Then use a blank piece of paper, try some test sprays. Practice with settings and see what effects they have. Try to get a fine line with it. Try spraying a broad line. Learn to shut off the gun after each sweep of the gun. If using Latex after spraying paint, I run some soapy water through the gun to keep it clean. If regular paint, you can run nail polish remover or acetone through it. This is kind of dangerous if your smoking or near an open flame.
    I use latex for my rc models also and not any trouble yet and just clean with water when done,
