    Th only comment I would make I think would be obvious. Those things are going to be WAY out of balance, Why didn't you do a lead to both sides to at least try to keep them balanced?

    This is an accident waiting to happen, IMO. Your craft and your hobby. That observation is just based on my 30 years of flying. Balance is EVERYTHING in this hobby, and what cuts through the air is more important than anything else (for the most part). This is going to cause unnecessary vibration and be hell on your motors and bearings, especially over the long haul.

    I spend as much time balancing props as I do anything in the routine maintenance of this hobby. Balance matters.

    How do you change the batteries? It would be cool to print something that would snap to the top of the stock prop.

    Also are they activated by inertia?

    That's what I plan on fine tuning, I plan on using double sided heavy duty tape with a button battery holder. The reason for double sided tape is that it's the only thing that will work! Epoxy and gorilla glue won't. Rite now I have to peel the double sided tape off to change the battery's.

    Didn't realize they were on the bottom too! Time for me to exit stage right.

    Happy flying.

    I place a small piece of tape to the positive wire to turn them on! Just looking for the rite holder for the battery's. Don't want to add to much weight.

    There was really no balance issues, but like I said in a previous post....I would not fly with these on in sport mode. But in Atti they work fine!

    There's another mod I did where I made thumb sticks for my P4 by using PlayStation 4 thumb sticks.

    Why not just get some glow in the dark fingernail polish and paint the tips (both) and "charge" them before you fly?

    And you won't get the same affect, those LEDs are incredibly tiny!

    I've flown over a mile with these night blades at night in Atti mode. And I oil my own bearings on my P4....and this was intended as a cosmetic not performance mod.

    Those are ridiculously cool. Would be nice if DJI adopted them, maybe paying you a royalty, as an official accessory.

    These techniques have been around for years.
    CP-helicopter guys did this over a decade ago.
