    I bought a set of micro hex/allen keys and carefully unscrewed the parts I wanted to spray. I just wanted something different to look at. I have sprayed a few rc cars in the past which helps

    are the propellers painted or dyed? They look great!

    If painted - did you balance after painting? Any noticeable difference in the air?

    Lou - i tend to agree -- although i played with doing some odd things with dye and some damaged props ;)

    The second part is the more important part anyway

    It should make it a lot more visible in the air - that always helps!
