I stick to Graupner E props or APC slowfly props both reliable and good quality props.

Both er direct fits on the stock DJI 2212 motors.

I agree with you echo. But the OP wants cheap and coloured.

@boss777. It seems that the coloured props on the market are pretty cheap and I would advise not to ream out the hubs to fit the 8mm dji motor.

Maybe an alternative would be to source fluorescent plastic friendly spray in the colours of your choice and give your dji props a light coat.

Hi Guys;
Hoping Box777 doesn't mind my 'piling on' with a similar question for a diff quad.
I'm new to the game too, & have a Hoverthing HT450 in near-complete stage.
I need to pick out some props, and also want 2 black & 2 orange or greens to help with orientation (flying X-style config if that'll make a difference). For the motors/ESCs I have installed, I'm told 8's or 9's x4.5, maybe a set of 10's to see what works best for aerial video platform.

Frankly, I don't really know what to look for! My main question - I see multitudes of these 'Slow-Flyer' type blades, seems like more of those available than regular 'E' types....but wondering are they stiff enough for my intended use. I don't want to invest in expense of CF blades at least until I've found what size/pitch works best. Anyway, are the Slow-Flyer types something I should embrace, or avoid?
Thanx for any advice in narrowing down my search!
