    I like to fly the same props from the same package at least till I break one on a tree, building, or the ground lol. I took to using a sharpie to mark the silver and black props for the left and right side so I can keep the matched props together thought I'd share

    What's the advantage? Are you figuring they will have about the same amount of wear and tear?

    Nice props!
    I'm still running my first set of 9450s (have spare set just in case).
    Do yours help with visual orientation?

    I'd have to say in my limited experience at low speed (idling) yeah but once going fast enough to lift off no they spin to fast for me at least

    "Sharpie" is a brand name of a popular "permanent" marker pen.

    Nice job and much lighter than painting the props. Now where did I put that pack of Sharpies? :D

    Yeah sharpie markers and painters tape I did the lighter colour first in case the colour bled through the tape which it did but the darker then covered it up.
