when it gets here.

I also got what I think is the same stuff in a roll (30mm X 500mm) for $4.74, but it may take longer to get here.

This stuff is indeed the correct stuff.  It's 2mm thick and very anti-slippery.  Both are the same material, just different form factor.  (The roll is a bit cheaper by area - but may have more waste for narrower use.)
