Has anyone painted their tello to make it a bit more easy to see which IMG_20180724_093127.jpgway is front when just flying for fun not using the camera? I have painted top cover and front props and guards in fluro orange. The top cover took it great really pop's, probably should have put some primer on the props and guards as it hasnt taken quite so well and is a bit muted compared. Any way some piccys.

Hi
As a 30 years RC flyer i can say.
Never ever paint your props.
They should be balanced as made.
and tge only times i ever mounted glue on My prop on quads or rc gly
Was on a prop balancer to balance perfectly my prop.

This will give you big problems of rotations amAnd damage to motor shaft.

Be aware
Guy

did think about coloured props but quite a few of the reviews on amazon were not vey good. have flown it quite a few times now as is and havent noticed any change in performance or stability. was a very light even coating as i was wary of causing imbalances.
