Hi Jason,

Yes I painted the props myself using Tamiya acrylics. I just painted the whole blade grey, then masked the red tip and painted it, then masked the white stripe and painted that. The black bits at the roots were just painted by eye.
I had to drill the hubs out to about 1.6mm as the other hubs offered by KP were 2mm which was too big. I would reccommend doing this slowly and carefully. I drilled a little bit from each side untill I was all the way through.
They should measure 85mm in diameter once you've got the blades on the hub, that's what size mine are.
I hope you manage to get them on and get flying, and don't forget to post some pics once you're done!
Cheers
Dave
