No prob elshiftos,

The clear are great at night as well. You'll need to get used to identifying the prop CW/CCW by looking at the edge Thick and thin, the A&B are almost impossible to see on some. So where ever the thick side is that's how it turns Left or Right...If your already familiar then you will def. enjoy them, I also like to push them down on an old motor shaft once to, I have popped a lot of bottoms off by being careless..

Great at night because they reflect LED light?

I have the LED pointing down mod on mine but will change it if the clear props look better

You just need more of them. At some stage, the circle will close. My kids come every day "Dad, I found a prop" somewhere in the house or yard

Seriously, those clear ones sit so tight, I rarely loose them. Gotta be careful though, if they are too tight, you can wreck the motor by pressing them on too hard. I always stick them on an old motor first to prep the hole a little.

Ok i flew my little blue eyed green monster around yesterday and last night.
Took a while to get use to the sliding hockey puck effect i felt after learning to fly micros on light framed quads.
It feels like a fast rock to me.
Thats a neat thing to me as I have to fly it completely differently then my other quads.

Threw clear props on and voyaged out the front door.
its the brightest thing I've flown at night, I could orient better than in the day.
I flew everywhere in my front yard and i heard
"thats cool! do you know where that thing lives?" from a guy to his friend behind a hedge in a parking lot next door.
I was on my front porch bench in the dark unseen.
I never crashed and felt like my porch was a dock and i was piloting a boat. (remember the "no touching the ground game")
thats when i realized I've become an ok pilot.
that i can fly comfortably a ways away at night and bring her back with out worries of hitting anything or anyone. I keep her away from people and cars as much as possible.

I have found that i can't take her to full speed throttle forward without climbing untill 93% rates at the least.
At this rate she will go her full throttle speed and still fly level.
With even some room to tilt/fly downward at full with out having to throttle down. (great for high speed dips under branches when you see them coming a bit late) its a more responsive drop then letting the weight of the quad pull it down by throttling down
Its a twitchy animal yet i get less "scoot" when i release the stick with more ease so the change is less drastic to the quad.

I love this thing its like learning to tame a horse.
