    Brand new P3A owner.. Just got it out of the box and still charging the batteries..

    Looking at the propellers, they have a plastic coating over the center/screws. It looks like packaging plastic that should be removed, but it really doesnt want to come off (easily).. Do I peel off this plastic or leave it on?

    I use a small utility knife to break the plastic so it starts to tear. If you do the same, make sure you don't cut into the prop :)
