    Use dye or a Sharpie marker. There are various threads about it here.

    The best thing to use is Rit dye if wanting to do the whole prop. If just wanting to paint the tips, a sharpie is your best bet.

    Do not use paint as it will affect the balance.

    I've painted my tips and also have dyed some. Instead of rit dye I used idye poly (can be found at Jo-Ann's fabrics and some arts/crafts stores). The idye poly (make sure its "poly") also will dye the phantom body, transmitter shell etc.

    That is an active and recent topic. Why don't you just ask the person that posted the picture?
